One day I had occasion to come to the school and was asked to listen to feedback on my son by the staff. The Nuns made me sit in a tiny desk/chair and marched my son in and proceeded to berate us because my son had brought, not a gun, not a BB gun, but a small instruction manual for a BB gun to class (we are black, my son refused to play football, lol).

I took my son out of that school and enrolled him in a free public high school the next day.


Not racist, just a really stupid group of adults.

And this - based on what you wrote, not racist at all...

You really think the adults had a problem because the kid was black? What about the white kid with the pop tart "gun", is that somehow racist too?


As far as the Mississippi judge speech, I'm not sure how anyone can say that the 3 murderers were anything but crazy racists.

Interesting thread. Back in 2012, I at a bar in Ft. Pierce, Florida. This was when hurricane Sandy was hitting NJ/NYC area. So CNN was on at the bar showing coverage of the hurricane. They go to a live press conference at the White House where Obama is speaking. The guy next to me who had been quiet since I got there slams his hand on the table. He is PISSED. He pulls a gun out and tells the bartender "Get this N!gger off the TV or I'll do it for you." The bartender must have been used to this because she was like "Oh relax, I'll change the channel." I finished my beer and left.

Just another rational, law-abiding gun owner whose guns would never hurt anyone.

Not exactly law abiding, but that doesn't matter to the "gun control" crowd.

Robert Jones, the grand dragon of the Loyal White Knights of the KKK spoke with AL.com Sunday afternoon and said about 4,000 KKK fliers have been distributed throughout Selma and Montgomery in the last two weeks.

"We pretty much put out fliers, some against King and some against immigration," Jones said. "It's time for the American people to wake up to these falsehoods that they preach about MLK."

Jones said bags containing a flier and a rock were thrown onto the doorsteps of people's homes as KKK members drove by. He said the rock acted as a paperweight, and the homes that received fliers were random.

Spank, you guys should just leave the fliers in people's mailboxes next time.

I was jumped at a bus stop by six guys, and they mentioned my race while leading up to it and during it. They did it for fun (they knew all I had was a bus transfer). I ran when I got a chance, into a nearby bank, and some even followed me into the glass hallway (3 did, but two ran after a couple seconds, one fought me all the way into the bank). The bank was all the same color as the people who jumped me (every worker and customer), and they ordered me out of the bank. I got the impression they didn't want to help me, and the guard even claimed he thought I may have "deserved it", he didn't "know for sure" if I did anything wrong. I told him to "**** off and call the police". He did. Then he wanted me to wait outside for the cops. I told him "**** you, you got the gun, you go outside first, I'll stand next to the door once you're out there". He wanted me out so bad he went outside and waited a few minutes until the cops came. They were asking me questions and I was dabbing blood from my busted lip when the lady selling hot dogs out front of the bank came over and said those same six guys maced her and robbed her two weeks earlier, and made the same racial remarks to her as me (she was the same race as me, pretty much). That was the last time I took a city bus.

I've also had multiple incidents where I was dating girls of other races and dudes would get salty about it, and run their mouths. Only once did it end up in a fight, and that one I didn't even do the fighting (there was 3 of them in a car, we came out of bar in the summer, the door to the bar was wide open, they talked **** and harassed us through several cycles of the stop light, waving people around them, and when they got out to jump me, they only got a few steps when the driveway next to bar emptied, full of people I knew with a tire iron, a chain, some bottles, etc...they beat the dudes a lil bit as they retreated into the car, but really ****ed the car up until they finally got away). It lasted like 10 seconds at most, and I remember jumping out of my skin when the breeze and bodies flew past me. I was ready to get jumped by 3 dudes, and then all these people just flew past, and at first I thought they had people behind me too. Then I realized it was all my people from inside the bar, and a few more (they just wanted to join in for the **** of it). It was funny afterward, but if those 3 guys would have gotten a few steps closer to me before retreating, they might have been beaten badly, or to death. One of my childhood friends that was there that night and beat the driver a little before he could get back in the car, and smashed the windshield and hood all up with the tire iron, he ended up in jail for attempted murder not long after that for bricking a dude until he was mentally disabled for life, and he just got out recently. I talked to him on FB, and that incident was one the first things he brought up. He was joking about it saying how lucky those dudes were because he wanted to kill them all. I believe it. Glad he didn't. I'd probably just be getting out too for accessory or whatever.

Anyways, this is funny:

There is as much racial tension in Ft. Pierce as anywhere I've been.

Preach brother.

A contractor who had called earlier about referring a job to me called back somewhat incoherently and probably drunk and asked whether this other person would have anything to do with the job. He said something like he doesn't want any "pointy ears" on the job and the only thing he knows about this guy is that he's Israeli.
03-31-2015 , 06:15 PM
Who are the "pointy ears" people? I've never heard that one.

I was skiing on Sunday and hit the pub for a few pints. Started chatting with an old guy (70-ish) at the bar and it turned out I was familiar with where he grew up. He seemed like a really nice guy until he went into a, "the place has really gone to hell now, you know, because of the immigrants," speech. Disappointing.

I don't know for sure. Really the only thing he knows about this guy is that he's Israeli. I'm thinking he means Jews. Vulcans?

A guy I work with sometimes will once in a while say something like this about a neighborhood and I just say I like Mexicans better than White people.

I got a guy at work who says the same things. I told him i hope the US goes bilingual and he doesn't bother me with that stuff anymore. Telling them to go back were they come form is fun too.

So my brother told me today that his baseball teammate from high-school that always told racist jokes, often played some song in his car very loudly with the windows rolled down that was about shipping African-Americans (the song used the n word) up north, said a bunch of random racist crap, had a big rebel flag on his car. and wasn't afraid to try to start a fight an AA over nothing is marrying an AA woman in 2 months.

Sorry for the randomness of the story and yes I know this isn't racism I was faced with (as the title of the thread suggests we should be talking about). I just thought it was interesting that someone that obviously hated a group of people so much is now marrying someone from that group.
04-02-2015 , 12:48 AM
It's obvious that he actually doesn't hate them, or he wouldn't be marrying a black girl.
04-02-2015 , 03:43 PM
Teenagers trolling with racism in an attempt to be funny or impress people is not always 'genuine' racism, though it could be an expression of some implicit bias. It could have helped that person grow up by realizing they had previously behaved like such a fool, perhaps. Making mistakes is a fine and proven way to develop self-awareness.
04-02-2015 , 07:20 PM
It's because the idiot approach to this subject is either someone is a racist or not. It's more complicated than that. As I've said multiple times, people can say racist things (or things that are perceived as) and not be racist.

In this particular case I wouldn't give the person the benefit of the doubt very much. There is obviously some sort of racism going on, but the level of it isn't as high as someone would think on the surface, I mean, he's marrying a black woman for god's sake, so he can't be complete in his racism.

Whatever. Let Fly and Wookie deal with it.
04-02-2015 , 07:41 PM
The notion that you are only racist if you are completely racist is pretty lol.
04-02-2015 , 07:45 PM
I live in the Philippines. Lots of racists have Asian wives/ girlfriends.
