I may get BLASTED for this...but I posted this reply on the comment section of an online news source....

This morning on my walk to the Howard Redline stop in the Rogers Park neighborhood in Chicago, IL.....I was called out to by a black woman: "Hey, F* YOU, White B#tch!" The sad part, because I had to stop acting and looking scared a few years back when I first MOVED to this hood, (sometime after Obama became King), is that I am USED to this kind of thing, so I started to giggle after that outburst...yes, the abuse got worse ...but...I get this at least once a week when I walk to the store, to the EL....to the bank......so (shrug).

I have never called a black man or woman a 'n-word'...I bet I get blasted or removed or censored for that...but I get called whitey, hillbilly and a myriad of other race specific names all the time and how is THAT any different then ME using the "N" word, (oh how wimpy)...(Anyways, I'm a Cracker, let's get THAT straight!).

I have even been assaulted for being white and standing up for myself...(I am a female, by the way....so, I have OTHER stories about my lovely experiences living in CHICAGO...the next Detroit, in my opinion and the way things are going....)

So please tell me how am I a racist? I grew up in Texas and never had problems or saw violence between different races, religions, political beliefs, etc...nor had violence perpetrated against me while living there...not even in El Paso, TX!! (well maybe I just didn't understand Spanish racial slurs because I didn't know Spanish at the time).....Since I came here to the Windy City? Well, you read the above rant....

So tell me again how I am a racist?

My LAST question is: WHEN DID AMERICA come to such a SAD STATE?

Because you are white. All white people are racists.

Oh and those that called you those names arent racists, thats just simply not possible.

Just deal with it and make sure you don't vote Trump.

Being white is the Original Sin of this new far left religion. You are the devil because of the color of your skin.

New hate group, same sad racism.

Couple that with the continued getto-fication of America (not ethnically specific) and we can see the breakdown of the social element of society.

Unfortunately it's human nature. I'm mixed and have lived in both predominantly white and black areas and have caught it from both sides. It's because you're different and stand out so you end up being the convenient vehicle to vent whatever inherent frustrations people have. You haven't said anything in your post to allude to you being racist.

Sorry ya have to go through it. Hopefully you'll meet good people there that show you they're not all the same.

You're racist because everybody is a little bit racist. White people. Brown people. Green people. Beige people.

It's just how we evolved. We feel comfortable with our own tribe, and those of other tribes disturb us.



But historically if you're asking why the Black lady isn't called a racist even though she clearly was racially abusing you, then it's the historical question. Your ancestors weren't held as slaves, her ancestors were. This grants generational privilege. It sucks sometimes, in situations like these, but that's just how it is when atrocities are committed in the not too distant past.

To the OP. Not sure who called you racist and why you ask the question like you do. We don't know you so how the hell would we know.

The black woman that called you a "White B*tch" for no reason. She's racist. Now if you also call her a 'n-word' simply because she's black, then you're racist too. If not then I guess not until further information.

Sometimes it's hard to tell Racism from other forms of bigotry though. Racism can also be subtle too. Like thinking Asians are all good at math. Or all Irish like to fight and drink.

Personally, from what little you gave us to go on you sound alright to me. One thing about overt racists like you describe though is that they are often very ignorant people who have listened to too much propaganda that support their bias and have little out side experience to tell them different. Chicago is going through an especially rough patch lately as well which I'm sure brings out the worst of a lot of people.

No it's not and nothing is part of any far left agenda nor is there such a religion. At best it's the agenda of a few radicals who are given a voice and now people think they speak for some large group of some kind. But most people don't believe anything they are saying.

Many white people Died ending slavery, but we outlawed slavery, You would think Black people would say, thanks, mighty decent of you. Millions of people are enslaved, right now many as Sex slaves. The Africans sold other Africans.Still do.White people aren't the problem, We ended slavery. Your not slaves. So get off my back.

The op's experiences are why people are generally happier among their own kind.

Must be just great to put up with that rubbish on a regular basis when just minding your own business.
S and F just for not boiling over and going mental.

Maybe because there is only one usage of the word N*gger but the others can be used without a derogatory meaning. Like cracker could mean a cracker and there is no way for the machine to know your context.

Personally, I don't believe in censoring any words, but I'm giving you a reasonable answer besides some conspiracy.

And that's why people Black people can't be racist. That's the excuse I constantly hear and it's wrong. Op wasn't there and the racist Black lady wasn't there. No one alive today is responsible for something that happened 200 years ago and using that as an excuse is BS.
