So, I came across a quote today which left me pretty much speechless. I know some people just don’t get it, and I shouldn’t be surprised when I hear about them (especially when they’re in the Southern U.S.). A white kid at a high school wore a shirt with a picture of a couple black people being dragged behind a jeep in nooses. Naturally, another (black) kid took offense to this, and punched him upside the head. The white kid didn’t see what the big deal was; he was interviewed, and offered up this introspective gem:
“I’m not racist or anything,” he said. “It’s just, some people I hate, some people I don’t get along with. And black people just happen to be the ones because they think they’re better than everyone else.”
Well junior, I am truly sorry to be the one to tell you, but that is pretty much racism defined. I’m sure that conversely, you don’t think you’re better than them because they think they’re better than you. Gah! It’s probably good he moved on to a community college, because he obviously wasn’t learning a whole lot elsewhere.
My brain is still a-goggle. How do these people breed and survive? Oh, and it was really nice to hear he was planning to be a Marine. I know I’d feel better if they gave this half-witted Cletus a gun.
