                                        How to be less White                            White Fragility Book Review  I used to love reading books, but in the last several years I have not read that much. So my goal for 2021 is to read one book a month. For the month of March the book I chose was White Fragility by Robin Diangelo that I bought at my local Target.     The reason I chose this was because It was on the New York's best sellers list and I wanted to see what people were consuming lately with the high race tensions in America. This book is geared towards White liberals. I am not a woke liberal in fact quite the opposite. So me going into reading this,  I am coming in with a critical mindset from the beginning.        I am coming with the perspective of a Conservative Christian.  The book had some good insights. Very few, but I am a learner and can learn from almost anything or any situation. I agree that there is Systemic Racism. I agree that it is embedded into society.

When Hate Speech is Ok in America

       When Hate Speech is OK in America


         In are current cancel culture, people get fired from saying insensitive words and shows are cut from TV. Kevin Hart was not allowed to host the Oscars because of past insensitive jokes. There is a group that the culture could care less about offending them. That is Christians. 


           If this society is going to have Tolerance as their standard for everything, their should really be tolerance for every one and not a select people.  I will give you an example for something that happened recently that really upset me and what upset me most was the Double standard that our society has. That they do not care about offending certain groups of people. Just recently Netflix their "Christmas Special"  about changing the Biblical Story of Jesus, and saying that he was lived A Queer Lifestyle and that his mother Mary was a Pot smoker.  This tears me apart inside and I am VERY offended!  Now if Netflix turned Muhammad into a Blasphemy  comedy there might be a lot of deaths involved but who cares about the Christians right?  This Comedy makes me angry and Very offended!  


  It is like they tore up the bible into little pieces and threw it in my face. This society is unequal to caring about who gets offended. For me there are no rights, no one cares about our feelings yet we are supposed to play along with this Tolerance game?  Please read my blog post on the fable of Hate Speech. https://www.orchidsierra.com/2019/04/the-fable-of-hate-speech-was-island-far.htmlIt is another example of how this society favors certain people to be tolerate to. You have to be in the In-group to be tolerated and protected.Now a days, mother and father are inappropriate words because parents is the politically correct word. The new proper word for Senior citizens is advanced in age.  Being Single is now called indivually matched. Girl friend and boyfriend are now inappropriate because they are too gender specific. The new word that is correct is lover and partner. The list goes on, society has a problems with the word Senior citizen but has no problem whats so ever of Blaspheming my Lord and Savior and making a mockery out of him?!

I will never succumb to the dirty Newspeak of this  Culture. This new hate speech and tolerance game is not tolerance at all because it excludes people out that it can not tolerate.
