Imagine... a movement inspired by the arts to open the eyes of Americans to the plight of their own people. Imagine, through art, music and poetry, we are shining a much needed light on our own crisis: HOMELESSNESS
Art4TheHomeless was once a blog called Colors of Ink with Blogcharm, which closed down. Nutang, became the new home of Colors of Ink and was renamed Art4TheHomeless, by a really good friend, Samantha Medd. She is now the Co-Founder of Art4TH.
Now Art4TH is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization that unites artists of all venues to promote homeless awareness in the US.
Art4TH does this through the Art4TH Webzine, a monthly online magazine that features a musician whose music plays throughout the website, a feature artist, and a feature writer while also featuring a homeless relief organization. All artists featured retain their copyrights and all of it is free. If you would like to be a featured artist, musician, or writer contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

White America v. Black America
Wednesday. 3.25.09 6:35 pm
I was just watching the news about how White America is affected differently than Black America.
I am white, I can't help the color I am born with, but what is the point of being divided? It's as if Black America and White America are two different countries!
BET, Black Entertainment Television, was promoting The Black Vote for Obama. I voted for Obama, but they made it seem like every black person HAD to vote for Obama. I have some black friends who didn't vote for Obama.
Do you see my point here? My point is that we are racially divided and we are going to stay that way unless "Black Leaders" and "White Leaders" come together and help one another.
I am not sure of the exact percentages but there are more black Americans in jail, dropping out of school, in poverty, etc.
IF you look at the stats, yes, there are more black people experiencing the hardships, but what people forget is that black people are PEOPLE. They are HUMANS no better than whites, Hispanics, etc. We are ALL human and no one is better than anyone because of skin color.
There is enough to worry about like RUSSIA hanging out with CUBA and IRAN..
There will be NO PEOPLE if we let petty things like SKIN COLOR and THE WHITE MAN ENSLAVED THE BLACK MAN 200 years ago!
What people forget is that Africans enslaved their own people and THERE ARE WHITE SLAVES out there.
White America v. Black America needs to quit and unite along with Hispanic America, and everyone else who are citizens!
Do you hear things about Black Germany v. White Germany or Black England v. White England?
It's only in America and if we continue as a people to conquer one another then we will fall. If the stomach digested the intestines you would die.
So let's stand up and help one another. It's not a black thing. It's not a white thing. It's an American problem and we have to eliminate it.
Do you know what made me super angry this past summer? Every stiggin' person walking up to me, flat out assuming I am voting for Obama/vehemently against McCain. I thought I was in a college town full of unprejudiced, open-minded people.... No. "sign our petition for nader to be on the ballot... don't like nader? well it will help take vote from mccain..."
And then there was Cynthia McKenney, supporting reparations. How are we supposed to get past this craziness and work together if here she is running for president and wanting reparations. Ugh!
Maybe other countries don't have the as open Black/White "dialogue", because they weren't as entrenched in slavery? From what I understand, Black people are more or less looked down upon where ever you are, and even amongst ourselves there is "well I'm lighter/darker/better/worse" craziness. Then again we need to worry about our own country, and not everyone else...

This is getting out of hand.

I wish your voice could reach the majority of people out there.
Every day I hear at least one Caucasian female get called, "White girl." It's happened to me, it's happened to my friends.
If I yelled, "Hey black girl," someone would tell me off.
THAT is what we're facing, these days.

That's too bad. I didn't even BARELY read it that way. x.x It's unusual, how some people don't even give others the chance to explain.

I guess I could see getting upset over that, but surely that's not so bad as to terminate a friendship?
