*Gag me. But there is a fool born every minute so…
Somehow the words “racial diversity” in the same sentence as “KKK” seems more like an oxymoron than an actual goal; but this is the supposed new direction of the organization that has come to be recognized as the definition of pure hate towards anyone belonging to a minority group such as Blacks, Jews, Homosexuals, and Catholics.
Founded in December 1865 as a resistance group towards anything that represented even a hint of civil rights towards black people, now, according to John Abarr, a member of the Montana Klan, out with the old and in with the new – Klan, that is. He says the organization wants to add more diversity because they aim to build a strong America.
*A video that shows a woman walking down a street in New York city, enduring one cat-call after another, has gone viral. Many women can relate to the extremely unpleasant experience.
I know I can. The situation it revealscaused me a lot of anguish growing up between the ages of 18 through 21 in New York City.
Then and now, many men apparently believe they are complimenting women when they call out to them on the street because they look good.

And wait until you see who made the list. Many of you agreed with the choices on his blog, entitled, “My top ten list of house Negroes in America for 2014.” In fact, the blogger had a record 55 responses – which is apparently higher than average for him.

*We know how curious our four-legged friends can be, right? Always getting in to things they shouldn’t; then trying to look at you with those doggie eyes, and making your bottom lip tremble because you probably feel guilt for punishing him or her by eating in front of him and not offering ANY!
