Interracial Couple Denied Marriage Based on Race

October 16, 2009
We all know racism is still a part of our society.  You have black churches.  You have white churches.  You have black universities.  You have white universities.  You have black communities.  You have white communities.  You have black sitcoms.  You have boring sitcoms, just kidding.  Anyway you get the point.  However racism is a disease not a joke.  While we as a nation are merely a carrier of this disease today occasionally it decides to make another outbreak.  Front page news today October 16, 2009, "Interracial Couple refused Marriage License."  At first glance one would think that there was more to such a story.  After all we are past this aren't we?  Well dillusionally speaking yes.  We are past lot's of things as Americans.  We are past imperialism, we are past poverty, we are past useless money motivated wars, we are past racism.  However in reality we are all the ugly things we do not see through our "rose-colored glasses."  This story is even more shocking than you may think.  According to this article from the A.P. Keith Bardwell, justice of the peace in Tangipahoa Parish, LA denied multiple interracial couples marriage licenses in the past 2 1/2 years because, "from my experience interracial marriages don't last long," and "it is a tragety for the children and I won't put them through it."  He went on to say in so many words, "I am not a racist I just don't believe the races should be mixing that way."  Wow, what do you say to that?  Unfortunatly this man did use a logical line of reasoning for his decision.  He said that blacks do not accept the children of interracial marriage, and neither do whites.  Keep mind this is the same man who claims he is not a racist because he has lots of black friends that he allows to come into his house and use the bathroom.  However there is some truth here.  We do not accept interracial children.  My wife is black and I am white and often we find that we are hated by everyone.  Even as the DNA molecule cannot distinguish between race and proves that all of us are rooted in Africa, we are hated by all.  We share a common ancestor Ardipithecus Ramidus or "Ardi."  Whites, Blacks, Asians, Hispanics, several million years ago walked bipedally through the forest of Africa in one unified hominid.  We are all brothers and sisters.  My wife is actually half-white and half-black.  The blacks usually consider her an Uncle Tom while the whites call her black by the "one drop rule."  When are we going to accept that science and technology have unified us.  Race is an archaic separation created by religion and culture.  We need to accept ourselves.  We can still be our unique selves without racial division.  Most cultures today are a mezcal, or hodgepodge if you will, of lot's of peoples and beliefs.  Why do we hang on to our false defintions of hatred and racial bigotry?  Grow up America. 
 

Wall Street doesn't help Main Street

September 25, 2009
Michael Moore's new documentary film, "Capitalism: A Love Story," is a direct assault on our way of economic life since the industrial revolution.  But, is he justified?  He says that our system does not give the people the power over the economy.  Well my fellow citizens Michael Moore is right.  The thing is that we need to begin to assume controlling interest of all business in America.  Many people believe that socialism is the government taking control of industry, commerce, and everythin...

A PICTURE THAT IS WORTH A THOUSAND ACTIONS, NO WORDS REQUIRED.

August 13, 2009
This is the picture of armed guards, wearing on a bullet proof vest, guarding food outside of a barred window at a typical grocery store located in:  Detroit, Michigan.  That's right, over 300,000 of Detroits citizens are starving because although they are on food stamps, they cannot find a real grocery store.  Not one major grocery chain operates in Detroit, A city of of nearly a million.  Wake up America.  Your government should not be trusted with anymore power.  They do not give a damn ab...

Random Acts of Violence

August 7, 2009
I do not care what you think about America.  We are in bad shape.  In many societies violence has existed.  It is just that usually people can surmise the reason behind it.  For example it is a bad idea to go to certain neighborhoods in light of the high drug activity or the violence that is present there.  However in America you never know when, where, or why someone may get the urge to just start shooting, and that is a problem unlike any other mankind has ever faced.  We haved a dark under...

It's Okay to Question the Government

August 5, 2009
For the past century the government has done a lot of questionable things.  It seems that there is always some group that they are trying to make out to be the enemy.  First it was the Indians, then the Blacks, then the Japanese, then the Communists, then the Blacks again, and now it is everyone Islamic and/or suspected terrorists.  This is not unlike the red scare.  The only difference is those who our government is oppressing.  We have to ask ourselves how far have we really come as a natio...

Thoughts for Today

June 26, 2009
Our movement is growing my fellow citizens.  We will achieve our goals.  We will shake this nation to it's core and change the world for the better.  Our words, our truths, cannot be denied.  We are America.  We believe in America and the world more than others because we truly believe.  We are willing to act.  Belief without action is void.  We are willing to put a stop to the oppression and force those who have taken our freedoms to give them back.  Mostly we are tired of living at the expe...

American Soldier

June 22, 2009
Being an American soldier has always been a thankless job.  From Ira Hayes to Pat Tillman our soldiers, always willing to pay the highest price, get nothing they deserve for the job that they do.  It is certainly not for glory that they act, but they deserve all that we can give them.  This means first and foremost that we avoid getting the nation into police actions oversees where winning is never the objective.  This means providing them with what they need when we do, while attempting to g...

Don't Tread on Me

June 18, 2009

There is a crisis happening in America. This is the crisis of our blindness. We fail to see what is happening to our fellow citizens. We fail to believe that we can change their plight. Detroit, Michigan is the 11th largest city in the United States. It has lost over half of it's residents. The auto industry has thanklessly left the city in shambles. There are no national grocery store chains in a city of nearly a million people. No bailouts to be had. It is a city where over 30% of the resid...

"The Smoking Gun"

June 12, 2009
The federal government has gone to far.  This new legislation aimed at the tobacco companies is a farce.  It is a wolf in sheeps clothing my fellow citizens.  If the government cared about our health then we would have an optional goverment healthcare program for those who needed it.  If the goverment cared about our health they would not be spending our tax dollars in Iraq and Afgahnistan.  They would be spending it here on health care and education which leads to a health concious society. ...

Real Terrorism

June 10, 2009
On 9-11 two buildings in New York City were destroyed by a random, rogue, and isolated act of terrorism.  On a daily basis people are being killed south of our border in Mexico by drug cartels.  Are daily, unprovoked, acts of terrorism directly across the border from us more dangerous to our nation, or is an isolated terrorist event that happened almost a decade ago more dangerous to our nation? Furthermore Mexico is our ally, but I guess that does not matter when "terrorists" attack them.  M...
