Wow!

Due to some pretty rude/unintelligent/judgemental comments I have received over Friday's post, I have now deleted it. I won't address the comments because honestly, they aren't worth my time!

I know who I am as a person!

I AM a Christian! I am not perfect, no one is!

And am IN NO WAY or FORM a racist! Ask any of my friends!! I can handle being called MANY things, but not that. NO WAY! I never even mentioned race on that post.

So I will let that go and move on. And I apologize to anyone that I offended!

Thank you to all my blog friends who read my blog and post positive comments. You always brighten my day!

I never comment on here but I had to leave you a note on this one! I read that post and I thought it was well written, and humorous ... I know you personally and know what a sweet, kind (not racist in the least) person you are but even if I didn't... You prefaced everything you said and I didn't find it distasteful at all!! Just wanted you to know that!!

love you and your blog!!
Amanda

I didn't, for one second, get the impression you were saying anything racially motivated. You were only stating observations you made and while they were humorous (to say the least), you were not making fun of anyone. I'm so sorry you received negative comments.

Shelley said...

Some people just have to have a stick up their butt about something. Something isn't mean or sterotypical if its TRUE. you posted word for ebonic word. Hilarious TRUE story told exactly as it was said!

Don't feel bad, you know who your true friends are! Love you!

PS I'm Black and I wasn't offended at all! ;)

Oh no! Now i'm sad I missed the post....but i'm sure I would have agreed with you in whatever you said! :) I'm sorry you got rude comments! I still love you/your blog:) hehe

Adam said...

Ok, this is the Husband again and I just had to comment in regards to the comments my wife received on the post she took down... I read my wifes blog everyday, even though some of the things she writes I have no clue about. haha But it helps me keep up with her crazy life.
And I just had to say to those who felt it necessary to leave rude or harsh comments...Please get a life. My wife is wonderful and caring and is the most kind hearted person you will ever meet. I read the post and I thought it was hilarious. It is a shame that people cant see past themselves long enough to see the big picture. Last time I checked no one makes you read somoene else's blog. If you dont like it, keep your mouth shut and move on. No need to share your opinion. I dont think anyone who reads this blog regularly cares what you may think anyway.
Dont attack my wife's character or values. She is one of the best people you will ever know and I am lucky to have her in my life, thats for sure. If you knew her at all, you would know how wonderful she is and caring to EVERYONE!
She even apologized, which in my opinion she didnt have anything to apologize for.
I will defend my wife for anything and this is no different. To all of you who found this "offensive", lighten up.
Love you baby! :)

Awe... honey -- Seriously... If anyone doesn't KNOW your heart from all your sweetness, they don't deserve your attention -- I'm sorry :(

The Fabulous Side of Me said...

It does not surprise me, even though I don't know you, that you are being the bigger person here. I read your post and some of the uncalled for comments. I thought the blog was a funny replay of something that happened and did not think it was offensive at all.

Emily said...

I love what your husband wrote.. you are one lucky lady! Some people need to realize.. if you cant say something nice than say nothing at all.. this is your blog.. you can say whatever you want here... whatever you want... people need to keep their negativity to their stinking self! ughhh negative people--- booo!

mt said...

Sweet response by your husband. I read your blog this morning for the first time and read your post. I did not think your post was offensive. You were not giving your opinion -- you were relaying what you heard. Huge difference.

Anyway, I found this message on another blog --- I am not going to write which one -- only initials: BEB.

She recently had something similar happen to her and wrote this:

We are not always going to agree with each other in the Blogosphere. What I write on my blog is my personal opinion, and this world that we live in is interesting and fun because of differing opinions. I do not force my beliefs down anyone's throat because you have to come to me to read what I believe. I will never come to your blog to give you my opinion, but you know that you can always find it right here.

If you want to e-mail her for permission prior to posting it -- let me know and I will forward the link to you.

I missed Fridays post, but even from just knowing you through the blogosphere I know you wouldn't have said anything racist! Sometimes the written word is so subjective...just wanted you to know I love your blog!

Mojito Maven said...

oh love, you already know my thoughts! I think you are wonderful!!

Alison said...

Oh Please!

Friday's post was too funny and it was NOT racist.

All the haters need to go download the song from Avenue Q "Everyone's a Little Bit Racist."

Megan said...

I didn't think anything was wrong with what was written!!

Katy said...

Nothing you wrote was racist. If you are simply quoting some students, how does that make you racist? I don't get it.

It was funny and what you heard. This is YOUR blog, so you should be able to write what you want. If they have a problem, then don't bookmark it and move on.

I'm sorry you had some stupid blog commenters. :-(

Blue-Eyed Bride said...

you're amazing and you already know what i think about your funny post and the nasty comments you got. :)

now i love adam for sticking up for you, his wifey!!

i read what "mt" wrote... of course you can use my statement if you want to, but it sounds like you got yourself covered here.

midnight macaroons said...

I’m sorry I went after Shmoopie on your blog but when she used God and your faith to tear you down; PLEASE!!! It was on like Donkey Kong. I thought it was terrible what she wrote about you. I don’t know you but I can see that you have a good heart. There was nothing wrong with your post. You were stating the obvious. I’m so sick of people making everything about race. Dumb ass comes in all shapes, colors, sexes and financial status. Don’t let some selfish narrow minded BEE-ACH shame you. That’s what family’s for, ha, ha… Hey Shmoopie poopie pants… you SUCK for putting down Fluffy. Sista Fluffy, I got your back. Everyone who read your post loved it!!! You're hilarious. Don't change.

Tracy's Porch said...

I'm sorry you got nasty comments. I read your post Friday and didn't think one thing about it. Wish I would have read the comments so I know what people said.

I've had people misinterpret me on my blog and it is so frustrating. I feel for you right now.

Jessica said...

I hate that you even had to apologize for that halarious post!Noone should have been offended by that and if they were.. they could have clicked away! I hope this didn't get you down for too long! You know what kind of person you are.. along with the rest of us!!

Krystyn said...

WTG to your hubby for sticking up for you.

And, I didn't think there was anything wrong with it at all. It made me laugh:)

I never get the negative comments. If you don't like it, move on!

Love ya!

Sarah said...

Your husbands post was so sweet he really thinks the world of you

Julia said...

by the way ALL inner city white kids talk like that too!! so it's not really a race thing at all! Not a word about what race these High school kids were, so if someone assumes that they are a certain race i think that reveals a sore spot for THEM, not you.

Jeauxdi said...

Sorry you receive rude comments! SHAME on the person for taking your post the wrong way! But it's all gravy baby!

=0)

Have a giggly night!

M and G said...

I didn't get to read your other post, but I'm sorry you have to deal with lame-o people! And kudos to the hubs for sticking up for you!

TexasLauren77 said...

Oh girl...so sorry to hear that someone felt they had to be rude. Anyone who has read your blog knows you're great and a sweet person. Don't let it get to you!! I read your post and thought it was a hilarious and not at all racist because all you were doing was quoting what you heard. People need to get a grip.

Missy R. said...

I didn't get to read your post but you're awesome & never apologize for who you are! Keep it up girl you have tons of friends in the blogging world who love ya!

Brown Eyed Girl said...

Oh brother! People will always find something to complain about. Your post was no where near racist...it was hilarious! Sorry you had to deal with that. You are beautiful and funny and just from reading your blog I can tell you don't have a mean bone in your body. Keep up the good posts!! And bravo to your sweet hubby!!

Katie said...

geez lynds...i mean, seriously, i have a second uncle that can take out some kneecaps if you wanna show me the names of these punks. and he is italian...and owes me a couple favors :)

morewineplease said...

sweet lady... I thought it was a funny post.. no harm done.. there is always going to be that person out there that does not like what someone else is says..

keep up the awesome blogging!

Risa said...

Some people are just freaks about racism anymore, they have to make everything an issue. I read the post and thought it was funny. I grew up in the Southwest and I didn't immediately think any race, I just thought Ghetto wanna be cool kid (white, black whatever).

So cute the hubs writes on your blog :-) I can't even get mine on facebook.

mdp008 said...

No apology needed.

Your Friday post was freakin' hilarious! Some people just need to lighten up and see the humor in everyday life. If they don't like your blog... then they don't need to read it!

Love your blog.

Being Brazen said...

CANNOT believe you got negative comments about that post - oh well, some people will just complain about anything...I thought it was a funny post

*hugs*

The Heckathorns said...

I can't beleive anyone would get anything racist from friday's post! I read it and the only thing I got out of it was how proud of your fellow Alumni and how you were cheering him on during the superbowl. Whatever right? Some people can be really into themselves sometimes! (everything is about them...or out to get them. LOL!) And I think it's sweet your hubby got on here and said all that sweet stuff! ♥ Keep on the funny blogs and just be yourself. That's what we love and if someone doesn't love it, well they can go somewhere else!!!

The Lavender Lily said...

oh no! i didn't get to read any blogs on friday, so i guess i won't know what all the fuss is about. it looks like your loyal readers are very supportive in their comments here and your husband is very sweet, too. whatever it was, don't let it bother you anymore, you are by far the bigger person!

SassyEngineer said...

I agree with your sweety hubby, you didn't need to apologize. You are completely allowed to voice your opinion on your own blog, and it wasn't bad anyway. I love ya, girlie!

Candice said...

So sorry you received negative, rude comments. Some people just really like drama and they'll jump at the chance to make something out of nothing. I read your post, and I by no means was offended or thought that you were being negative about anybody.

Try not to let it get you down...there are tons and tons of people (such as myself:) who love your blog, and can tell that you are sweet, kind fun loving person!

Jesslee said...

I read the post and could totally relate, being a teacher, I hear that same lingo, speech, whatever you want to call it everyday (from several races/ethnicities). So don't feel bad or apologize because someone who obviously has an "issue" with their own race or ethnicity. I don't get offended when I hear people talk about how redneck or "country" I may sound sometimes -and trust me- my own speech has been and could be seen in a funny parody on SNL. If you can't laugh at yourself (or your "peoples" sterotypes) then you're the one with the race-problem.

Looove that your darling husband posted that sweet note. You are a wonderful, sweet person and don't think twice about it.

KrissyBo. said...

I missed reading the post since I've been sick. By reading what others have written and said, I can assume that I would have gotten a good laugh out of whatever it was...and anything you say here is YOUR opinion and right since it is your blog...and if anyone doesn't like it then they just shouldn't come by and visit. You're a great and fun blogger, so keep your head up! :)

Lindsey said...

I LOVE what your husband wrote - so sweet and so true!!!
You are the sweetest person and I adore you and your blog! I'm really glad we're bloggy friends!

Tara Gibson said...

I didnt get a chance to read the post, but I find it so ridiculous for people to write mean hurtful things on blogs.. They come to YOUR blog to read it.. they are not forced too. Girl you are a great person! Dont let those types of people get you down : )

Carrie said...

OH. MY. GOD. I read your post and thought it was HILARIOUS. You were not being racist, you were making fun of stupid people. I'm sorry but some people are idiots and should get made fun of. Geeze, calm down people.

Petunia said...

So sorry that some rude people left mean comments. Just ignore them because I can tell that you are a good person!

kara battel said...

i thought that your post on friday was hilarious! shame on those giving you a hard time-- everyone- everyone has a right to their opinion!

The Pink Chick said...

You totally don't need to apologize! That post was hilarious! You weren't being racist! People are just way too sensitive! I am sorry that you received unkind comments! Sending you lots of blog love!
