It took me a couple of days to simmer down - Now I can write about it -
I went to lunch with an friend who we always try to get together but she cancels. It was only because she had ordered Skin So Soft that we even connected. So we went to lunch. She's nice and all and I was looking forward to catching up.
She has a boyfriend now - and mostly she talked about him. When it was my turn to talk, I shared about my niece Nissa. (see Islamophobia, it is real) HERE WE GO AGAIN. She got quiet and soon after, she seemed uncomfortable and wanted to leave. There was such a drastic change in her. I could just see her thinking...instead of just listening to me, she was stuck on stupid - and couldn't get passed her ignorant-thought-process.
You know, it kinda hurt my feelings.
I guess it will always be this way. This is that small-town mentality that I hate. Don't get me wrong, I love it here but it ain't paradise. Many of the people have been born and raised here and they don't like change and they don't want to understand diversity.
I am so glad I was raised in San Francisco. What a total blessing on my life, that has been. Granted San Francisco now is a bit "out there" even for me - but I still love the spirit it has always had and that goes back to the early days - it always attracted innovated, diverse people.
I have more rants about this lunch date - that I need to mull around a bit more in my head.

scary If you've been following me, you would know I am not that social of a person. I used to be a social butterfly at one time...
