Trying to say your of mixed race is horse shat.
And yet I still am. What, I don't fit neatly into your little black and white racism box? (pun intended) My mom is black and Adai indian and Arcadiana
french. My dad is a frenchman with black and indian in his ancestry too. Like I said us creoles have all the colors of people in us (except no asain
ancestry). I used to spend many a summer with my little black cousins in Lake Charles setting crab traps and fishing off the canals. Most of them were
smart and moved away from this stupid state as soon as they were old enough.
Yea I told people about the trip......right when I wrote it down here at ATS.
Yet in your last post I thought you said you did'nt tell a soul?
And again I was harrassed by cops in Kentucky not Ferguson MS.
Why does it matter where the cops are from? You are the only one harping on this point like it somehow changes things. Now you know the tribal
mentality of cops transcends state boundaries.
The one driving the SUV did. I never said " hey man i got video on my phone about the cops in Ferguson" When your phone is taken and accessed while
your temp-cuffed on the curb....little I can do about that.
Then maybe you should have woke your arse up and told the driver "Hey man I hope you're not stupid enough to tell this guy we were at the Ferguson
But hey, this way you are abstained from the outcome right? Always somebody else fault.
You told me what type person I am...let me return that for ya. Your one of the people that can't freaking stand people like me. You hate the fact I
think we're all equal...no matter the color of your skin. You hate the fact I attempted to be part of something that effects ALL OF US. Probably
because you think I choose the wrong side, the wrong color.
LOL like I said you had your preconceived notions about what racism is and is not before I even typed anything in this thread. You have been telling
me what kind of person I am for the last three or four of your posts Mr. holier than thou.
Human beings are tribal creatures. It pervades everything in our life and yet few people take notice. Politics, religion, sports, income, literally
everything. So why do people expect race or nationality to be any different? Somehow human nature is not going to apply to that one?
Central Louisiana has alot of different color people. Segregation ended here back in the 60's. Yet the black/white folks still have their side of
town. There are grocery stores, tire shops, muffler shops and laundrymats that the black people go to and the white people have the ones that they go
So why do you think that is? I mean BY LAW people can go and do what they want yet they still choose to have "their" stores and places they want to go
to for them? Because people are going to divide themselves up naturally one way or another. You say that TPTB use divide and conquer to great effect
(and I agree, they do) However people still will do it to themselves regardless because human beings brains and bodies EVOLVED to live in their small
familial tribes for millions of years and its only fairly recently in history that we are told its a bad thing to want to stick to your own tribe. Do
you really think that TPTB engineer all the division in this country themselves? LOL you give them far too much credit if you believe that. We do it
for them most of the time and never realize it.
To me, the only real tribe I have is my family. Black people and white people are both insane in different ways so I claim "other" when I have to fill
out forms and they ask me my race. Still, to me the black folks are wayyyy more racist around here than any of the white folks are.But I'm sure the
fact that I notice that will get me called a racist by Social justice warriors like you seem to be.
What went down in Ferguson with the police stomps on the face of our Constitution. I went their to support PEOPLE American citizens..regardless of the
color of their skin. Our Constitution starts by saying.......WE THE PEOPLE...not WE THE WHITE PEOPLE.
Hate to break it to you, but your constitutional rights are just an illusion. They aren't really rights. They are a list of temporary priveledges that
can be taken away at anytime deemed fit by those in authority. Its another one of those noble notions that in reality just does not apply. Just google
Japanese American internment 1942 if you don't believe me. That's just one example of a group of peoples constituional rights being taken away on a
whim and nobody ever saying anything ever about it. Happens all the time but it seems like its only noticed when they WANT you to notice it.
Really though I'm not sure why you keep arguing this point since I haven't even disagreed with anything you've said about it. Like I said, you had
your mind made up about me before I even wrote in this thread.
I'm German, Dutch & Irish...you can't get much more caucasin.
You don't say, I could tell without looking at you that you're white as they come.
