  1. I must say the welcome ceremony was impressive. You know, I love he wears his wedding ring, so many men don’t. Just another think to add to my list I suppose. Please, tell me why our President is recognized everywhere but here..it is stunning.


    • Most men I know wear a wedding ring…and I know a lot of dames who don’t. But not because they want to appear single, most have some finger issues. AmeriKKKa is the most racist nation on the globe.


      • Isn’t it funny, few men I know wear one. My husband took his off within days of our wedding. I wore mine until the day he left.

        Yes, yes it is. It makes me want to cry sometimes but then I think to myself, the only people who can change that is White people, those who were raised White like me and those who are willing to work across the table.
