10. Can't we all just get along!! LOL !!

I don't understand why everyone is so surprised!! All my life I have seen this type of behavior in Media, School, places of Business. I remember when Rush Limbaugh was trying to buy into the NFL. Most of the time when you find racism, sexism is close at hand. The more things Change the more those types of things will stand out!! Some people are just listening for the First time!!! Imagine feeling this kind of Ignorance all your life! As a woman I grew up with stupid stereotypes about women, then as a woman of color I had to grow up with another set of stereotypes to not fall prey to also. I and my sisters would stand in the mirror and tell ourselves that you are Important, You are Beautiful, You are Smart, You are Worth having a Life!! We may not be rich but we still all have each other and we are all close and make sure we empower our daughters with Love, Integrity, and their voice to be heard.
