Shakira-something cool

Shakira Rests Hips to Study at UCLA
Sept. 14, 2007, 6:55 AM EST
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Shakira may get high grades in singing and swiveling her hips, but what about ancient Western history?
For the past month, the Colombian pop star has been taking a class at the University of California, Los Angeles, called "Introduction to Western Civilization: Ancient Civilizations from Prehistory to Circa A.D. 843."
"She went when she finished her tour, for the summer," Shakira's manager Fifi Kurzman told The Associated Press.
For years the 30-year-old has studied on her own, also taking tutorials on the history and languages of the countries she visits, Kurzman said.

I forget, what decade are we in?

If you read the news headlines on CNN today, you see "Nooses, violence divide town" and "Swastikas burned into golf fairways". You have to be kidding me. I know in this day and age there has been a resurgence of ideas of hatred that happened back 40, 50, 60 yrs ago (just go to Barcelona too, where neighborhood signs say "we are anti-Skinhead here" or "Nazi-ism not welcomed here"), but with all the cultural diversity and immigration going on in this country and everywhere else, people can't disregard skin color or background and get to know a person and who they are on the inside? I am so sick of this. When I have kids someday, I am going to have them be friends with everyone. African-Americans, Hispanics, Muslims, disabled people, etc.

Is anyone not scared about this???? My friend said this today when I told her about my blog idea: "Amazing how we can come so far and yet not go anywhere at all". Excellent summary. :(
