This does not go into this Section of Threads if someone could help me find a place for this ... I am sorry ... I acidentally posted this here
Me and some of my friends were sitting around at the Casa, the other day and we got into a discussion of some really odd but good stuff. I have met
and hung out with a couple of these people before ... one of them I had never met.
I am not going to go into that much detail but we were talking about different races. I had told them I had just got back from Wal-Mart and was
talking about this hispanic family that was in line and there were 12 of them standing in a line not in a group but in a line making the line at the
store look Extremely long. But I noticed all of them talking to each other and realized they were all together so I went and stoof behind them as the
other lines were extremly long ... But ddin't appear to be as long as this one. Well their time came and they all went through the register they were
all holding at least one item. (Was rather Funny to watch).
Anyhow back on subject ... Just thought you guys should know how this conversation piece started. So you know that this was brought up in a Round
about way and noone in the conversation was offended. There was me(white), my fiancee(white), my sister (white), my sisters b/f (black/brown) , his
two friends (black/mexican)(Black), and then there were two other people some aquaintances of mine who play on my co-ed softball team. I think they
are kinda liking each other or something not sure ... anyways ... They are both Males ... One is white and the other is Caramel ... I think Cuban.
We get into this discussion about why Mexicans like to have so many children and so forth and it finally gets to White people and what you think about
certain races of people ... I was wondering are we all Racists in this group because we all came to the conclusion that a Black man Acting White ...
is very far and few between. But whenever we thought of Black people we mainly thought of the lifestyles of Rappers and Yo, What's up dawg? Although
that is how we speak to each other ... When we thought of a White person we thought of some people that say ... Howdy ... or How are you today, Sir ?
When we thought about Mexican people ... They were the funniest actually when talking about thierselves ... It was almost like they even thought that
the True Mexicans were really funnt ... Saying ... Y, Essaay ... Que Honda .... Wueeeee or Fueeee .. Not sure how to spell it .. Anyways ... I thought
it was an interesting conversation one of the most interesting I have ever had in my life.
But whenever I was going to sleep last night I started recalling all of these things and thought to myself ... WoW ... That was so Racist ... Although
I didn't feel any animosity towards each other or probably ever will and realize that is was a friendly conversation.
I still found myself wondering ... Was that Racist !?!? To talk about a certain Race like we did ... Even if there were an equal amount of input from
all sides ... That doesn't necisarily mean that it was not a racist Conversation just possibly there were some weaker opinions in the room. Or
maybe/possibly someone felt under criticism so they just went along ?? Any OPINIONS on this !??!?!??!
I would love to hear ....
