A taste of FAITH, a touch of LAUGHTER.
Black Lives Matter?
YES, black lives matter….
Of course they do!
Historically, there has been gross mistreatment and abuse of black lives. Some attitudes from that era do indeed remain and are suffered by individuals today.
I’m not against the expression “black lives matter” except as it becomes divisive and negates other segments of the population, as is sometimes the case. Social media has, I believe, become over politically correct, as seen in the case below.
The media apparently has NO clue that what they are doing and saying can be utterly divisive and destructive to multi racial families who live the realities and truths of cultural acceptance and prejudice every day. Someone did not approve of this photo which rightly expresses the bonds and the love of this family, their non discriminatory voice in the midst of a highly charged political unrest over one particular race. It’s not politically “correct”!

Picture exactly reflects my own family sentiments…..)
Probably very much like that family pictured in the post above, I lived the truth of this dilemma as a “white” woman married to a First Nations man with mixed race children for many years. Along with varying measures of acceptance, we all experienced racism in its different forms from different sources, in schools, in towns and villages, in stores, in hotels and even in churches.
Below, our own family pic from years ago…
ALL lives matter!
That’s the truth we lived…..
It was the necessary nature of our family unit.
