Fred the Cat is Back with Questions
I was gonna take a blog break, but I just had to speak up this week.
Okay, full disclosure, I am black and I am white. Having said that, I have a question. Are you people going forward or backward?
I heard a black athlete say this week that it was okay for a black man to call a black woman a “bitch”, but it was wrong for a white man to call a black woman the same thing. He also said it was okay for a black man to call another black man the “N” word, but it wasn’t okay for a white man to use that same term.
Then I heard that Jessie Jackson asked Obama if he was acting too white. Remember when someone asked if Obama was black enough?
Finally there is the travesty that is going on in Jena, La. Black kids in jail for fighting with white kids. Nooses hanging from trees? Marches in the streets once again over racial discrimination?
I thought you people, black and white, were making progress and learning to live, work and have fun together. Judging by what you guys are doing, it would seem amazing that I can live contently with my black self and my white self. You see, on the inside I’m one cat, neither black nor white.
Have a nice weekend and be sweet to yourself and one another
Fred the Cat (the cat who loves you guys)
