I get so angry I want to cry.  Maybe I just personalize things to much?  Maybe I'm to sensitive?  But being black in America is a struggle that I'm tired of fighting.  It's like being bullied and reaching the point were you aren't going to take it anymore. I don't want to fight anymore, but I can't change people just myself.  I wanted to see the movie "Top Five."  It isn't playing in the area I live.  I've noticed that none of the black films I have wanted to see have been played in the theatre I like to frequent.  However, across town on the "south side" the modern segregation of today the movie is playing all day long.  Is that marketing or a way of keeping people segregated? It saddens my heart to tears.  I just want to live without being judge by the color of my skin.  The misconception of what ignorant people conceive.  It's hard enough that we as people are judge daily, and that we have enough struggles in life on its own, that the extra is the last thing on that camels back.  In my world people would be accepted for who they are; nice, mean, kind, single, married, outgoing, loud, rich or poor whatever the case may be.  No one is perfect and people seem to forget that everyone of us is unique and made in the image of God.  If God can accept us in all his glory and brilliance, and as sinful as we are, why can't we accept each other?  Just venting.....

Do Not Pass Judgment on One Another

14 As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions. One person believes he may eat anything, while the weak person eats only vegetables. Let not the one who eats despise the one who abstains, and let not the one who abstains pass judgment on the one who eats, for God has welcomed him.Who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another? It is before his own master that he stands or falls. And he will be upheld, for the Lord is able to make him stand.

Romans 14:1-4
