I'm sorry... I didn't realize we'd gone back in time.

Racism. Homophobia. Bigotry. This is the stuff that's not making headlines because of the pervasiveness of Michael Jackson's perpetual memorial and the myriad of Republican sex scandals. It's alive and well, and sadly not getting better anytime soon.

I mean, is it just me, or have we suddenly stepped back a century or two? Segregated swimming pools? Separate but equal ideologies? Unequal treatment at restaurants, street sidewalks, and pools?! I'm just flabbergasted. There's really no other word or sentiment that's accurate enough. I'm appalled. Outraged. Yet, I continue to hope. I hope this administration shows us some change to back up our belief. I pray that my children never learn of these atrocities on humanity. Again, I urge you to contact the offices of your Senator, your Representative, your Governor, Mayor, President, etc. Let them know we'd like to live in 2009, not 1809.

Blessings to you and yours.

Love and Lyte,

Fire Lyte
