Milk: It Does a Body Good. Happy MLK Day
UPDATE: Being born in the very early 60's (1961) my generation was the 1st generation to embrace the Social Experiment called Racial Integration. Living in Allentown, Pennsylvania during First, Second and Third Grades, there were no separate classrooms or bathrooms or lunch tables for black & white kids. We were fully integrated & everyone got along.
Litlle children don't know hate, they know only love..
I can remember the Motown greats on the radio in our home. My mother bought records from The 5th Dimension & Santana & Diana Ross & Dionne Warwick: these were the sounds of my childhood.
I grew up believing that this is the way is should be.
So how did we get to where we are today, with people trying to fix Racism with MISOGYNY?
Black Radio Stations these days are full of FOUL OFFENSIVE & quite frankly REVERSE RACIST MUSIC, slandering an ENTIRE CLASS of people: namely WOMEN.
Garbage such as this is heard by MILLIONS of people on a daily basis, poisoning the hearts & minds of people ATTACKING WHITE WOMEN with the word BITCH.
So, is this Hate Speech???
The First Amendment grants every US Citizen the right to Free Speech, but is HATE SPEECH protected by the First Amendment?
Then there's THIS that I have dubbed the Pepto Bismal MISOGYNISTIC Advertising Hall of Shame.
Is THIS Hate Speech???
How does this make you feel???
By 1973 or 1974, my family had moved to Aiken, South Carolina when I was in Junior High. This was the first album I bought.
How do we as a people get back to THIS?
So today is the Official recognition of Martin Luther King Day, whose birthday is on January 15th. I wonder what he would say about the sad state of our country?
Apparently, the City of Houston is still experiencing in-fighting between two rival parades, fighting to be recognized as the "Official MLK Day Parade."
I don't know enough about the controversy, so I have linked to this article from the Associated Press:
I'm pretty sure the man who stood for peace, unity & EQUALITY would NOT CONDONE THIS BEHAVIOR IN HIS NAME.
Read my original post on MLK below with thoughts on how to solve this problem with Emotional Intellgence, then check out these related posts:

Emotional Intelligence teaches us caring, empathy, the ability to put ourselves in someone else’ shoes and treating other INDIVIDUALS as we would like to be treated ourselves: like an INDIVIDUAL.
Originally posted in January of 2018, I thought I would explore some of the many root causes of 20th Century Misogyny, how it happened & how we can fix it beginning with the campaign for Lactaid Milk.
PEOPLE are affected by the things we see on TV & hear on the Radio. I have included the Youtube Video to this ad campaign on my page. How does this make you feel when you see & hear this?
Yesterday was MLK Day in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's birthday. His teachings were of equality, inclusion, & respect for all people.
I wonder what he would say about Equal Rights for Women if he were alive today?
