Gee, I Guess I Must Be A Racist?
As of this writing, I am 59 years old, and I have to tell you in all those 59 years I have never heard the word racist as much as I have in the past 4 years. As a matter of fact I use that word nineteen times in this article and it is still more times than I have heard the word prior to the past four years.
It seems like every time I watch T.V. someone is calling someone else a racist for one reason or another. Ninety-nine percent of the time, it’s someone on the left calling someone on the right a racist. It seems if you disagree or have a different view than someone on the left, you are labeled a racist. I am convinced that the left uses that as a weapon to try to shut you up and make you back down from whatever the discussion might be. It’s funny though, I have noticed that someone on the left can say the same thing that someone on the right would be called a racist for, but they seem to get a pass. I guess people on the right are the only ones that can be racist.
So I decided to take a look at myself and low and behold I am a racist. (Well according to the left any way.) Here is a list of why I am considered a racist, according to the left.
1. I did not vote for Barack Obama. RACIST
2. I think he is doing a terrible job. RACIST
3. I am against affirmative action. RACIST
4. I hate rap music. RACIST On this I really think they should play rap music at Gitmo instead of water boarding, to me rap music is much more painful.
5. I have no black friends. RACIST I guess the left would like me to run around the city trying to find black people to be friends with. You know like George Castanza did in that Sienfield episode.
6. I believe illegal immigrants should be deported. RACIST
I am sure that the left can compile a much longer list. Just being a white, Catholic, republican, male is in itself reason enough to be called a racist these days. So it occurred to me no matter what a white, Catholic, republican, male says, he is going to be called a racist. So I said to myself why fight it? In my 59 years on this earth I have learned that everything is perception, One person is going to perceive you a racist, while another person (one with common sense) will perceive you not to be. So I have come to face the fact that no matter what I do I will be a racist. So I have decided that any time someone on the left calls me a name, I will wear it as a badge of honor. I believe the only reason the left calls people names it’s because they know it bothers them. Well I’m making a stand here and now. Call me what you will and I will agree with you. Whatever they call me, I will say “that’s right, what else have you got.” If they see it doesn’t bother you, eventually they will stop. I remember when I was a kid we had a saying, sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me. Ah to be a child again.
This is one man’s opinion.
