A Racist B-Cack Rant
I write to you today in a full state of sobriety, quite regrettably but I do have to go to work tomorrow. I am pretty upset still because of several issues that keep coming up in the media. First of all, I am shocked at how many people are jumping on the race card bandwagon with this whole hurricane Katrina disaster. First of all, let's not forget the premise that all white people are racist. Now, I wonder if Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson would be making such a big deal out of this if most of the people lost/stranded/ displaced were white? This is just the tip of the iceberg for me, I don't watch a whole bunch of TV, but when I do see some I am amazed at the open racism perpetrated against white people. (Ok, now is where everyone gets to call me a white supremacist and all that crap, whatever). So, have you ever noticed that anytime a certain credit card company shows "Bob" on vacation but it is really someone else who stole his card, or the old guy in a chair and it is the voice over of someone who sounds like a redneck, trailer dwelling she devil? My point is, all of the so called "thieves" were portrayed at white people, now I realize that crimes are committed everyday by every race, religion and sex on the planet... BUT what if it showed me struggling to pay my way through college while someone who doesn't speak English buys 17 cell phones with my credit card? Is that racist? Showing Mexican ladies (3 of them) paying their bills and buying almost 4,000 dollars worth of shit! Hmmm well it happened... WTF OVER?
Ok Part two, I recently heard an ad on the radio where an obviously white woman is renting a place and an obvious black guy is looking to rent it, long story short the lady says in her inner monologue "I don't want to rent it to him, he's black, it is so simple just say it is taken". Now, I have been a white guy (a.k.a. the devil) for all my life, and I don't think I have ever heard (not to say that it hasn't happened) anyone talk or act like that in my life. Now if you were to discuss how growing up as a white guy in an very Hispanic culture has its downfalls, I would be willing to bet the said white person has heard the terms "gringo", "maricon" (which does not mean American) " cavrone" and others..... My point being is that it is all too easy for anyone "non-white" to scream racism, when by the very act, they assume all white people are racist is the most racist act of all. Of course it is pick on whitey time in this nation. Don't believe me? Just look at the terms; In reference to one with dark skin we say "African-American" not black anymore. YET it is totally acceptable to call me white? I demand to be called Italian American. Speaking of backgrounds.... Although true some time ago, I would venture to say that if most of these "African-Americans" who claim to have arrived from slavery, if possible to prove their relatives were slaves, would have been in this country longer than mine, and therefore would be more American than I? CAN I PLEASE be called an Italian-American now? Can I claim civil unjust when I am called White? Look again into the media for example.(you may have to click on the pic to see it up close, but my point here is that it is some rather ethnically based artwork that is now considered "cute" by some people.) I would wager to say that if it were characteratures of Chinese people eating with chopsticks or Mexicans with low riders it wouldn't be so funny now would it? But some fat greasy dago whipping a pizza around is fun for the whole family??? Whatever, you all probably think I am some skinhead, Nazi, white supremacist... I am not... well almost skin headed but that is due to male pattern baldness...I have to go stomp some grapes and spin a pizza... B-Cack OUT
