A lot of whites still look down on blacks and other people of color. Racism still exists.

Believe me, when I was a boy during the heyday of Jim Crow, it was so much worse. But there have been a lot of positive changes since that sad time in our nation's history; otherwise, a black man would not have been elected President three years ago. You should remember that during the long struggle against "legal" discrimination against black Americans, there were whites who courageously supported civil rights, despite the persecution they endured. The father of a childhood friend of mine was a civil rights attorney. On more than one occasion his children had to be escorted to school by the local police because of death threats his family had received. He could have chosen a safer path, but he was courageous and chose to do the right thing instead.

I know there are still whites who have racist attitudes, and I'm very sorry about that. But there are also black racists, some of whom are just as cruel and violent as the KKK. What you need to do is to get to know more whites who aren't racially prejudiced against blacks and remember their example to help you feel better with your own negative feelings. Believe me, I personally know what I'm talking about (albeit from a nonracial standpoint). I dare say that most of the white A2K members are not racists.

@wmwcjr,
You know JG, I guess I am priveledged here, in Australia, as far as Racism goes, except here, there is a fear, of "some" cultures and they need for them to be tough, but they pick on poor people walking the City late at night , just because so it's justified

That fear.

Do you fear?

Is that why you don't like white people?

Is that why you stay home alot?

From the short time I have been here, working out personalities is not an easy task:) But, you "always" get nice posts like this, before me, telling you "it's ok"..

I think that is worth it's weight in gold.

Maybe a message from above Smile

I've never heard the word pulmonologist before I read your post. I assume it's a specialist in sleep disorders. I'm really sorry to hear that mate, can only offer the usual platitudes, like going for a walk, having a milky drink, getting blind drunk etc. Hope you get it sorted.

@izzythepush,
Pulmonologists are lung specialists, which has little directly to do with sleep, except possibly when it involves issues of sleep apnea (breathing while sleeping) problems/issues.

@Ragman,
Thank you, I should have looked it up, I was just being lazy. From biology lessons I remember the pulmonery artery, which if I remember rightly, is the only artery to carry unoxygenated blood.

@wmwcjr,
I'm sorry too wmwcjr,

I have a young lady, in Ireland that frequently writes to me, she has the same problem and has not had much success with Doctors either.

She recently entered into a new relationship and is so happy, for some reason it allowed her to sleep well for a couple of nights.

She sometimes writes to me 3 in the morning.

Take care

@JGoldman10,
Why is it that I ask you questions, you don't answer in-stead you ask me questions:)

Please explain.


Actually, not being racist, I have a cousin and her children that live in Alice Spring, they are white and their husbands ( Mother and Daughter's) are Aboriginal.

The way that they treat their wives, is admorable, I've never seen so much love shown.

Most aboriginals prefer the dry climate so in Adelaide, they are few and far between, as for how Australia treats them, there was an apology made, pertaining to taking their "land" a few years ago...

Thank you very much for your expression of support, FOUND SOUL. I deeply appreciate it. Thanks for reaching out.

I sure hope your friend in Ireland has better luck with her sleep disorder. She has my full sympathy.

In the United States there now is a new branch of medicine: You guessed it! Sleep medicine. My problem is not falling asleep, but is staying asleep. I wake up at least two times during the night having to urinate. Often after the first time I don’t sleep as soundly. Some of the causes of this are physical -- such as diabetes, sleep apnea, or (with men) an enlarged prostate. I do have late onset type II diabetes, but my condition is too mild (thankfully) to account for it. Likewise, my prostate is of normal size. My sleep apnea is not extremely severe, although I still have to use a CPAP machine. In other words, there are any number of causes of sleep disorders. I think poor sleep habits over many years possibly messed up my biological clock. I’m going to have to be self-disciplined and make some changes in my life (including changes of a spiritual nature, I’m convinced).

Anyway, thanks again for your expression of sympathy, FOUND SOUL. I shall remember you and izzythepush. I’ll let you know when I’ve made substantial progress (hopefully), but that will be months from now.

@wmwcjr,
Actually, she wrote to me tonight, all excited

For her, it appears that it may be a birth control implant she had put in a few years ago, apparently it has a lot of side effects, including sleep disturbance.

I do think that our minds are the most powerful thing. I know when stressed, deep breathing, thinking positively, putting it out there, going for a walk, calming the mind and believing in good outcomes, takes away so much and makes me feel more at peace.

Maybe even though I don't do it, Smile Meditation and more positive thinking may help along with what your Doctor is suggesting... Which would be don't drink for hours before you sleep, Smile But maybe bladder is a thought to look into?

I've asked her actually to question her Doctor given he took the time where others did not, to find the possible reason, what could affect a guy:)

I'm going to go and look at my pony now and have a chocolate:)

@wmwcjr,
This may be of little help, but following my time in the merchant navy and a shift pattern of 4 hours on 8 hours off, I sometimes doze for a couple of hours in the afternoon. Have you tried anything like that?

I believe an outfit like this would work for your tough characters.

I have seen tough guys wear trench coats, overcoats, overiszed coats and jackets. I was told some of them wear suits - business suits, "power suits", etc.
Some tough guys wear overalls.

Fishermans and scally caps are popular.

I have to be careful about hats and suits though - I don't want characters to look like pimps:
