Decided to put my musings on a blog. Will write as often as I can. I am Black (or Brownish-Black or Darkish Brownish, Caramel Brown or Just Brown 🙂 –OKAY–just go with “I AM BLACK AND PROUD”.
I am also Conservative. I am so so amazed by very many things in the USA, related and unrelated to politics. I will write about everything I care about and things that happen to me and other folks.
I did not spend my formative years or youth in the USA and have found that my perceptions as an African elite have affected my world view and will undoubtedly lead to some of my posts seeming a tad vitriolic, I think.
As for describing myself as the African elite, well, clutch your pearls in shock all you want (HA HA), but that is what we were when I lived and grew up there. There were labels and tags and we did not feign and pretend that they did not exist. The difference was that it did not change the balance in our society. We just accepted things as they were and lived happily and in peace for the most part.
Now I live in the West. Married to an American and living for the most part, a very Americanized life-mostly (HA). For purposes of full disclosure and since I am proud of my entire family, I have to share that about seventy (70%) of my family is White, and the rest of us, including me, are not. We are all part of the diverse group of people, all bringing something special to God’s world.
Politics fascinates me because it permeates so much in the American cultural fabric and lives. The media drives politics and people are enthralled and largely controlled by TV et al.
I am a lawyer. Have many advanced degrees. Why? Because I love study and learning. I also love the LAW. Being lettered is useless, I have found, if you cannot use it to understand and positively manipulate your world. Learn, its wonderful, but apply it in life.
Above all this, I am a Pentecostal Christian, through and through and that defines me MORE than anything else! The Bible is the most enthralling book I have ever read and experienced. I recommend it to everyone!!!
I will write on everything. I do my own thing. Oh, I also like Joyce Meyer. Where that comes into all this I do not know. But what the heck, it is my blog. 🙂
