"No brutality, no infamy, no degradation in all the years of southern slavery, possessed such villainious character and such atrocious qualities as the provision of the laws of Illinois, Massachusetts, and other states which allow the marriage of the negro, Jack Johnson, to a woman of Caucasian strain. [applause]. Gentleman, I offer this resolution ... that the States of the Union may have an opportunity to ratifty it. ... Intermarriage between whites and blacks is repulsive and averse to every sentiment of pure American spirit. It is abhorrent and repugnant to the very principles of Saxon government. It is subversive of social peace. It is destructive of moral supremacy, and ultimately this slavery of white women to black beasts will bring this nation a conflict as fatal as ever reddened the soil of Virginia or crimsoned the mountain paths of Pennsylvania. ... Let us uproot and exterminate now this debasing, ultra-demoralizing, un-American and inhuman leprosy."

Mr. President, you should be ashamed. 

Whoh...

Well, it's finally happened, kids.

Due to a very creepy situation where someone at work keeps letting me know that he knows, "Allllll about me," I've been forced to make my journal pretty much friends-only.

I've gone back and changed all of my previous posts for the last almost 4 years to "Friends-Only" using HIDE Journal.

From here on out, most of my posts will be Friends-Only with the exception of those that I want to share publicly, like this one.

It's really, really sad that someone would make this attack on me. My LiveJournal has been something that I have honestly enjoyed to the core of me for the last 4 years. I've made some great friends both online and in real life. I've learned so much about other people AND about myself.

The fact that this person took that all away from me not only makes me angry, but it makes me sick. There aren't many things that I really, honestly and truly enjoy like my LiveJournal. And now that's gone.

It's not like my life is over because of this, but a very big, very important part of it is gone in a way. Changed due to someone's creepy stalking and my fear of what might come from that.

*sigh* I'm very upset and I really hate this person right now. I only have so many things that I enjoy and now this is gone too.
