For a long long time I have been ashamed of being a prostitute in 1968. But to day I was watching a documentary about rap. Apparently a famous rap song back in the 60's was called "The Hustlers Convention. It was all about pimps and hustlers coming together for a huge party. I believe in real life it still exists and "The Players Ball." So I am watching about the history of rap and a famous rap song about pimps and prostitutes and suddenly I felt proud as a white woman to have been part of that culture. Many would say why would you idealize such a life style. Well you have to watch the documentary to understand that. As Black people learned to have a voice after years of slavery and racisim, glorifying the lifestyle that came from that was important. So I am sitting in the living you while Frank sleeps on the couch while we wait for our new bed to arrive and God is showing me that shame is a useless emotion.
