LIFE IS LIKE A BOX OF CRAYONS


I REMEMBER BACK IN THE DAY WHEN FLESH COLORED CRAYONS BECAME PEACH COLORED CRAYONS. BUT THE MAKER OF THESE WASN’T RACIST BUT ONLY JUST POLITICALLY INCORRECT. THERE WERE NO INJUN’ RED CRAYONS, NO POLACK PURPLES, NO DRUNKIN’ IRISHMAN GREENS, AND MOST CERTAINLY NO “N” WORD BLACK ONES!

WAS IT THE NAIVE FIFTIES OR WERE WE JUST INSENSITIVE OR JUST PLAIN MEAN SPIRITED? PROBABLY SOME COMBINATION OF ALL THREE! BUT BECAUSE FOLKS BACK THEN WERE NOT PERFECT DOES IT MEAN WE THROW THEM OUT WITH THE BATH WATER OR JUST LOWER THE PEDESTAL THAT WE PUT THEM UP ON? AT THE END OF THE DAY MY GRAND KIDS LOVE THERE CORRECTLY NAMED CRAYONS!

AND THAT IS ALL I’M GOING TO SAY ABOUT THAT!
