The Haves vs the Have Nots

I wonder how it is that people have the time to talk about discrimination concerning one race against the other, when I’ve yet to see a race that doesn’t discriminate within itself?

How is it that we can talk about racism from one color to the next, yet look down on people that look just like we do because they make less, believe differently, eat differently, dress differently?

Isn’t that ironic?

There is an easy way to help us all check our stereotypes and egos:

1. Before you speak on others, look at yourself.
2. Do not get wrapped up within the media, they are only there to divide and conquer.
3. Think, say, and do something nice towards another person daily.
4. Rebuke actions and not people.
5. Last, but not least, stay humble and empathetic, because it is through those characteristics that we are able to see things for what they truly are.

Not all people of any one race is one thing and it is purely ignorant to think that way. If God is ALL, and we claim to love God, how can we not love all?

We are all different because we all serve a different purpose, yet we are all from the same. If you truly want to be upset about anything, be upset about
the rich, no matter what color, that are selfish. Be upset about people in powerful positions that don’t promote the general welfare of the people, no matter their color. Be upset about the controlling and dividing systems. But do not show hatred against your neighbor.

How is it that someone that is on television, that we’ll probably never meet, can cause a racial divide within a community? How is it that we can speak to/see each other every day, but then some political stance (or even something as minor as a sports debate) have us looking at someone we spoke to/saw daily as now the ultimate enemy?

We have to wake up people. We are not their cattle to be emotionally, spiritually and physically herded into whatever direction is “trending” at the time. We have to KNOW and have FAITH and stop following these characters blindly. Find your purpose. Find peace.

The Open-Minded versus the Intellectually Close-Minded

I’ve noticed that a lot of people claim to be open-minded, but what IS “being open-minded?” I don’t know all of the technical definitions, but the street definition seems to be anyone that can think above those that they are around. Now…is that a true open-mind or is that simply a logical or rational mind?
There is nothing wrong with being logical or critical within your thinking. Those are some absolute, necessary steps towards becoming open-minded but they do not DEFINE an open mind.
Some people that I’ve encountered have claimed to be OM’ed, but I’ve noticed that it only goes to a certain extent. It’s as if they surround themselves with people that they think could never “out-think” them. They will banter back and forth with those that they believe are ignorant. They will implant new ideas into the minds of those that may have never thought about things in a certain way, BUT as soon as they meet a fellow OM’ed person, then they will shut down or just disagree with everything that is being said because it goes beyond their perceived intellect of themselves or the person that they are speaking to. Nothing around them ever seems to “make sense” because it doesn’t fit into the mold of their mind.
That…is…not…being…open-minded!
That is a close-minded intellectual.

The Living Dead

The moment most people hear this, they tend to automatically think about a reanimated corpse that’s hungry for brains. With all of the “advances” in science, the idea isn’t too far-fetched considering they’ve even conducted “Zombie Drills.” Now, not to discredit the possibility of that scenario, I would like for you to think about a different one.
Travel through this maze of possibilities with me:

I would like to bring back a topic that I mentioned in my previous post; “You are what you eat.”

Have you ever thought about how many people there actually are in the world? Have you ever thought about how much we all consume?
Not only how much we eat but how much we use and dispose of products?
Have you ever thought about the amount of plants and animals it would take to supply the demand of all of these people?

These are questions that I don’t think many of us think about often, and if so, then maybe you’ve reached the same idea as I or reached another place altogether. But these questions made me look into the food industry and answers began to unfold.

Containment Through Your Entertainment

You ever heard that phrase, “You are what you eat?” Well, the same can be said about what you think, read, watch, say, and do. You are a product of what you are exposed to, whether by choice or not, and the quality of product you are depends on how you handle your exposure.

“It doesn’t matter the quality of the camera if you handle the negatives incorrectly.” –Me
