You Know What Happens When You Assume?

Here is something I need for all who read to this blog to know:

Please don’t assume anything about me due to my ethnicity.  Please.

Don’t assume I want to attend certain events where there is a strong percentage of people of my ethnicity.  Don’t imply nor suggest.   Take the time to get to know me.   That’s all I want.   I guess what I’m saying is just don’t stereotype me.   I hate that!

Something about me.

I grew up in California.

At one point in my life, I grew up well off, violent & chaotic though it was.

I had many friends from different cultures.

I had friends who were sons & daughters of famous celebrities, professional atheletes.

I grew up in an affluent suburb.   Oh how I miss that to this day!

I grew up attending museums at a young age, being exposed to performing arts of all genre’s

I’m intelligent however due to all of the trauma I suffered that got stunted so severely I’m only now trying to repair the damage.

I played piano.

I listen classical music & nothing else.

I hate rap, hip hop.

I’ve traveled outside the U.S.  twice.

I like other colors not just black 🙂

So I guess the point that I’m trying to make, the same point I made at the beginning of this blog is just LOOK beyond the skin color please!

I don’t like small minded folks.   I find them boring as well as irritating.

Look to the character people, look to the character.

Me: I grew up in an extremely abusive & disadvantaged family environment were both parents were really immature & their relationship messy! I was abducted by my Father at age 8 abused physically, mentally, degraded by his 2nd Wife, and I didn't see my Mother again until 4 years later, I had to risk my neck + my life to run off to seek help with the local police & this was way before there was any such laws on the books for child abuse. Think on that awhile. Had learning disabilities all throughout school by the time I graduated I learned nothing, was prepared for nothing out in the World. Think on that. Joined the United States Army right out of High School only reason I did join was that at the time there was an Army recruiter right on the High School campus & he took an interest in me. So I joined. I was really in over my head. But what else could I do? I lived with a single Mom who was emotionally unstable & I had ZERO support from anyone including the school staff + administrators. The military was hard & degrading to me as a woman but I got out with an honorable discharge. More about me: A series of dead end jobs, my mind was totally a mess after I got out of the Army, still had no support not even from the Veterans admin. My journey has been a total nightmare of: trying to find out about myself, learning about myself, how to live as an adult, all with no help. Now after long , and intensive filled journey I'm trying to get back on track with my life I want to go to school with the hope of one day attending University. I don't wish my journey on anyone. No one gave me guidance: as a child as a teen as a young adult I was all on my own! and it was real lonely , isolating, extremely frightening. Family? don't really have any. Now remember everyone I'm African American & I receive little to no respect I don't even warrant a speeding car that will slow down.
