Its 2:30am in the morning and Im watching Jerry Springer. A commercial comes on advertising online dating for singles. Now thats not the crazy part. I mean thats pretty normal. But what wasnt ok was the name and the intended audience! "Black People!" Are you kidding me! So I jumped out of my bed angry and mad as hell! How dare black people complain about how racism still exists when they're the ones keeping the existence alive? And its crazy how the advertisers weren't even discrete with it! The commercial said the word "black" 100 times and only had black people in the advertisment, and if that wasn't enough, the name "Black People Meet" put the cherry on top of the cake! Black people really messed up this time. I wonder how many whites are looking at this website as an escapegoat to make a new website entitled "For whites". And as soon as that happens, black people will be crossed and enraged. Im an African American and even I can see the double standard between this racism thing. Its really sickeneing to see my own people yell racsism when they're the main ones being the racist. The website needs to be abolished or redone and retitled. It seems like African Americans feel as though they can do or say anything negative towards or about whites just because of our past. And thats totally wrong! Racism is Racism whether its white to black, vice versa or vice race. I mean c'mon, when are black people gonna meet reality?

So you think you got it bad huh?

I went to sleep complaining about my hair, clothes and school. I woke feeling the same way. I tweeted my morning tweet and noticed that a lot of people were talking about Haiti's. So me being a future journalist and all, I decided to research it. And wow!!! Every complaint that I went to bed and woke up with ceased me! A body here, a body there, a head smashed beneath rocks and rubble and pavement and dust attached to the body's of the surviving! Schools, homes, cathedrals and family's smashed and destroyed. No time to evacuate, or protect themselves from this deadly disaster!

The body count is in the hundred thousands....... and counting........

I decided that my hair looked fine, and there was no need to go clothes shopping and that school would be ok. But its as shame that it took a tragedy as such, for me to notice those things. As a whole, I think that its vital that we start to become more grateful for the things that we do have, as well as our loved ones. If you're a religious person, keep the families of the Haiti's victims in your prayers. Here's a website where you can donate money to Haiti's. or
