Are you racist?
Most of us feel we can answer this question with certainty, but a online test may tell you otherwise.
Harvard University created a “race preference” test with their non-profit, Project Implicit.

Katie Makkai- Pretty
I think this generation has their work cut out for them. We need to figure out how to appreciate aesthetics and physical beauty, while not having it define us. As Katie beautifully points out, when we start allowing our self-worth to be defined by our outward appearance (or teach that to our children, male or female) the positive aspects of beauty completely vanish.
I believe the more we teach our children, and personally embrace the differences beauty … Keep Reading!!!
Allowing infants to stay close to their mothers, by their side at work, is one of the key components to the happy and well-rounded staff at Henna Preschool in Huntington, South Africa.

In the end, I sat down with Samuel and had a talk with him about why he wanted … Keep Reading!!!
The boys and I got home from the beach and there were a couple of packages waiting for us. I opened one up and to my surprise I saw this:
Those are shrimp… I think.
Someone sent us live sea creatures we were not expecting.
The package was addressed to “Brian Grumet”, but when I spoke to him at work, he had no idea from where or whom they came. “Just flush them,” said the man … Keep Reading!!!

Someone in my building was getting evicted and he refused to leave and threatened to jump off his balcony. The Sheriffs were even there to physically evict him. Somehow his tactic worked because he is back in his apartment tonight. So now I’m thinking instead of paying rent every month I’ll just threaten to jump off our air-conditioning unit (since we don’t have a balcony).
