Just because you married a black man doesn't mean that you need to singlehandedly take on the black cause.
Not everything a white person says to a black person is racist. Quit interpreting everything we say as a slight on you or your family. It makes us very unwilling to talk to you if everything we say is analysed for ill intent.
Believe us when we say that we genuinely like your husband and your gorgeous kids. We are not saying that they are gorgeous "for blacks". They are just gorgeous, period.
If you could just get out from under that enormous chip on your shoulder, you would be so much happier.
If you can't be a Good Example, then you'll just have to be a Horrible Warning
*ugh* all i wanted was funding at the univ for the upcoming year. i worked my tail off last year, being honored on the dean's list and everything. and yet, bc i have a job that i need in order to support myself, the freaking univ is going to hold that against me and NOT give me funding?!?! i hate that...i wanted to quit this stupid (but well paying) job and now i cant because the grad committee has decided that i dont need the funding since i already have a job. HELLO!!?!?!? give me the funding and I would quit! besides, i want the experience of being a TA or an RA! so why cant i get it and why am i working my ass off????

(ok rant over.)

You are the most self-centered and selfish person that I know. You never think of anyone but yourself, and I am tired of it. No, we are not friends, and no, I am not driving 9 hours for the birth of your child. I could care less. You think you have it so bad, and in reality you have it better than anyone that I know. Quit nitpicking my house. Yes, I know that it is not as nice as your quarter-of-a-million dollar house, but it is still nice, and I have worked my butt off to get it and to make it look nice. I am mad at you for being so horrible, but I am even madder at myself for putting up with you for so long. I am glad you are gone!!!
you are so selfish. your priorities are ****ed up too. the gap vs. rent? decisions, decisions. pottery barn vs. walmart on a college student's budget? what's a girl to do. In Touch, People, and Entertainment Weekly vs. toilet paper.....i guess you can wipe your ass with the pages after you're finished reading the latest mary kate gossip.
stop being so figgin lazy. im not running a chauffeur service. if you get out of the car, close the door behind you.
don't honk at me when you do something wrong on the road. slap yourself or something. i should have flipped you off, you assclown.

Note to those with children: I don't want to be bothered with your brats. That means stop letting them run all over everywhere, running into other people with carts, screaming at the top of their lungs at the mall. I am childless for a reason: I do not want to be bothered with children right now. So keep them out of my path. Your kids, your problem.
The name of the state is Missouri, not Missour-rah.
Drives me nuts when people say "at my work" as opposed to "where I work" or "at my job."
Leave the people in the Middle East alone. They've been fighting amongst themselves for years. Let them continue to do so.
Democracy is not in the best interest of everyone! I'm not a Communist, but I support the right of nations to employ Communist philosophies as they see fit without the big cocky high-and-mighty United States stepping in and telling them that what they're doing is wrong.

To my mother in law..
Listen up *****, I am not catholic, I will never be catholic..This was know 15 years ago and you would think by now it would of sunk in.
No, you still feel the need to mention it with some catty remarks every single time we come there to see you.
Then you wonder why I don't want to come? Gee, it's such a blast driving 8 hours in a car with two kids and a dog just to come and hear your
nasty remarks about Jews.
Suppodely you are a good christian.. hmmmm.
Delete me please. What I considered a nice honest place to find good info has now become one big advertisement.
Have a great day!
I give up on you! I've tried to help you in everyway I know how, and nothing I can do helps. If you want to spend the $$$ your husband works very hard for to support your family on clothes and CD's instead of rent and bills, so be it. If you want to spend the little $$$ that you make on drugs and booze while your children go without dinner, thats your choice. If you want to live in a house that is so dirty I wouldn't leave my dog with you, go for it.
I've watched your kids so you could work, lent you $$$ to pull off your joke of a wedding, cleaned your house when you were too "tired" to do it, supported you when no one else would, and I've never gotten anything in return, not even a thank-you. So when your husband walks out on you, and CAS shows up to take your children, I will not be the shoulder you cry on.
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.
Why do you treat your single volunteers differently from your married ones?
Why do I have to attend all of the leaders meetings, all of the overnight activities, and all of the regular and long weekend activities, too? Why do you tell me that I "need to make it a *priority* to be there", when you let the people with husbands and wives off the hook, because they have "families".
News flash: Just because I am not married, doesn't mean that I don't have a family, too. Or, that my non-family-related need for down time isn't just as important as a someone else's family-related need for a break.
When I tell you that I have attended every special event and regularly scheduled night this year, and I have been working for the past twelve days in a row, and I AM WORN OUT AND TIRED and am going to have a hard time making it to the meeting you scheduled for a Sunday afternoon - my only day off... Why do you say, "Well, you seem to thrive on that kind of schedule anyway.", smile, and walk away?
Also, why are you making my roommate feel the same way? She's going to quit if you press her further - shame on you!
Don't God-guilt me into anything - it's your problem, God is no longer involved; you kicked Him out of the situation long ago. It's just you, your overworked volunteers, and your inability to empathise with and listen to others.
Person A: I'm sure, deep down you are a good person. Deep, deep deeeep down. Or something. All things considered, though...I think the world would truly be a nicer, healthier place if you woke up mute tomorrow. And never spoke a word again.
Person B: I don't care. Quit reading over my shoulder. Quit touching my hair and jewelry. Buy a hearing aid. Reset your damn watch.
-I am a light-skinned black woman and I am VERY SHY and a virgin (read: I am not a snob or snooty, and I am not a slut). Give yourself a chance to know me before you pass judgement.
-Please refer to me as BLACK not African American. I haven't the slightest clue what country in Africa my very distant ancestors are from; it is hypocritical of me to call myself AA. My best friend is from Nigeria; she truly is AA because she knows both cultures.
-Please stop this bull about all black people being mixed. A mixed person is a person who has one parent of one race and the other parent of a different race. Period.
-To my SIL: You are the most low-down and evil person I know. You marry my brother knowing he had kids from a previous relationship and then treat them like crap; making them cook and take care of the two you had with my brother while you lay in the bed all evening. Be a wife to my brother and stop treating him as a slave; he is your husband. You have your two light-skinned babies, we all know that's all you wanted from my brother and you don't even take of them
-Yes I have a college degree, in mathematics to be exact. Yes, I am attending graduate school for my master's. However contrary to popular belief I do not think I know everything and I do respect my elders.
-Yes, my parents paid for my college education and I am so grateful and thankful. My family is not rich; they just didn't want huge loans to pay off later. I stayed at home and drove the old family car.
-To adults over 30: Every 20-something is NOT a selfish, party-going, irresponsible, and rude person. Please don't treat us all as such.
-To parents of school aged children: Your child is failing my class because he/she sits in class and doesn't work, doesn't participate, and doesn't complete homework. Please stop calling me asking if I can give your child extra credit or change your child's previous report card grade. Instead of calling me why don't you make sure your child is doing their homework and studying for the quizzes and tests.
-To the other black teachers at my school: Just because I am a black teacher doesn't mean I should only mentor other black kids and give them special incentives to help them pass. They need to turn in work and follow rules and procedures like everyone else.
-Yes I attended The University of Texas and no I don't think I am more than you. HOOK' EM!!
-To my co-workers: I understand that obtaining a master's degree will not increase my salary much; I want to study for a master's degree to make me a better teacher. Please don't belittle me and tell that getting a master's degree is a waste of time and not worth it.
-To my co-workers: When I wear casual suit to work please don't as me why I am dressed up. I treat my job as a profession; if you don't that is not my problem.
-Teaching is a profession. Everyone cannot do it. Society needs to respect teachers as a whole.
-I eat meat and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are grown with all kinds of fertilizers, pesticides, and etc. So get off your soap box vegetarians; your are no healthier than those who eat meat. Humans are omnivores.
-I shop at Wal-Mart, even buy their clothes. I also own diamnd jewerly. Does boycotting either of these really make you a better person?
-Oh yeah, I was a cheerleader and valedictorian in high school. Shocking; isn't it
When you say you're gonna call, CALL!! When you make plans with me and then don't call to cancel.... that is rude. And don't take me out on a date, tell me to keep a certain day open for another date, then NOT call me to say you can't make it, leaving me to WAIT all day. Don't just blow me off if you're not interested. Just SAY you're not interested so we can both move on. I hate flaky men.... where have all the good men gone? >.<

You are a vile witch. The only reason I have anything to do with you is because I love my grandmother, and once she dies (which will, unfortunately, be too soon) I NEVER WANT TO SEE YOU AGAIN.
The fact that you have never given a $hit about me, and continue to make it clear that I am unwelcome in your presence, while my selfish, spoiled brother is the apple of your eyes only shows what a controlling witch you are. No, you can't control me. And I will continue to be pleasant to you simply because I refuse to stoop to your vile level. But never ask anything of me again. Ever.
The pews never miss a sermon but that doesn't get them one step closer to Heaven.
You made Mom cry. No surprise there, you've been an expert at doing that for years. But you also made Dad cry. He hasn't cried to my knowledge since he saw his sister in the nursing home all those years ago, shrivelled up and half gone. Give yourself a round of applause. You did it. You made Dad cry. Does that make you feel powerful now? Is it worth it?
You should be so proud of yourself right now. Ok, so we didn't immediately fall in love with the idea of you and her having a baby before you were married. Mind you, this didn't have so much to do with the "legitimacy" factor(though what the heck did you expect my parents to do, give you medals? They're old-fashioned. Get over it.) as much as the fact that you were completely dependent on THEM for income and your little(ha! if she's little, then I'm microscopic) lady was completely dependent on HER parents for income and well, if you two had a brain between you, you'd have figured out that that's no way to raise a kid.
I mean, come ON. You have money to see every concert you want and buy a new mp3 player the second your old one goes out of fashion - but you didn't figure out how much a baby would cost? And how much easier it would be to get family assistance if you were, legally, a family?
Oh, but you learned the value of a buck REAL QUICK when Dad promised you a year's free rent if you got married BEFORE the baby was born, instead of waiting a year like you were gonna. You clueless, selfish little turd. It's always easy to spend someone else's money, huh?
And now suddenly, now that the money's gone, and you have to make your own, suddenly Mom and Dad are just the most AWFUL people in the world, and you're an "adult" now and you're too big for your family, too big to call Dad once in a while, too big to send Mom some baby pictures, you're just so amazing, and special, and apparently you're the first boy ever - that's right - BOY, because MEN don't act like this, you're no adult, you're my LITTLE BROTHER AND ALWAYS WILL BE - to have a baby of his own, and turn his back on the ones who raised him, just because they dared to HELP him when he was too useless, too clueless, and too selfish, to get a REAL job and start preparing for his daughter's arrival into the world - because the tips at that part time waiting job were just TOO GOOD to pass up, huh. And you only had to work 3 days a week!
Or was it because Dad was footing the bill still? That you managed to keep a hold on your account at the Bank of Dad just a little longer, so you didn't HAVE To get responsible yet - not really? But you sure got the "It's all ME" attitude down REAL fast, didn't ya. Well, I'd like to know where you bought that attitude, mister, because you sure as hell didn't EARN it.
**** you, little bro. I'm sorry that the first, cutest, sweetest little grandbaby in the family had to be born to your selfish, manipulative, passive-agressive wife and YOU.
