    and, oddly enough, while I understand racists since I know so many -- I can't comprehend the lack of awareness on video or audio.  Deeply disturbing ignorance.

      and like I have often said, since my parents..if I even hear a whiff of racism, that person is out of my life.

      I got lucky as my parents advocated for civil rights but not so with some of their relatives and even some friends of theirs. We found out their friends were people they tried to help, enlighten and reach out to.. I found that out after they died.

      So I started saying Life is too short to tolerate haters in my life and in my circle and in my world. I understand those who cannot or do not want to do that but I had to.  I am stronger emotionally and physically and it is better for my health.
