Hey everyone, did you hear the good news? Racism is over! The recent ruling on the Voting Rights Act has combined in a lovely cocktail with everything they've told me on Fox News, so now I know the truth. Racism is over.
More black men are imprisoned today than were held in bondage during the height of slavery, but racism is over.
Black President? Racism is over.
You can follow and assassinate, then claim self defense, but racism is over.
If you waited twice the average time to vote, you might be a minority. Good thing that racism is over.
Sing a song.
Sing out loud, sing out strong. Just don't sing while Mexican, or Puerto Rican or whatever the hell non-English speaking country you come from. Like New York. But thankfully racism is over.
As a baby Godwhacker I grew up in a world where racism, sexism and homophobia were common place. Wise beyond my years, I knew that it all came from the same defective reasoning ~ the ignorant fallacy "that one kind of man was superior to another kind of man".
Being a gay man, I'm like a stealth minority. I didn't survive in the 1980s military without being able to hide my gayness. Put a little southern twang in my voice, and racists think I'm one of them. I have fun on my little recon missions into their conversations. What I find completely refutes the idea that racism is over. It's better hidden, for sure. Racists have the 'good sense' not to voice their prejudices openly. Usually.
We have made progress, but despite that progress racism is alive and well. It's not going to go away on it's own. We can't click our Ruby Slippers and make it go away. But like all problems, it first has to be acknowledged before we can find real solutions.
And for Godwhacker's sake, don't flirt with a barmaid while Hispanic. You'll only get what you deserve.
