I shouldn't do it, you know, read the comments following online stories that have to do with black people. Heidi and Seal. The POTUS.
In Washington, a lady had acid thrown in her face. The story mentioned that the police were looking for a black woman and all the crazies and racists and such came crawling -- no, not crawling, they were a more rabid bunch, so "crawling" is the wrong word--they slithered, closer maybe ('cause well their rhetoric is so much like the original serpent Satan)
anyway some white people are just plain (when I was first typing that, it came out Palin-- ha! Freudian slip?) ignorant.
ESPECIALLY when they say:
Blacks should go back to Africa. Learn some history, stupid. Many did, many tried. Civil War costs ended a program doing such. Had I been there, I certainly would have got my return ticket. But after a certain point, like when white men were raping African women and impregnating them, people could no longer claim to be African. They were part white ( like the POTUS!!!) And like Frederick Douglass, who balked at Lincoln's plan to send all blacks, somewhere anywhere, I think when you're born in America, you're American. And they come in all colors-- get over it.
Blacks are all criminals. Generalizations aren't very arguable. Like "White people are all . . . "
One of my favorite: This is our country. HA! 'Cause you stole it fair and square??????
And another favorite: We built this country. BULLSH*T. We built this country. Most of y'all stood around, oh, I mean "supervised."
I really need to not read those comments. They get me all riled up.
And don't get me wrong. . . 'cause some of my best friends (hey, even my kids, in part) are white. . .
