Daily Run 06-05

Best thing ever: I’m exhausted because I fucked my girlfriend, then went on a 1/2 mile ride before spending another 2 hours playing club golf online.
What I learned: Its Wednesday but I swear it felt like a Thursday.
Do Over: Pack more lunch, saved a bunch.
Song of the Day: It’s My Thing EPMD
Random Thought: it’s been a long time I shouldn’t have left you


Taxes Death Trouble This I Know

I just got a bill from the IRS for some racks. I think they hating on me with the President hiding his income. Apparently I forgot to claim 10k in salary back in 2017 and another 4K from my IRA. I think the bank is to blame for the IRA thing because I definitely paid taxes. Now I’m changing summer plans to get this check off. Taxes death and trouble. Marvin Gaye until the day it’s paid I guess.

I’m struggling with this switch into education. I went about it in the dumbest way. My uncles murder screwed with my thinking and I bulled through because I had something to prove. Going broke in Tulsa was a stupid plan. The funniest part about winning and loving it is that I’m paying unnecessary dues. When you swim upstream is it because you like the struggle. Asking for a friend.

Cultural Dominance vs. Sub-Dominance

Cultural Dominance vs. Sub-Dominance

Every society has a dominant culture and a sub-dominant culture. The dominant culture largely sets the agenda in terms of aesthetic values, arts and entertainment, educational achievement, and even the norms of speaking and writing. These divisions can have tribal, linguistic, geographical or racial manifestations to name a few. In the U.S. one historical paradigm has been racial and within that paradigm, the dominant culture has been White. There are many sub-dominant cultures like African Americans, Latinos, and women (each of which can be further sub-divided). The dominant culture views its own ways as simply “normal” and not “cultural” but people in sub-dominant cultures have to learn both their own culture and the dominant culture while constantly confronting the notion that their sub-dominant expressions are “other.” Those in the dominant culture are not necessarily evil or malicious in their ways and those in the sub-dominant culture are in no way inferior. Yet the dynamics between the two groups remain, no matter who occupies which position, and these factors must be understood for greater harmony between people groups.
