    *It’s hard no matter what. How do you tell your children, without hurting their feelings, that a part of the world hates them just because of their skin color?*

    I’m sure I’m gonna get a few disappointing remarks here.
    Could we first at least agree on that we All are the same race, the “HUMAN” race?
    We MUST start calling them “Colorists” or is it too soft???

    You should struggle when the kids ask you why another woman comes out your bedroom every morning

    Does anyone know if Wanda ever had a relationship with a “Womine” that looks like her as in skin tone?. Wanda,, your children are WHITE as in your Wife. Adopt a Black little boy and have the conversation with him. Wanda tequila that night gave you the courage to go out but you’re not saying anything .You can’t have that conversation with Lucus your son because he’s WHITE. 😳
    Considered safe.

    Saw you have the book “White Teeth” on the desk. I read that book a decade ago and my impression is that it is a tale of the unnatural attraction two screwed up people have for each other.

    He said Harvard sends recruitment letters to African-American, Native American and Hispanic high schoolers with mid-range SAT scores, around 1100 on math and verbal combined out of a possible 1600, CNN reported.
    Asian-Americans only receive a recruitment letter if they score at least 250 points higher — 1350 for women, and 1380 for men.

    How could that be a struggle unless she was trying to hide the truth because her partner is white. If you stand by and allow it your apart of the problem.

    Black people won’t tell you that but in reality they support LGBTQ only because it weakens bonds between white population.

    Wanda you are a racist. You go on the Ellen show saying “ white people”. How is that different from racist comments about another racist. You are a racist. Change yourself before you criticize others.
