Why is it that only white people can be racist?
If a [insert your favorite "color" here] doesn't like white people, it's because they've been oppressed, or mistreated, or blah blah blah blah ..
there's always a good reason and it's not racism.
But if a white person dislikes anyone, it's ALWAYS racism (unless, of course, it's another white person.)
I can't dislike a Mexican because he came into this country illegally, it has to be because he isn't white.
I can't dislike a black because he's in a gang, plays awful music too loud, refuses to speak "normal" English, and threatens me if I walk too
close to him. No, it HAS to be racism. Sure, whine about what happens when you go to the white side of town .. would you like to be a white person and
hit the black side of town? No, I didn't think so ... it's a good way to get killed.
I am sick and tired of you being able to get away with calling me a racist just because I'm white. Hey, I didn't ASK to be born white, you know.
You can have black pride, and Latino pride, and red pride .. etc. etc. but let me DARE say I'm proud to be white and .. BAM! .. I'm a racist.
The reality is, most of us like to hang with our own kind. Birds of a feather flock together. Generally speaking, my socializing is mostly done with
whites. Most of the black people I know socialize with blacks. Mexicans tend to have Mexican friends. It's okay for everyone EXCEPT me, the white
racist, if I don't happen to have a bunch of black, brown, red, yellow, and green friends.
I don't care what color Obama is, I don't like him because he's wishy-washy, insincere, and a politician.
If all y'all non-whites want to be EQUAL, get down off the racism horse and let's be equal. Stop hiding behind "if you don't like me it's because
I'm not white" and take responsibility for your personality, your actions, and your character - the REAL reasons I don't like you if I don't. Stop
taking favors from the government and compete with me for jobs based on merit instead of color. Stop pointing your finger at me and screaming "white
supremacist" every time I happen to do something better than you. Stop with the "white men can't jump" stuff and I'll stop with the "blacks
don't do as well in school" stuff. Deal?
And stop hating on whites. It is racism whether you want to think it is or not. We don't deserve to be judged by color any more than anyone else
does, but you don't stop to think about that.
