I know, that title is not really a title, it's more like a description. I was reading Twitter this morning and I saw the Columbus Day hashtag. There were several tweets about how we shouldn't celebrate a day that resulted in the rape, murder, and abuse of so many Native Americans---agreed---10000% agreed.

My heart is heavy as I type this. I saw in the news tonight that another young black man had been shot by police. The expected words from those on both sides of the incident--Twitter blowing up--the Twitterverse seems to always know about the news even before the news channels do--LOL.

Tonight I have tried to put myself in the shoes of those in the black community. I grew up, for the first eleven years of my life, in a predominately black neighborhood, I went to a school where white kids were the minority. I have seen for myself, in many places, that racism is alive and well. From Rochester, NY, where I was born, and lived until I was eleven, I moved to a small farming community in NY, with my grandmother, father, and my older sister April. April was Mulatto. I saw a lot of what she experienced, she had friends, but she never seemed to truly be accepted by either group.

So I have seen the racism from both sides, from black people, and from white people.

Recently I wrote a blog about using Technology to create social change. I showed how we could do this using social media. That was just one way to use technology to change policy and create a movement.

 I was fortunate enough to have interviewed the CEO and VP for Spendefy, Eldredge E. Washington, and Antwon Davis, on Cairo Qween's Taste Of Technology with Juarez Jackson. They made a lasting impression on me from the jump, and now they are making the world a better place for everyone economically.
