my response to the responses
First of all, Id like to give the commenter of the topic of the last post a handshake of congratulations for being the first person Ive called out to respond back with a name an actual blog address.
I have great respect for you for doing so.
This was her response in the case you guys missed it.
In regards to your response, theres a lot that Id like to say in response, but I think the topic is so grand that we could dedicate an entire blog to the issue, nevermind a single post.
I want to thank everyone who responded to the post, whether you spoke in my favor or against me. I took into consideration every comment that went up and took some time to really think about it and then reassess my post and what I said.
I admit I may have been slightly a tad too harsh and may have overlooked a few aspects...and I do apologize. I was dragged out of bed 6 hours too early and was already grouchy, I was also already in a bad mood because someone owed me money...and I think that comment totally just set me off. Im not finding excuses or trying to justify my actions...Im simply letting you understand my condition at that moment...that may have caused a hasty response...which in retrospect may have been a bit heavy handed...but not entirely.
I didnt consider it a hater comment, but I did consider the comment to be slightly ignorant. Like I said, for you to bring up that comment must have meant you somehow thought of it yourself. I understand you were giving me perspective, but why didnt you give me a perspective that had me potentially looking like a weirdo, or a hipster, or a loser...or something that doesnt have a race or anything of a socially discriminating controversial nature? Maybe it was just a bad example that you decided to use.
There were a lot of points that I wanted to make in this post, but I wasnt at home when I received your comment regarding my response. Anything that I planned to say has already been mentioned in the comments from other readers, and anything you may have potentially said back in response was said for you from other comments as well.
But in response to your comment about me feeling insecure about your claim and having to msg people on my blackberry, it has nothing to do with insecurity. Whenever anyone makes a claim about me, when I get into arguments with certain people, or whatever, I always ask for a second opinion.
Although Im quit confident, that Im not trying to be any particular race/ skin color, I always ask because my opinion about myself will always be bias. I need another perspective to verify in case there must be something I missed when processing a comment, issue or situation.
Like when I have girlfriend problems, I always ask someone, because there is always something that you may have missed.
I wont continue with the topic because I think whatever else you and I may have to say about this topic will be repetitive based on the comments left by the other readers.
As much as the comments gave me perspective on what I may have miscalculated in my post, I hope you can take away something as well.
At the end of the day, we're all human. I didnt believe you had a malicious intent, but I was offended nonetheless.
But thank you again for responding, clarifying and identifying yourself.
I have mad respect for you for doing that and not hiding behind an 'anonymous' label.
Another reason why I didnt want to continue pursuing this topic too intensely is because once I blog, Ive basically vented and my feelings and emotions pass over and Im good again. There are so many things that go on in a day for me that I cant afford to spend that much time being mentally distracted.
I havent really been home today, so for the people still waiting for the pictures from Ashley's bday, Ill try to post them tomorrow at some point. I have to take my mom shopping, again...so I might not be blogging it til later at night.
Goodnight...im mad tired, Ive only had 5 hours of sleep combined within the last 2 days...and I gotta wake up pretty early tmr...and its already 532am...fuckin a.
