I am white, urban, left-of center, and very interested in prepping but disgusted by the right-wing, racist elements in a lot of the prepper communities and blogs out there. I’m tired of feeling like those people ‘own’ prepping-there needs to be a counterweight. Keep it up.

Comment on Shelter In Place and Getting Out Are The Only 2 Things We Should Prepare For by Kay https://www.blackprepper.com/shelter-in-place-and-get-out/#comment-4371 Wed, 31 May 2017 06:34:44 +0000 http://www.blackprepper.com/?p=653#comment-4371 Hmmmmm. Most of my scenarios involve staying put, to be honest. I think it is easier and more practical. Like you said, one can’t carry everything when one needs to get out. I also think in an urban environment, people should be more focused on strengthening bonds with their neighbors and such, instead of trying to run and hide in the hills and defend their one little cabin against the marauders they’re sure are coming. I think too many people have this kind of mindset because of the American romanticism of the rugged individual und blah blah blah. The reality is, going it alone is tough and draining as hell.
Also important is if you’re getting out, have a clear destination. And be very wary of places other entities are steering you towards (remember the Superdome in Katrina, anyone?)!
Preparation takes time and money. Most of us don’t have those in spades, but we can get it done a little at a time. Partial prep is better than no prep IMO, and we can go a lot farther by helping each other than by isolating and insulating ourselves.

Comment on Shellfish Allergy – How I Overcame a Food Allergy by Kay https://www.blackprepper.com/how-i-overcame-a-food-allergy/#comment-4370 Wed, 31 May 2017 06:22:45 +0000 http://www.blackprepper.com/?p=762#comment-4370 You know, I once met a doctor who told me an interesting story: like you, she had a food allergy for much of her life (pineapples). When she ate them in America, she had an unpleasant allergic reaction. Then one time when she went to Jamaica and unknowingly ate something that contained pineapples, guess what happened? NOTHING. Worth considering is whether we are really allergic to whatever food in question, or we’re allergic to the BigAg genetically modified versions of those foods (and in the case of meat, the farmed and hormone laden animals).

Something will trigger the desire yet I allow it to fade. I am a 46 year old former police officer with some skills however in need of more. I plan on adding skills that will make me more valuable to a survival group that respects my humanity and right to exist. This is why this site is so valuable as I have not found any that recognize our humanity. I live in a college town in N. Florida if there are any like-minded individuals that want to connect.
