My name is Judith Rodriguez , but after becoming american citizen, I took my husband’s name , Alexander . Thus, I’m Judith Alexander . Born in Cuba , on July 24, 1966 , seven years after the triumph of Fidel Castro. My childhood
was always between hymns and revolutionary slogans , not to mention the corresponding attributes that we should take every day to school. Our games were the normal ones for children of our time , where we did not know the nintendo, or the internet , much less cell phones , so our communication was always face to face . In adolescence , they taught us that we would be the new man in 2000 , and would enter the new millennium all converted into great professionals , which would all be equal , black and white , and with all our economic problems solved.But, what innocence of ours…we were just kids , and we were far from imagining what was waiting for us . This current era , full of technology, more disappointments than joys , full of strange paradoxes , and filled with seemingly unsolvable problems, inadvertently surprised us with no time to prepare.We were taught that homosexuality is far from being a manifestation of human sexuality, instead we were told that it could be either a desease or even worse, a crime . We were injected with hatred of anything that came from the United States, and we thought that we were really all the same. However, our harsh reality shows otherwise. Not everything is black and white, there are shades , nuances that did not let us know , nor taught us . And with this new era many found lost , having to learn to use the technology in record time. Facing that did not reach the new millennium being the successful professionals promised , and confronting the serious problem of racism , not just whites against blacks , but also of blacks against whites , racism against anyone who does not meet the parameters to be really white, tall and blond with blue eyes; or being black with all its attributes . Einstein , the great genius of the twentieth century , was very clear when he said ” I’m afraid of the era of intelligent machines and many stupid people .” The truth is that today a very high percentage of people the only smart thing they have is their smart phone . With this modest blog I want ,or at least try, to reach people , humans , not the phones , not Facebook , people itself. What they think, what they feel , and if possible to meet personally as it used to be in an era already dead .
