About Jamie Dimon: “Jamie Dimon was born in New York City to children of parents who were Greek immigrants.” (Wikipedia) Jamie Dimon is an insider, but he’s not an insider insider—Jamie Dimon is not Anglo and he’s not Aryan; Jamie Dimon is not a Mormon. cc all Mormon barristers
About Mellody Hobson: Mellody Hobson is married to George Lucas, Star Wars. I have no complaint against Mellody Hobson. I will be writing about Ariel (the book of Isaiah [God’s Word the Holy Bible] and the book of Revelation prophetic “leaves of the trees are for healing the nations”, as soon as I possibly can)

April 8, 2018, 9:15pm. About Me. During the 1990s two or three times I stayed four days three nights at Hamilton Park Conference Center in Florham Park, New Jersey, assisting Franklin West in administering seminars, JPMorgan Financial Training seminars. Franklin is a devout Mormon. It is not my intention to cause Franklin any grief. He had no idea where things were headed, and neither did I.

… Bryce, …
Like what you see?
(Microsoft popup on my computer, April 7, 2018, the day I was suffering from easy button laser beam pain in my left breast, so much so, I was thinking about taking an cab or an ambulance to an emergency room. cc all Mormon barristers)
Bryce has been Edison’s closest friend since fifth grade. His mother is a family court judge and his father is a Yale classics professor. In their living room is a glass vase, like the kind you’d find at a museum, housing a bona fide Grecian urn. They’ve taken Edison on vacation to Gstaad and Santorini.
“Bryce may just need to get used to the idea. Maybe he was surprised that you’d think of his sister, you know, that way. Because you are like family.”
“The problem is … I’m not.” My son sits up, his long legs dangling over the edge of the bed. “Bryce laughed. He said, ‘Dude. It’s one thing for us to hang out. But you and Whit? My parents would [excrement] a brick.’ ” His gaze slides away.’ “Sorry about the language.”
“That’s okay, baby,” I said. “Go on.”
“So I asked him why. It didn’t make any sense to me. I mean, I’ve been to Greece with his family. And he said, ‘No offense, but my parents would not be cool with my sister dating a Black guy.’ Like it’s okay to have a Black friend who comes on family vacations but it’s not okay for that friend to get involved with your daughter.”
I have worked so hard to keep Edison from feeling this line being drawn, it never occurred to me that when it happened—which, I guess, was inevitable—it would burn even more, because he had never seen it coming.
I reach for my son’s hand and squeeze it. “You and Whitney would not be the first couple to find yourselves on opposite sides of a mountain,” I say. “Romeo and Juliet, Anna Karenina and Vronsky. Maria and Tony. Jack and Rose.”
Edison looks at me in horror. “You do realize that in every example you just gave me, at least one of them dies?”
“What I’m trying to say is that if Whitney sees how special you are, she’ll want to be with you. And if she doesn’t, she’s not worth the fight.”
I put my arm around his shoulders; Edison leans into me. “That doesn’t make it suck any less.”
“Language,” I say automatically. “And no, it doesn’t.’
Not for the first time, I wish Wesley were still alive. I wish he hadn’t gone back on that second tour of duty in Afghanistan; I wish that he hadn’t been driving in the convoy when the IED exploded; I wish that he had gotten to know Edison not just as a child but as a teen and now a young man. I wish he were here to tell his son that when a girl makes your blood rush it’s just the first time of many.
I wish he were here, period.
If you could just see what we made, I think silently. He’s the best of both of us.

THE SNOW FALLS HARD AND fast that night, so that the plows can’t keep up, and the world becomes completely white. I wear my winter boots with the same skirt I’ve worn all week—I’ve been changing up the blouse—and stuff my dress shoes into a Stop & Shop bag. The radio is full of school closings, and the bus Edison and I have been taking breaks down, so we have to hurry to a different line and transfer twice. As a result, we reach the courthouse five minutes late. I’ve texted Kennedy, and know we don’t have time to sneak in through the back. Instead, she meets me on the steps of the courthouse, where immediately microphones are shoved at me and people call me a killer. Edison’s arm comes around me and I duck against his chest, letting him form a barrier.

April 8, 2018. About Me. I do not assume that, just because white parents do not want their son or daughter to marry a black person, or an Asian person or an Hispanic person, the parents are racists. (What is, in my opinion, detestable: pretense. cc New York City Mayor CIA agent Warren Wilhelm aka Bill de Blasio; cc CIA Mormon Betts, Chelsea Piers. cc all Mormon barristers) Some Asian parents want their children to marry only other Asians. Some black parents want their children to marry only other blacks. Just because parents want their offspring to marry someone from their own ethnic background, is not, in my opinion, racism. Does my opinion matter? No, of course not! Also About Me. I gave birth to three daughters. Their fathers and I did not “make” them; we did not create them.
