Generic Confusion

When you leave, my blog just fades to grey

News? Check. Politics? Check. Music? Check. Random thoughts about life? Check. Readership? Ummm.... let me get back to you on that. Updated when I feel like I have something to say, and remember to post it.

Taking the blame

Think back to childhood. Ever take the blame for something you didn't do? Did you get blamed for starting a fight? For breaking a vase? For making a mess? You know you did nothing wrong, but you were punished.

Maybe, you've experienced something similar recently. Did you get blamed for the failure of a project at work, when you did nothing wrong?

Feels terrible, doesn't it?

Remember that feeling the next time someone talks about reparations for slavery.

And to rub salt in the wound, think about your own slave ancestors. We're all descended from slaves. Let's face it, it's unavoidable; slavery was such a part of human society, at least until some dead white Christians started thinking it was a bad thing 200 or so years ago.
