David William Mitchell, 8/4/46 – 10/21/2006

On Saturday October 21st, 2006, my Uncle David Mitchell, suffered a massive heart attack and passed.Â

Talk about a major shock, he had just turned 60, and had many years before him, a devoted father, loving brother, a beloved Uncle, dear friend and skilled craftsman,  he often times would amuse us girls with stories of when he was a member of the Ice Capades. He would chew the ear off each Japanese exchange student my parents would host, reminiscing about the days when he was over there skating, where he met the mother of my cousin Tiffany.

My uncle was a Mitchell through and through, he was full of laughter and stubborn, he loved each one of us deeply and he could spin a yarn that would make you think he had kissed the blarney stone.  It was always a delight to come home for the holidays to hear him telling stories about the past, things that my grandparents did, that my mother did, even things we did as children.Â

Uncle David was extremely close to my mother, calling her every Sunday to read the comics with her, to discuss how his week had gone or was going.  Often times he would drop by just to chat.  I loved it when I would be home for a visit and he’d call… He’d greet me with his standard “hey kid, How’s your trip”.

Uncle David had an impish side that popped out in the most unlikely times, this week my mom went to a viewing and she said, He had this smile on his face as though he was trying to say “Welp! I did it my way!!”

Uncle David, you will be deeply missed not only by your daughter, but by your sister, brother, nieces, cousins and dear friends.

This poem sums up how my uncle lived his life… Â

Skate as though no one is watching you.
Love as though you have never been hurt before.
Sing as though no one can hear you.
Live as though heaven is on earth.

Proud to be a White (read before you judge!)

Someone else besides me finally said it.  How many are actually paying attention to this?

There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, Arab Americans, Native Americans, etc. and then there are just Americans.You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction. You call me “White boy,” “Cracker,” “Honkey,” “Whitey,” “Caveman” and that’s OK. But when I call you, Nigger, Kike, Towelhead, Sand-nigger, camel Jockey, Beaner, Gook, or Chink you call me a racist

You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you, so why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?

You have the United Negro College Fund.
You have Martin Luther King Day.
You have Black History Month.
You have Cesar Chavez Day.
You have Yom Hashoah.
You have Ma’uled Al-Nabi.
You have the NAACP.
You have BET

If we had WET(White Entertainment Television) we’d be racists.
If we had a White Pride Day you would call us racists.
If we had White History Month, we’d be racists.
If we had any organization for only whites to “advance” our lives, we’d be racists.

We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce, and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce.
Wonder who pays for that?

If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships, you know we’d be racists.  There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges in the US, yet if there were “White colleges” that would be a racist college. In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and rights. If we marched for our race and rights, you would call us racists.

You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you’re not afraid to announce it. But when we announce our white pride, you call us racists.

You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us. But, when a white police officer shoots a black gang member or beats up a black drug-dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society, you call him a racist.

I am proud.  But, you call me a racist.

Why is it that only whites can be racists?

There is nothing improper about this posting.  Let’s see which of you are proud enough to forward it.Â

You hang in there sunshine !!!Â

You’re fucking special…Â

Love, Kat  Â
