To People Of Color...

 
As a white man, with insider knowledge, I can assure you that there are way more hateful, racist white a-holes than you probably already imagine.

However, take heart in the fact that there are way more white people who are your allies than you probably imagine.

We're trying, believe me. We can't turn all of the racists around overnight, but we're trying.

Insider knowledge?  If he's got insider knowledge, that means he associates with racists.  Guilt by association, Dummy.  Your standard, not mine

I have seen racism from blacks though.

From a purely semantic viewpoint, is there any difference between saying "people of color" and "colored people'? I don't see it. Certainly the latter isn't that big of a deal, otherwise the NAACP would have changed their name. But other than the historical slight of saying "colored people", there really is no difference.

I'm guessing that it won't be long until "people of color" will be a racist phrase, depending on who says it, of course.

He's a Democrat and hangs out with mostly Democrats so he probably sees a lot more white racists than the average conservative. He probably looks back fondly to the old days when any democrat could just string a black man up and every negro knew his place.
Man’s greatness is so obvious that it can even be deduced from his wretchedness, for what is nature in animals we call wretchedness in man, thus recognizing that, if his nature is today like that of the animals, he must have fallen from some better state which was once his own.

Come on, someone has gotta fess up that this is their mole someday.  Meanwhile, don't keep trying so hard.  You reeled in a bunch of DUmmies with your "attacked at work by a MAGA co-worker" tale.  But seasoned, somewhat sane DUmmies were calling bullshit.

I live in California and have seen huge racism from blacks.  Never any from whites but I think that is changing thanks to the left.

I've seen, online, indications that some whites are so totally POed at being falsely accused of racism that their resentment is turning into total distrust of blacks (and Hispanics as well).

True story.

I've a friend who works in a grocery store.  This store has a little coffee area, where they make lattes and such, fill growlers with beer, and the make the southern staple - sweet tea, and sell it by the gallon.

Black female, late 40's, buys said sweet tea, takes it home, brings it back the next day HALF GONE, and wants her money back because it wasn't sweet enough.

SHE DOES THIS 6 TIMES.

Finally they tell her that maybe she should try some other tea, since she obviously doesn't like theirs.

She accuses the employee of being a racist, and files a complaint with corporate about the racism the store employees exhibit.

Nothing happens to any employee.

During truck driver training, my trainer was black. Good guy, grouchy at times, but what can you do. He was happy to teach as long as you tried and put the work in. His daughter though... unemployed and steeped in some heavy farrakhan level stuff. It was impressive the level of white devil victimhood she posessed

My son worked for a time at a fast-food restaurant. A 40-ish black man tried the old pay-with-a-$10-claim-it-was-a-$20 scam on my son. Son refused to fall for it or buy the guy off, and the black guy started calling my son a racist. My son retorted appropriately. To shut the Race Card Player up the manager sent my son home and gave the Race Card Player $10, knowing that the count of my son's cash drawer would vindicate my son (which it did). Thankfully, my son had been well taught about racism (except that he would be hated for his own skin color, mea goofa) and plenty of friends of a wide variety of ethnic heritages.

One of my first jobs while in college was at a shoe store. One day I was on the sales floor with one other salesperson when suddenly a crowd came in and all wanting service. Most saw there were only 2 of us on the floor and were patient. But this one black woman wasn’t and wanted me to ignore everyone but her. She threw such a fuss when I wouldn’t disregard everyone else, I told her to leave. Well, you can guess from there. Racism!

The store security person told me she smelled alcohol on the woman’s breath.

Look, the color of money is green. When it comes to these things, that’s all I really care about. But I don’t put up with rude, that’s for sure.

The radio is playing a sad old country song,
About somebody loved someone up until they done 'em wrong,
There's whiskey in the bottle and bullets in the gun,
I bet the devil will be waiting when this lonely ride is done ...

Reach down and change the station some holy roller's on,
He tells me to do right after a life of doing wrong.
He tells me that salvation's just a credit card away,
Think I'll pay a little visit ain't doing nothing anyway ...
