Rainbow Love

The title was given due to the fact that there are many forms of cross love out in the world. My version stems from the fact that African-American families are split into interracial relationships. I’m loving it. However, the core AA family is shrinking. People are not compromising and making things work. African-American singles in the ATL are very successful and want more. I’m aware that my own personal issues while observing African-American relationships with surrounding individuals makes me believe that our own race is not enough for several people. People are jumping ship into Rainbow Love.

There are approximately five African-American women to every one man in the ATL. There are plenty of women to choose from to a man’s point of view. What flavor? (of a woman) What color? What style? What age? How successful?

Rainbow Love crosses genders for like-minded people as well. The term lends itself to that, especially in Hot Atlanta but my point of view and reference did not start there.

I was taught morals in the home. I will not deviate from them to my benefit or detriment. They keep me grounded, and I’m thankful in the age called “Rainbow Love.”

Be well, safe and blessed.

Okay. Let’s talk about men for a minute.

I LOVE men. Men can be great. Females and Males think differently. I’ll break this down even further.

Relationships in your 40’s. Let me break this down even more.

African-American relationships in your 40s. Let me break this down even more.

Non-committal African America relationships in your 40s. ((sign)) Not pretty.

I’m not sure if it’s a lost cause or what. African-American men and women have the hardest time in the 21st century. Black men don’t seem to want black women. Many women are feeling the lack of love from their own race and thinking colorblind as an option.

I just want to meet the right person for me. It’s been a real challenge.

I’m in a relationship with a man who can’t commit. He’s in his 40s, sad but true: college educated with more degrees than me, raised a great kid. I’m at a loss now. He says that I’m pushing too hard. Hmmm, we’ve known each other for at least 15 years. Really, am I pushing too hard?

Obviously, there is more than I’m saying on my blog. What I really would like to know is this: what happened to African-American relationships? Why did single-parenting take over? African-American families are divided.

I’m sad that I’m unable to meet a successful man as a woman with “no kids,” has material wealth and I’m thankful for my health. I’ve still been unable to meet my match. It’s a shame.

Women are really suffering, especially African-American women in the black mecca called Atlanta. Most women out here feel the pinch. It’s a shame.

Reflections on Bullying Short Film

In the Fall 2013, I directed a student film with middle school students. We finally finished post production of it and I wanted to share it. Since it’s middle school students, the names have been abbreviated. We may send it to student festivals to check out the responses. Thanks for the support for my drama students.

For the most part, I don’t write about my family. However, a family member that you love will make you respond in a way that forces you to explain, write, complain, share, celebrate, etc. Today, my dad really forced me to think about how I want deal with my family in the future.

Everyone goes through issues with family. In this case, my parents are in their 70s and it’s time to help them (as best that I can without getting hurt). However, that’s with anyone.

I’m not sure how my dad got into financial trouble but he did. My parents were always great with money but my dad had a lot of financial trouble and asked me many times to help him in very large amounts of money to the point of wiping me out.

I helped him. I was baffled, surprised, confused, and didn’t know what was going on in that house that my parents have lived in for the past 25 years.

I’m not sure if he will be able to repay me the money. I’m upset with him, that’s very clear. Now, I just don’t want to see him or my mother for a while. I just need them to leave me alone. The secrets alone are enough to get on a person’s nerves. I was asked not to share that he had to “borrow” money from me to my mother.

Needless to say, I’m thinking about talking with a counselor just so that I don’t share this information with the world like I’m doing now. lol It’s private information and I may take down this post in the future. Right now, I just needed to share some things about my family. The Christian father who teaches Sunday School took a few thousand dollars and mentioned that he would throw me a hundred to help me out if I needed it and “pray” for me.

For someone who helped so many people, I’m afraid that helping his daughter was hurting her financially. I’m not sure where this is going. I believe in prayer although I can cuss like a sailor if provoked. I’ve learned to be a strong girl (like most black women) through my mother. Mom will need two hip replacement surgeries as well. I see a lot of family issues on the horizon. I’m not sure if it will get any better.

If you believe in prayer, please pray for me. Thanks.
