The rules of this site, I have always erased any racial slurs, indecency and profanity – sometimes I miss it but VERY rarely…….. Yesterday, my question to you was “What woman would YOU put on the 10 dollar bill?” – Legitimate question since it is on the docket to change the 10 dollar bill. The picture collage that I included had in equal measure women representing all ends of the political spectrum – from conservative to liberal; gay to straight; black to white; rich to poor . It was a question, I wanted to get all types of responses because I would like to compile a story about how people view women. And quite frankly I was annoyed that it seemed as though the question baffled some of the men.
Well……. I posted the article in our local news letter and one woman became extremely disturbed by it. She even went as far as to refer to me by a racial term from at least two or three generations ago” “coon”. A “coon”. I had to refer to my “urban dictionary” for clarification.
I SUPPOSE this was my welcome to the neighborhood. This is one reason that I ask for civility and decency. The words of the past should be just that, words of the past.
