Black People & People Of Color. Why?

when i was a child, the majority of my white friends *hated* people of color. an indescribable, deeply-seeded, hate. my mom was absolutely racist and (i think) the rest of her immediate family was, too. i recall that my mom told me her dad (my grandpa) was once the grand wizard to the local kkk. i say this with neither pride or reverence.)

to this day, i don’t get why the color of someone’s skin initiates such hatred and/or violence by white folk. what could possibly be the predominant trigger. first psychologically? but why/what? ingrained pre-conceived notions?

looney tunes was very racist with some characters/situations and every child i knew were glued to the tv to watch bugs bunny, etc…so were most shows, until “good times” and “sanford & son” hit the waves. by local black credence, i was not allowed to call them between 1 and 2pm on sundays, because that was when “soul train” was on.

when kevin rotary dialed me (or anybody black my mom recognized), she’d shout out the door “one of your little friends is on the phone.) when my white friends called, she’d *always* call them by their name. did she not remember their names? would saying their names summon a demon?

anyway, hanging out with my black friends for much of my young life, showed me so much. i got lucky.

i was called “n-word lover”, by white people,for most of my young life. although i had no fear, fast wit, and was a tall for my age…i coulda’ raged out on them, but one of my (black) friends told me to ignore it…don’t respond…be the bigger man. because of his advice, and as much as i could, i felt a piece of his struggle for a moment. he goes through life like that (and worse) than i could ever fully empathize with.

i know it’s 2019 (as i write this) and that very little has changed on the racist rage, violence, and wrongful murder nightmares. i just thought it would all get better. do things really have to get that bad before it gets better? seems like it’s been plain long enough.

Seeking Attorney About Suing FedEx

the incompetence and negligence of fedex is palpable and continuous. this week’s fiasco has potentially caused me serious damage. they picked up a pre-paid envelope from my home on monday (12/24/18) and have, it appears, lost it. the envelope contained all of my personal/private financial info, per request of bank of america (boa).

when i called fedex to inquire, they sent me to 3 different people to discuss. the last person said that boa would have to file the claim because they initiated the pre-paid label. it took 34 minutes on the phone to find out that there’s nothing they can do. in the meantime, someone has all of my private financial info.

my first (rhetorical) question is: what does fedex do? the answer? they pickup/ship/deliver packages. it’s not like they also do tune-ups and deliver pizzas. they just do this one thing…and they’ve been doing it long enough to have it down to a science. i thought.

i normally ship ups or usps only, but was guided by boa to use fedex for this one purpose. in the decades of using ups/usps, i can’t recall anything ever being lost. getting fedex deliveries (and now a self-shipment) has been one nightmare after another.

i just finished informing boa about the fedex fuckup in hopes that they don’t start foreclosure on my home. the purpose of the fedex shipment was to give them requested paperwork and signatures to stop foreclosure proceedings.

my stomach is in knots and the headache this gave me made me have to lie down for a few hours. now i live in fear of identity theft, as well as a looming foreclosure. i haven’t done any work all day because of both trying to deal with fedex, find my package, alert the credit agencies, and crippling stress and anxiety.

i’ve sent emails to several attorneys i found online and am awaiting their reply.

as an only child of a single, lazy parent, i was forced to learn the skills of life. i cooked, cleaned, etc. (and am the better for it). “life skills” classes are desperately needed in our kids’ education.

Time To End My Relationship With Amazon.com?

i felt left with no other choice but to write to jeff bezos himself. below is my email to him. i hope he sees it and still gives a damn.

(sorry, i spelled “ambivalent” wrong in the email 🙁

[UPDATE 8/30/2018] issues still exist. now amazon’s “executive customer service” has obviously grown numb to my recent (yet new) complaints. in the decades with them, i have rarely contacted them with an issue. when it rains, it proverbially pours i guess. am pricing all sites (walmart, petco, etc.) for products i regularly buy, as it seems i’ll be closing my amazon account shortly. this makes me sad. they used to be full of win and awesome and now that they rule the retail market, they stopped giving a shit it seems. they’ve lost control of the beast.

Amazon Delivery Drivers Are Idiots

look at where he/she delivered my package in comparison to the other pic. i do NOT like their “uber” style delivery service. unprofessional idiots, thus far.

[update: 8/29/2018] they continue to give me problems. leaving packages in wrong area and now they’re LOSING my orders for delivery! i’ve contacted them, but they just don’t seem to give a crap now that i’ve complained numerous times about different issues.

[update: 8/30/2018] last package was a day late. new orders are saying 5 days to ship (from amazon, not 3rd party seller). ordering today misses the holiday, so wtf? they continue to breach our prime membership contract on 2-day delivery.

NC Gun Law Needs To Change!

i’ve been a gun owner for over 20 years and this nc law is beyond logical:

“If there is no sign that they are armed, you may not shoot them. Remember, we have no death penalty for larceny or grand theft, regardless of the value of the item. In any situation where an intruder is armed with anything that could kill you, even a screwdriver in his hand, you can shoot to protect your life.”

so…i am woken up in the middle of the night by an intruder, i’m groggy, it’s pitch black inside the house, i’m assuming the intruder didn’t break in to play scrabble with us, i’m not turning on lights to keep the disadvantage equal, the intruder might have a gun/knife…but how do i know? by that time, i’m shot dead.

i think if someone breaks into your home, the burden/responsibility is THEIRS, not yours.

btw…i’m 100% in agreement of extremely strict gun reform laws, harsh background checks, etc., but i’m not for disallowing protecting my home/family.

i would never, ever want to kill another human being, but will if my life depended on it. i’d also make his estate or family pay for my therapy afterwards.

For The NC Real Estate Commission Re: Complaint Against Jill Kuhn and Spencer Properties (With Review)

jill kuhn at spencer properties in raleigh, nc demand that you give them your phone number before they will give you any info on property/land for sale that they are the agent for. they are like used car salesmen…slimy, pathetic, useless while still needed should you require info. i told them my number is private and i only wanted to email, so she continued (for a week) to look up the property information i was requesting, but a week later she refused to give me the info until i gave her my phone number. why not tell me in the beginning that my “email only” request was unacceptable? very unethical. i’ve since reported them and will continue to google every source imaginable to file every complaint possible against them. this was beyond unacceptable…especially since i told her in my FIRST email that my number is private and that my “email is always available to her”.

the listing said there was an “optional/additional 24 acres” available separately. my inquiry was “what is the asking price” and “where is the 24 acres located”. you’d think that would be simple, but no.

i emailed the general email found on their website to complain and they, lacking professionalism, never bothered replying.

i’ve searched for four months now for my dream home. found it and they made me lose it. devastated doesn’t begin to describe my family’s feelings.

i highly recommend that you do NOT do business with these effing idiots.

This should be read from the bottom going to the top. The top is the last message, descending.
