I believe at the moment there is much racial tension. I do feel that Blacks call racism much more than whites do and that some throw it around
carelessly not thinking of the consistence.
I think that whites feel they are losing equality do to the lack of ability to speak up for them selves without being called racist. We are not aloud
to be proud. We are told we must have had struggle to be proud. I find this to be silly. We all have the right to be proud of who we are.
Minorities are almost allowed to talk bad about whites and we are basically banned from sticking up for our selves. I want my tri-racial children to
grow up in a world were every one has the right to stand up for them selves and I don't want them thinking that only they have the right to pride
since its hard for them to find their place in a group.
Being in an interracial couple opens the minds of both involved. I understand more about her situation of being looked down upon because of her skin
color. She also understands more about how white people are looked down upon because of our skin color as well. Not because I have brain washed her to
do so but because she has seen first hand.
We walk a fine line on acceptance and intolerance. She has spoken with blacks that have accepted her until they found out who I was. The same thing in
~ funny story. When I was locked up for a pot charge, I was a cell mate with a kkk member. Not knowing who my wife was, treated me with respect. I one
day got a picture of her in the mail all sexed up. He asked to see her so I said sure and handed him the picture. He looked at it and looked at me
like I was crazy. He then took a double take of her with confusion and said " WTF is she doing with the likes of you? She could have done
I guess even the most racist of white men can't help but like a beautiful brown girl lol
All joking aside. I was also treated badly from both the black and white cell mates (Nothing serious just talked to me less) after I had came out
about my love.
The blacks were mad that a white man has stolen an other one of their woman and the whites were mad that I was interbreeding. I was pretty well
cautious when walking past the all black cell block accross from mine because every time I did I was heckled about being a little white boy, called
names and offered black %^&* in my @$$ many times. I was also threatened to be stabbed many times by them.
The thing is, any black men walking by the all white blocks would get heckled all the same. After being in there I really saw that BOTH whites and
blacks are EQUALLY as racist as each other.
There is no difference besides that whites feel afraid to stand up for them selves about it. I definitely see that changing since the Martin Zimmerman
case. Zimmerman isn't even a white man. Be we got the grief for it. We were blamed.
There is racial tension right now....... And lots of it.
