Oil and Water Does Not Mix

Detroit –  My friend downstate had a real awakening when his daughter just walked into the living room and said:
“Dad, cancel my allowance immediately, rent my room out, throw all my clothes out of the window,
take my TV, and stereo, and iPhone, and iPod, and my laptop.
Please take all of my jewelry to the Salvation Army or Cash Converters.
Then sell my new car, take my front door key away from me and throw me out of the house.
Then disown me and never talk to me again.
And don’t forget to write me out of your will and leave my share to my brother. 
Well, she didn’t put it quite like that… she actually said… “Dad, this is my new Islamic boyfriend, Mohammed
Mohammed is dating my daughter

Mohammed is dating my friends daughter!

  1. Today, the Supreme Court halted enforcement of voter discrimination laws, citing “racial progress” seen in the last half-century.

    Reading this post in light of today’s biggest headline gives me a sick feeling in my stomach.

    Millions of Americans experience routine discrimination for the color of their skin or the sound of their name or their religious affiliation–but this is nothing compared to the racism that is built into the system through education inequality, poverty and what amounts very often to segregation.

    This plight of minorities is pretty much out-of-sight-out-of-mind for the privileged majority, until someone’s daughter falls in love.

    Did Mohammed choose to be born in Detroit? The city purged of all (white) wealth and utterly forsaken by the system, comprised mostly of people who are here only because their ancestors suffered the egregious misfortune of being born slaves? Did this friend consider Mohammed as a fellow human being? Did he consider how enriching it (always) is to extend oneself in understanding a different religion, background or culture?

    Nope. That is apparently way too much to ask of a white American male.

    Thank God for this young woman, who represents the reason I hope for a better future in this war-torn bigoted world.

    As for the Supreme Court, isn’t it obvious that “racial progress” is still a work-in-progress? Look around. This country has a long way to go before we understand the true meaning of tolerance.
