You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction. You call me 'White boy,' 'Cracker,' 'Honkey,' 'Whitey,' 'Caveman'.... and that's OK.
But when I call you, Nigger, Kike, Towel head, Sand-'n-word', Camel Jockey, Beaner, Gook, or Chink .. You call me a racist.
I have been wondering about why Whites are racists, and no other race is.....

"For years, I have been denied my rightful place in the world. I have been treated as inferior. I have been abused. I have been seen as "lesser". Now, I am standing up and saying that I am worthy. I am as good as you, regardless of my condition. I will claim my space and no longer allow you to dictate my position to me. I am ______ (gay - for example) and since you won't allow me to be myself in your parade, I will form my own. Or I am black and since you won't hire me to be on your television station, I will make my own. Or I am Hispanic and proud. Since your Chamber of Commerce won't address the needs of my community, we will form our own. Or, I am a woman. And since you won't admit me into your college, we will form our own."
You see, the minorities didn't start this separation attitude. They were excluded by white people. So they started their own. And then the white people call them racist for being "separatist"... It would have been so much better if they had just stayed in their place, huh? And not come out claiming this and that for themselves...
That's my take on the email.
