PREJUDICE & STEROTYPES
I was just listening to the radio during my lunch. I heard it reported that there is something called "Black Dog Syndrome". More commonly known as BDS (this is said tongue in cheek), is the trend of humans to not adopt black dogs because they are stereotyped as mean, evil, and (seriously, this was also mentioned in the report) people don't like them because they don't photograph well with their children. Black dogs are 75% more likely to be euthanized in animal shelters than other-colored dogs. (No, I didn't check this out on Snopes)
Might seem silly at first, but on second thought, how sad that man's tendancy toward prejudice and stereotyping occurs so commonly and readily? Think about it.
I am crazy in love with my Lord. I want to know Him more, be with Him, understand Him, laugh with Him, rest in Him, be part of His plans, love His Bride, care about His lost sheep like He does, live for Him.
I am totally my daughter's mom. I more than love her...I like her and the person she is. There is noone on this earth that I like to spend time with more than her.
I couldn't love my Family and Friends more. They are awesome. I am blessed...I am blessed!
I am a people watcher. I like to know what people think about things. I like to talk to people I don't know..alot. Which scares some people. But I am really not dangerous. I think I just like people in general. God tends to draw me to hurting people. I don't like when people feel left out.
April Fool's Day is my High Holiday. I love pratical jokes...even those aimed at me. I love to laugh and have been known to laugh so hard I couldn't see or breathe. I don't like sarcastic humor. I don't like hurtful humor.
The only other important thing to know about me is that I have a perfect dog and two cats who are not.
