Anyway, I had gone to WalMart tonight for some groceries and upon leaving I was wheeling my cart across the parking lot to my car and a family, who just happened to be black had finished loading there purchases into their car that was parked next to mine. The father, or who I think was the father, in front of his two kids, pushed his cart into the side of my car loud enough for me to hear it from several yards away... I stopped in disbelief. The man turned around and noticed me, raised his fist in the old Black Panther, 1960's style Black Power fist and shouted:
My only crime, besides being a 40-something white guy? My car still sports a McCain~Palin bumper sticker.
What the FUCK!
It's not like I have a new vehicle. I drive a 1992 Lincoln... Not the nicest car in the lot. But it's mine, I paid for it and it runs pretty good. I never did a damn thing to this motherfucker and I've never seen him before today. Did I fucking deserve that? This wasn't a thug~type black guy and family either. He looked middle-class like me, nice vehicle and even had the same Labor Union decal on his car... He most probably works for the same company I do, we're Union Brothers. But still...
I bit my tongue and loaded my groceries into my newly dinged car and drove home, fuming on the event. I'm so goddamn sick of this shit...
In my 43 years I've had more fucking racism shoved down my throat that I care to repeat. All against me, because I'm a fucking white guy. But time and time again, I'm the fucking racists. Well, tell you what! I'm fucking sick to death of it!
I digress. here's what I wasn't going to blog about because I'd be labeled a racist. And it took place at the very WalMart I was at tonight.
I shit you not.
A few days after the election last November, a black woman went into WalMart and loaded her shopping cart up with well over $300 of groceries... And decided to walk out of the store without paying. Security went after her and the police were called... She felt she had a right to the groceries. When asked to pay for them, she replied:
"I don't hafta pay for em! Theyz be free!"
Officer Friendly: "Ma'am, you've got to pay for them!"
Woman: "I don't hafta pay for em! Obama be'z in da Whitehouse now! He'z gonna take care of us now! We'z gettin' all our groceries fo' free!"
What tha fuck! George Bush was still President, but yet, the Savior, The God King Obama, The New Messiah, was going to pay for her groceries now.
Needless to say the woman went to jail. Of course because we whiteys have been oppressing her for so long. She's a political prisoner in her mind no doubt.
I'm so fucking sick of this... I'm sick of Obama, Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, The Black Panthers, Nations of Islam and the rest of their ilk. Beside all the Socialist programs and our money being spent in untold trillions for bullshit social programs everything I've worked for my entire life is going to be spent away to the point they'll be nothing left when I retire...
But I'm a racist just because I just so happened to be born a white male. I remember something my grandmother told me when I was very young, because she died when I was about 5 or 6... When she came from Ireland in the early 1900's she remembers seeing signs...
Irish Need Not Apply!"
Don't you fucking talk to me about oppression and slavery. My family wasn't even here before the late 1800's. We had no part in the American Civil War. I owe no reparations, don't fucking ask for any from me. You want to talk about slavery and oppression? Ask the Irish and the Scottish about the 300 years or so from the British.
