footprints

I just left a few tracks on a couple of blogs that I read regularly. I also received some feedback from idiots, too.

I LOVE IT when someone from Canada, who probably sees a black person once every three years tells ME about how black people think. How the hell would YOU KNOW? The workforce I supervise is 75% black, and MY ASS is on the line for being a racist every time I attempt to disciple one of them. Ever been THERE, Jane? I reckon not.

I have. So don't sit on your frozen Canadian ass and tell ME about racism in the Deep South. That weathervane has turned 180 degrees. Now, blacks cry "RACISM!" any time they fuck-up and the burden is on YOU to prove that you're NOT a racist.

Live with THAT SHIT for 23 years. THEN tell me how smart you are.

Heh. You won't last 30 days. The pirhanas will eat you for lunch.

That's the difference between a bleeding-heart liberal and ME. I understand my fellow man.

DOH!

I'm gonna have to keep my eye on this one for the feed back.

Grab some popcorn, and watch the fireworks.

Oh give me a huge horking break with the "nobody knows the troubles I've seen in Dixie" bullshit.

My province is called The Missisissippi of the North and is cited by Amnesty INternational for longstanding racism and bigotry against aboriginal people. Know anything about that, Mr. King o' Race Relations?

And I never said a fucking thing about racism....read for content.

Whew....I feel better now. Thanks, Aicdman!

Jane, you can vent on ME anytime. I like your style. (Even if I DO believe that you are full of crap).

Love and kisses....

ya know, and somehow after reading this, I really just don't feel sorry for you having to live with that 'shit' for 23 years, not in the least.. not one iota... poor child.

Being around Black folks at work says absolutely nothing about your knowledge of the culture. For example, I read your idiotic musings on another blog allegedly proving Af-Ams are a monolith. Applying the same logic (HA!), I believe 70% of 'White' males voted Republican in the last presidential election. Talk about your groupthink.

Putting aside the other condescending remarks for a minute, you ought to consider yourself blessed to supervise anyone with your level of literacy. But I guess education doesn't count when you're 'discipling' (?) people.

Odd, MIB, he writes better than one of my english teachers. Might be able to use a bit more care in TYPING what he is writing, but who doesn't every once in a while? (Although I keep wanting to write a report on the use of dialect and putting the spoken word on paper.....)

I work with a large number of 'minorities', and even if they don't look for racisim when they're treated the same, people above or outside *will*. It's a pain in the ass, for the shop and for the individual.

Funny... as a female, you're considered a 'minority' too. Are you or the rest of the women you know so hypersensitive that every perceived slight is followed by a filing at your local EEOC office?

I didn't think so.

Of course the irony here is Americans' minds are polluted by racism to the point we're unable to see the extent of the damage. A-man's rant may be dismissed as hyperbole, but its underlying tone reeks of extreme ignorance, even about himself. Then, he asks our pardon while demonstrating everyone how much he knows about Blacks with the 'All Blacks Think Alike' theory.

That's a little too transparent for me. Given his weak-kneed cries of victimization, I'd bet if he had to live 1 month as a Black man in this country, he'd kill himself.
