I'm racist because instead of demanding someone else pay for my utilities, blame other people for something that happened to an ancestor, and saying
that I cannot get my butt to college because I'm poor, I actually worked hard to find the job I have, pay for the apartment I live in, and treat all
people equally. Oh, and my ancestry is German, Irish, and Native American, but you don't see me blaming Hitler or the USA for the hardships I'm going
through today. I do blame ITT Tech though.
I am racist because I will never truly understand the meaning of poor, despite having to walk a mile to school every morning on my own, and having
less food, clothes, and everyday items for me to use. Not to mention watching everyone else I knew get newer tech, cars, and their own apartments. But
never mind that, I'm not poor.
I am racist because I have this aversion to using a special term used as an excuse. "White Privilege" sure
helped me with all those tickets I
got (first time too!), and it had a measurable
impact on my dismal grades in highschool. It makes me feel safe
when going through the
outskirts of Detroit.
And lastly, I'm racist because I treat everyone as they treat me.
