I was told once. "You're not bad lookin for a white boy"
I took it as a compliment.

Same Preachers Grown Daughter As Before: "Ugh..my hair looks stupid tonight.... it looks like Julia's. "

The next night talking to me: "Oh girl, your hair looks good tonight....it reminds me of Julias!"


Poor Julia had no idea that her hair was used as both an insult and a compliment. And for the record, she had beautiful hair.

Easy... put up with c**p when you should stand up to it.

A lot of men think that by tolerating abuse, they are winning friends and influencing people. In fact, they are earning contempt as pushovers. Women don't respect them, especially in a dating context, because they foresee the man not being a good protector/provider.

The alternative is to be kind, in a Christlike way. Kindness is a fruit of the Holy Spirit. "Nice" isn't. :)
Not in that way. Just very kind.

Yes. Unfortunately society has stereotyped the intelligence of people based on hair color. I think merely as a joke but for some it can be very offensive. I often hear balding men scold me for shaving off all my hair. I can sympathize with their self-consciousness but it's only hair. Truth is we are exactly how we are meant to be.
