That One Beautiful Drop

This is just a refreshing way to look at “That One Drop Rule” here in America in 2019.

According to author F James Davis book, ’Who is Black? One Nation’s Definition’, just one drop of ”Black blood” seals the deal on one’s ancestors origins, no matter what else may be in an individual’s mix.

This isn’t a ”new phenomenon” for me, but it is for some Americans who may have opinions on what may or may not constitute an individual’s race. It’s actually hilarious that some people are constantly questioning the lineages of individuals here in America where there are multiple people who identify as one with ”Black blood”. And it is in my opinion, that some Anglo-Americans should check to see just what they have in their lineage. After all, we are in a land (America ) with individuals who can attest to having multiple bloodlines but will ultimately identify as a Black person. I honestly lament this for children of Anglo-Saxon folk with parents not born in America.

History is a beautiful thing if you take time to research and educate oneself, ain’t it?

Stamina and kindness will always be necessary when providing healthcare services in any capacity. So, until the dream manifest, I will continue to petition righteously all year! Who am I? A person who has just enough sense to Praise The One ☝🏾 Who Created me. Do you know HIM? Who do you serve? I Serve A RISEN SAVIOR. A person who doesn’t always get “IT” right. A person who is constantly seeking the truth while living in peaceful abundance while LOVING OUR LORD. A person with a sense of humor who absolutely have to find laughter in just about any situation or occasion. A person with a passion for reading and blogging, who is constantly learning new things. You can find me on social media @kibmelanin. That’s where you can find my Twitter and Instagram profiles where I post some of life’s (sometimes) daily news or blogs with an opinionated love for cultural perspectives. My life is basically focusing on kindness, and boldly walking by faith while cultivating love. I ‘m constantly developing into being a better person than the previous day. Please remember tomorrow isn’t promised to any of us so be full of love and in all ways, BE KIND. #KIBMELANIN #wearyourword #AWalkByFaith #Recompense #itsasocialconnect #SCBP #PRAY #LOVE #FAITH #HOPE #PRAYERisneeded @KIBMELANIN #TWITTER #INSTAGRAM #FACEBOOK
