Stereotyping Individuals


UPDATE: Still morning the death of my mom Brenda Stanley, this was written 1yr ago today in response to the race riots in Charlottesville, Virginia.

***********************

So I haven't said much in any official capacity these last couple days. I've been trying to stay busy in my period of mourning for my mother who died of Cancer 5 years ago today. August is always a really hard time of year for that reason. I still miss my mother.

And then I turn on the TV.

It appears that an extremist group of white supremacist are causing riots in Virginia.

These are INDIVIDUALS.

A Group of INDIVIDUALS that don't speak for all white people.

I have lived all over the US & overseas in Singapore, where I met this guy while I was in college. He is MUSLIM. We dated off & on for YEARS when I went back home to Singapore.

I was among the first group of young school children to attend racially-integrated schools in the mid 1960s. I grew up thinking this was normal & as it should be.

Next thing you know, I venture into the "Twittersphere" this afternoon & there are already calls among some people that I follow for the rise of Black Female Leaders.

This attitude is EXACTLY THE SAME as those white supremacists that are causing riots even as I type t his.

It is STEREOTYPING GROUPS OF PEOPLE BASED ON THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN.

I was trying so hard not to be sad on the anniversary of the death of my mother & now - well, I'm just SPEECHLESS.

Now is not the time to put reverse racism on display - due to the actions of INDIVIDUALS.

As a white woman, I am really looking forward to that proverbial Monday Morning Meeting this week.
