First, I read Blunoz's post about the despicable Westboro Baptist Church...the loonies who condemn the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, & queer/questioning) community and protest funerals of fallen military. First off, we won't get started on the protests of the LGBTQ community...that would take me too long to rant about (ahhhhh, I miss my old activist days). Second...picketing funerals? Really? I'm not sure how a "church" can justify doing these abhorrent things during the most painful times in peoples' lives. I can't even begin to imagine what those families/loved ones feel when seeing these a-holes.
Second, I get an email from Melis about a post from Cop Mama about your personal information splattered on the web on Spokeo. I've always been diligent about Googling myself and my fam...but this site was strange since it listed your family members, HOBBIES, etc. Apparently, should be in the CIA since my identity has managed to go undetected for all these years in all the states I've lived in. My mom, sister, brother (in-law), hubs, & late father are all listed on the site.
But, thanks to that site, I've found out that I've added another layer to my diversity work. Although I have always championed for equality across various communities, I'm apparently a biracial woman (half white & half African-American) whose main focus is on the Asian American community.
I've been living a lie my entire life...
