Notorious in the Neighborhood
Sex and Families Across the Color Line in Virginia, 1787-1861
"Laws and cultural norms militated against interracial sex in Virginia before the Civil War. Nonetheless, it was ubiquitous in urban, town, and plantation communities throughout the state. In Notorious in the Neighborhood, Joshua Rothman examines the full spectrum of interracial sexual relationships under slavery-from Thomas Jefferson, Sally Hemings, and the intertwined interracial families of Monticello and Charlottesville, to commercial sex in Richmond, the routinized sexual exploitation of enslaved women, and adultery across the color line.
White Virginians allowed for an astonishing degree of flexibility and fluidity within a seemingly rigid system of race and interracial relations, Rothman argues, and the relationship between law and custom regarding racial intermixture was always shifting. As a consequence, even as whites never questioned their own racial supremacy, the meaning and significance of racial boundaries, racial hierarchy, and ultimately of race itself always stood on unstable ground--a reality that whites understood and about which they demonstrated increasing anxiety as the sectional crisis intensified."
Joshua Rothman is Professor of History and African American Studies at the University of Alabama, where he is also Director of the Frances S. Summersell Center for the Study of the South.

Back in the 1990's I heard a talk given by Dave Stone on Jesus living in a modern neighborhood.
Mark 10:35–45 offers several reasons why we should be servants in our community, in our work environment, and in the neighborhood in which God has placed us. Jesus said that he did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many. But what took place before Jesus said those words? Why did Jesus break into a seemingly impromptu speech on servanthood?
A few verses before, in Mark 10:32–34, the disciples and Jesus are walking to Jesus' neighborhood in Jerusalem. He's explaining what is going to happen to him there: I've got some news for you. The religious leaders are going to arrest me; they're going to mock me; they're going to spit upon me; they're going to kill me. Three days later I'm going to come back from the dead.
This is the opposite of a smooth segue. Jesus tells them he is going to be put to death.
In verse 35, James and John, the sons of Zebedee, ask Jesus to let them have whatever they ask for. Just like a little kid says, "Hey, Mom! Just say yes, just say yes," these disciples asked for permission ahead of time. "What do you want me to do for you?" he asked. They replied, "Let one of us sit at your right and the other at your left in your glory."
Talk about being presumptuous. James and John felt they deserved seats of honor. I'm so glad none of us ever worry about things like that. We never worry about the corner office. We never ask to be first. We never want our favorite choice for dinner. Actually, we're just like these two guys. Jesus looks back at them and says: You guys don't know what you're asking. Do you drink the cup that I drink?

THe Searcher's Road Map is excited to have Ladamira with us today to share in meditation and conversation.
In the past 30 years, there have been many great advances in approaches and techniques geared towards the development of “The Self”. It has given many the confidence needed to “be themselves”, “accept themselves”, “trust and forgive themselves”… “be who they really are”.
However the past 10 years have seen a total revolution in the way we communicate and interact with our world. It has become very apparent – and the Internet and the Social Networks are mirroring that phenomenon – that we live as a connected organism. “The Self” is no longer enough; it is the collective that prevails, the connections, the flow and speed of information that determine our existence. “The cloud” will increasingly be where the information resides, and we tend towards being able to access it at will, with intelligence and speed, anytime, anywhere.
What a powerful metaphor… but the existential question “Who am I?” that people have asked since the beginning of time and which is nowadays acutely thrown in this modern collective context, remains a constant mystery.
