I will say this much, many things are not said that should be. Many things are said that shouldn't be. I will not apologize for anything I say but I am willing to say that I understand and concede to not make my point at your expense. But I ask you to read this. I ask you, if you are choosing to be offended or are you truly offended? If you said that you are truly offended, I want you to look at that. To get through this life, intact, you need to be like an onion, thick skinned with many layers. Otherwise, you're boiled down to the bone, the very core, quick and in a heart beat. We all will never get along completely. You are different than I and I am different, maybe even strange to you. If I choose to be hurt by your ignorance of that, then I will be. Maybe the joke is "off color" but do you choose to take offense? Do you choose to be offended? I mean really, you can choose to move on and call me a racist. Or, you can choose to be light hearted and laugh at what is laughable. Why do I not get offended when broached with white jokes, name calling and such? It is because I choose not to be offended. For those of you that do choose to be "hurt" by a simple joke, well, I'll expect you to take a look at that. I am Lakota Sioux and Irish. Do you know how many jokes I hear and even worse about how I am not to be trusted with liquor as I might scalp somebody. Now really, should I take offense. No, I think it's rather funny.
But I do not choose to offend and am going to pull the joke from this post. I sure hope you take your beliefs and values and apply them to something more important. Take that backbone it took to tell me that I am so wrong and put it to a better cause.
Racism is commonly defined as a belief or doctrine where inherent biological differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, with a corollary that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.I was called a racist. I never thought of myself that way. I don't think my best friend and recently ex house mate, Kim, who is black, would agree. I have trained and been responsible for countless men and women, of all nations and color and I've never been called a racist. Now, I have been called an asshole, whore, slut pig bitch and I'll cop to it but you have me wondering about the racist label.
