The fear mongering people at the Daily Post’s Word Press came up with the writing prompt for the day of “Connect the dots“.  They also gave the added words to spark our creativity “Scour the news for an entirely uninteresting story. Consider how it connects to your life. Write about that.”

From Mad World News

I personally stumbled across an article about one Walmart employee’s clothing display in North Las Vegas.

The big question from this article results in the question of what makes a display racist?  There are no mannequins actually hanging from the ceiling.

How do you tell what race an article of clothing really is?

If I were to put one of my sweatshirts on display, how would you be able to decide what race is involved?  I am one eighth Native American Indian, fifty percent German, and the rest comes from the great melting pot of America.

What exactly makes an action racist?

  1. Is it the intent of the person completing the action?
  2. How do you come about revealing their true intent?
  3. Is it possible that searching for racism, makes you a racist yourself?
  4. How do we protect the next generation from repeating our own racist ways?

Why does racism still exist today?

Kids are not born thinking in racist ways, they learn it from people that surround them.  Put two toddlers together from different races, as long as they communicate in a way they both can understand they will probably get along fine!  Interacting with older people tends to teach kids how to discriminate against other people / races.  We need to lead by showing the younger generation that people from different races can get along!  Have to stop spreading the disease of racism to the next crop of human beings.

Prompt for the Day: “Connect the Dots”

The prompt for the day given to us by the creative people working with the Daily Post group of Word Press is: “Connect the Dots“.  Added instructions to jump start our meager brains were “Scour the news for an entirely uninteresting story. Consider how it connects to your life. Write about that.”

My mind tends to be slower than most these days.  No clue where it will wander off to today!  Did come across a story from the Political Insider : “Obama Threatens to De-Fund Military Unless Terrorists are RELEASED!“.  Did not vote for the idiot in charge either time!  He continuous to prove the idiocy he showed in the Illinois congress did not improve in the least.

He can’t even decide what religion he is!  Is he a Christian or a Muslim? When he was elected, he attended the United Church of Christ.  Now, he prefers to pray to Allah!  Make up your mind.  His wife keeps sticking her nose into what the children of this country eats for lunch each day.  Know the school lunches stank when I in school, but from what I hear now it is much worse!

For some kids this may be the only decent meal they get for the entire day.  Was lucky enough to get a decent breakfast and supper every single day.  Some children rely on the school to get them fed edible food.  And the president wants our country to pay his wife for starving our kids?  I want to know what drugs the man is on and who his supplier is!

And why would we agree to releasing the terrorist we have in custody?  Is that so they can plan another devastating attack on our soil?  Even he can’t actually believe we are that stupid!  9/11/2001 still seems like yesterday to me. He actually wants to perpetuate the terrorism on our country?
