A Losing Battle?

This post is basically a rant.

I have been away from blogging for so long.

I don't want anything fake in my life -at least, as much as I can help it.  I want to be able to face things head on.

(1) One issue i'm dealing with is entertainment for the kids.  Since we don't have a television, they are not so easily exposed like many kids to the onslaught of horrible messages in tv programs. Programs where they almost always make the black character non-existant or so horribly stupid or silly that all dignity is gone from them.

Nevertheless, I do have my dear dear husband who hasn't a clue about such things and who finds videos for them to watch without regard to how the Blacks are treated.  Granted, he's white so he doesn't even know to look out for these things. And I have no one to blame but myself for marrying such a fellow.

I just have to be more vigilant and teach everyone whenever i can --in a way that they can hear it.

(2) There is so much disunity in the Black Jewish community, i just want to go to sleep! lol.

(3) Family crisis nearly averted, but much glass shattered. Now its time to pick up the pieces and see what's left....
