A friend of mine from work at the Sheriffs Office and I have had a few talks about race. Being white I am always open to hearing the thoughts of all
minorities. My fellow Deputy is black and told me something I never thought of until about a year ago when he mentioned this to me. He said "Rob
you aren't racist, your a classist."
What is a classist? It is a person who has morals, manners, follows & respects laws, respects his fellow man regardless of skin color or culture, and
does not judge others, he/she allows those others actions to speak for themselves. A classist is a person who can't stand someone who collects
welfare yet has gold wrapped around their necks and wears new sneakers regardless of their race. A classist gets upset when he is at work for 40, 50,
60 hours a week busting his/her butt to pay bills, have insurance, and put a roof over their heads...yet every pay day we have money taken from us
because their are people out there, OF ALL RACES, who refuse to work..but they will be seen in night clubs, refuse to work but somehow always have a
roof over their heads, and oddly enough even have nice cars/trucks to take them anywhere...as long as it's not to work! I wonder where they get all
A classist does not dictate by skin or culture, we dictate by your contribution. Are there legitimate reasons that some people need assistance, OF
COURSE, but are those same resources being abused and used by just fat, lazy, scumbags? Sure are...and they are of all races, colors, and creeds!
I have to laugh EVERYTIME something happens people scream racism...and quite frankly its getting old. I had a man tell me the other day after I
pulled him over for doing 67 in a 25 that I only did it because he was black. It almost made me laugh...I said "sir, the fact that your were doing
40 miles an hour over the speed limit may have had A LITTLE something to do with it." But of course he said I was just another white guy holding the
black man down. Now for all you minority folks out there...lets get this out of the way right now......
UNTIL I (i am white) make more money and have a nicer house and life then EVERY black, hispanic, asian, mexican, etc etc etc...in this country...SHUT
THE F*** UP ABOUT BEING HELD DOWN!!!! YOU held yourself down! Their are people in all levels of power, all levels of wealth, in every level of
life from different races and colors....so I don't wanna hear it!
So the next time someone calls you a racist, just remember...its not always about race....some of us are fed up with EVERYONE....if your a black man
wearing gold fronts but not paying child support on your 4 kids your a dirtbag, if your white guy who is collecting checks from welfare and other
programs because your a piece of s*** I do not like you, if your hispanic and can afford your pimped out honda civic but won't pay your rent/morgage
don't cry race when your booted out into the street! Race to me is an excuse for those who want the easy road out or the easy way to the top...thats
Ok now your thoughts...just curious if there are any others out there who believe its NOT about race, its about the person/people and their actions!
