My Recent Foray into Houston's Own Little Africa. Take This Job & Shove It Grammys Edition


UPDATE. Women's History Month Day 16. Income Inequality for Women is the #1 reason for opening this web page. I lived in Singapore in 1979 when this picture was taken.


What are we SINGING?


Are we SINGING SOMETHING???


Granny is far from finished screaming very loudly about the Grammys handing out Trophies for TRASH.


We need Ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment & also a HATE SPEECH BILL to protect WOMEN from frightening TOXIC HOSTILE LYRICS IN BLACK MUSIC.


Until Black Rappers clean up the SEXIST SLURS IN RAP MUSIC I REFUSE TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY DISCUSSION OF RACISM.


You are talking out of both sides of your mouth & Granny ain't having it.


It is the same thing.


It is NOT OK.


Rappers Rappin' "Bitch! Bitch! Bitch!" is a SEXIST SLUR.


It is a SEXIST SLUR.


It is a SEXIST SLUR.


IT IS A SEXIST SLUR.


And that's the clean version.


It gets worse - so much worse

People are Individuals, but people cannot see my Diversity when I step outside my front door. This is me with my Singaporean MUSLIM boyfriend, Mohammad Fawsi, when I was in College.

As a child of the 60s, raised on Motown & attending Fully-Integrated Schools in Pennsylvania & New Jersey, this was completely normal to me.

When I was in College, my family moved overseas where I was completely immersed in other cultures & World Religions other than Christian.

I was the Minority.

It shaped my personal philosophy of Spirituality - my willingness to see & understand someone's view of the World: to be accepting, inclusive & tolerant of people who are different from me.

Below is what I wrote about yet another instance of what it's like for a White WOMAN to find gainful employment in Houston, Texas without being attacked & harassed on the Job.

I put the best-possible spin on it, because I really liked the young man I was working for.

Now let me tell you what it was REALLY LIKE.

I was TERRIFIED I might be RAPED & MURDERED on the Job.

THIS SPECIFIC JOB is the inspiration for my Blog Piece
