Literature
Cold Morning
In a secluded room of the ancient monastary, the thin frame of a young girl of perhaps eight years sat motionless on the cold stone floor.  Her legs crossed and her back straight in the lotus position, her hands clasped loosely in her lap, you'd almost take her for a statue if it weren't for the slow raising and falling of her chest as she breathed the frigid air.  A small candle sat in its dish on the floor in front of her, the small flame casting a flickering light on the walls of the chamber, the tiny column of warm air rising from its spark of heat barely holding back the midwinter cold.
After a time, perhaps a few moments or pehaps a few millennia, the candle rose slowly from the floor.  The small flame came to float in midair at the girl's eye level.  Then, just as slowly it sank back down and came to rest on the floor again.
She grinned from ear to ear and looked up at the hooded figure of the monk observing her.  "I did it master!  I even set it do

I love feedback! Please tell me what I'm doing wrong - don't worry, I have a thick skin. ^_^ That includes stylistic tips or suggestions, or things it might help me to learn. I especially appreciate feedback on how well (or not) I show emotion, that's something I have trouble with.

I'm open to requests if anyone would like something. And I'm always happy to chat.

:iconbobo-kitty: made the chibi avatar for me - she totally rocks!
Interests
It's pretty common for people of a certain political point of view to talk about racism against whites and how civil rights advocates are actually anti-white.  That's it's whites who are the real victims here.  And when you ask such people if their apparent antipathy toward non-whites make them racist, they will generally answer with something to the effect of, "No, because racism is the belief that the color of someone's skin makes them inferior, and I don't believe that."

Fair enough.

But that does raise one small question.  When has anyone ever suggested that whites are inferior?  I personally have never run across anyone claiming that.  Now I'm sure that if you scour the far reaches of the internet you can find someone who's said such a thing, as is true of virtually any statement.  But that's besides the point.  That's not what any civil rights groups are saying.

So it's clear that these folks have one narrow definition of racism when it's whites being racist against non-whites, and a very different, very broad definition of racism when it's racism against whites.

Yes, it's certainly true that there are a lot of people out there who are angry at whites.  Can you honestly say that they don't have good reason?  And there are even people who hate whites.  But if you want to call that out as racism, you have to accept that makes whites who dislike other races racist as well.  We're all human.  We all get angry and resentful when we feel we've been wronged.  We all fear the outsiders.  There's nothing wrong with having those feelings.  But letting yourself be ruled by that fear and acting on it, lashing out at others is wrong.

Oh wow, I'd completely forgotten that you'd faved one of my pages.  I was just enjoying Kami's Assistant and I thought that the line, "I was just a little surprised because you didn't say, 'I want to go home.'" was really good.
