Once Again the Ignorance Of Arizona Makes National Headlines

Standard

A fraternity at Arizona State University held an offensive MLK party that shows our state’s continued ignorance and inability to grow up, grow beyond what we were, grow above where we were yesterday!

This video below…is from Channel 5 KPHO from Phoenix, Arizona…depicting an “MLK Black Party by the group show members in basketball jerseys, flashing gang signs, and even drinking out of watermelon cups.”

I say it over and over again that I just don’t understand how stupid can keep getting stupidider! And YES, that is my new word….sort of like Forrest Gump said…”Stupid is as stupid does!”

  1. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    • My WordPress protector had this in the Spam folder, but when I read it I realized that if I don’t take and grow from criticism then what good would I be as a blogger or a person, for that matter. I appreciate what you’ve said here and am going to take a concerted effort, when and where I can, to flesh out my pieces with a little more of “me”. I hope you’ll come back and check Copperleaf Treasures out again in the future and see if your words have had an effect.

  2. Thanks for your marvelous posting! I truly enjoyed reading it, you might be a great author.I will make certain to bookmark your blog and may come back
    in the foreseeable future. I want to encourage you continue your great work, have a nice day!

  3. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your site.
    Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems?
    A few of my blog audience have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer
    but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any recommendations to help fix
    this issue?

    • I’ve experienced that same problem with Netflix…perfect in IE but won’t even begin to work for me in Google Chrome. I wish I had a quick or even a good recommendation for this but I think putting this question to the WordPress gurus and the forums here in WordPress would garner you the best results! Good luck and thank you so much for reading my blog…

  4. Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had
    written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as
    well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing.

    Do you have any points for newbie blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    • You betcha…and this is going to be a ‘Do as I say & not as I do’ kind of thing.
      1) Be consistent
      Decide what you can realistically deliver. How many times a week and then what days a week. Have this set in your mind before you get going to far down the road. (You could realistically write a 4 or 5 part piece and then schedule the days & times in WordPress)
      2) (this is one I do) Don’t be afraid to blog on the many different things that interest you! There are so many blogs that are regimented to only 1 goal, 1 idea, 1 facet of all that makes up ‘you’
      3) Have fun!

  5. Just wish to say your article is as astounding. The clarity for your post is simply cool and that i could assume
    you’re an expert in this subject. Fine together with your permission allow me
    to grab your RSS feed to stay up to date with imminent post.
    Thank you 1,000,000 and please carry on the enjoyable work.

  6. I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a
    blog that’s both equally educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is somehing not enough men and women are
    speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across
    this in my hunt for something regarding this.

    • Thank you so much…sometimes I fear I chase people away, so I find myself moderating what I write and post on my blog, but I am finding that the older I get, the more fun I have just writing from my heart! So thank you again!!!!
