A Note to White People

Hello there White People, 

The sun is not your friend.  Please wear sunscreen.  Please require that your children wear sunscreen.

Thank you,


PS Bright blistering red does not look good on you.  Or you.  Or you. 


Seriously, I spent the day at a local amusement park yesterday and I noted the following:

99% of smokers stayed in the “sit and smoke” area.  (I LOVE these smokers)

The 1% of smokers who did not stay in the “sit and smoke” area tended to not wear sunscreen. (And in one case did not put sunscreen on the toddler who not only gets a head start on lung cancer thanks to Mommy and Daddy but is well on her way to skin cancer too.  I need reigned in on my judgment here because I can’t keep my opinion from overflowing.)

Is this smoking/no sunscreen occurrence a coincidence? 

Or is this a general disregard to all things cancer?

    If you don’t care, you just don’t care: about yourself, your kids, other people, other people’s kids.

    With all of the nasitness that smoking brings…you would think less people would do it…

    I love when you overflow… your opinion that is!
