It’s kind of amazing how moving from one state to another changes your outlook on racism. The first time my family took the trip to Louisiana it was such a surreal experience to be sitting in the middle of a McDonald’s some where in Texas waiting on your number to be called and watching a black boy take a man his food just to get slapped in the face with racial slurs by an uptight, old white man.
People back in California act like racism is a concept that has long since been forgotten. Albeit, school was a lot more diverse in California and Texas is generally chalked full of a bunch of old, white people who don’t drive very well.
Anyway, I deliver pizza for a living and the other night one of my co-workers ran over someone’s dog. The man called the store complaining (and rightfully so) but in doing so he asked the guy who answered the phone if he was ‘a nigger because I can’t understand you’. I’m appalled by the people I’m surrounded by, I’m sickened that that behavior is acceptable in the south because ‘they were raised that way’, and I’m so sorry that I’ll never have to feel sorry for the color of my skin because I was born white.
