APPARENTLY I’M A RACIST.
I know that this subject has been commented upon many, many times, but after seeing a couple of interviews recently I found myself becoming rather agitated. So please bear with me.
I’m not sure why I deserve to be branded as such (well I do actually) because, to my my knowledge and memory I haven’t done anything racist in my life. I’ve done other stuff of which I’m not particularly proud, but never anything racist.
The reasons for my relegation to the morally challenged group have been been confirmed by several politicians. I’m not going to mention their names because I don’t believe they deserve the publicity. In fact I think they should all be gagged.
Nevertheless it seems that I’m a racist because I’m white. That’s it. Nothing else. In their eyes I am a white man and, by virtue of that fact, I am ipso facto a racist
I find those accusations very offensive because I honestly have never separated people by race, gender, sexual orientation or political beliefs – and anything else for that matter.
All I’ve ever wanted to do is to spread love and happiness.
Okay I’ve had a few rants about corruption and mismanagement of state owned businesses but that hardly qualifies me as a racist does it?
And I’m not alone. My friends (black and white or whatever) tend to share my views.
I’ve employed many people during my career and I’ve never, ever, not hired someone because of their race, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, gender or age. On reflection I may have shown some slight bias towards pretty girls but, hey that’s what normal guys do.
I can’t help being white but I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I’m going to spend the rest of my life apologising for being so – and paying taxes so that many others less fortunate than myself can get some financial relief from the government – provided the rulers of our country don’t grab it all first and hide it away in China or somewhere else ghastly.
But seriously, why does it always seem that only white people are racists and black people the victims? I don’t understand the logic. When a politician says, in public, that “all white people are thieves and should be thrown out of their homes” then I don’t think that’s very nice. In my opinion they really ARE the racists.
Why not try friendship and harmony for a change? Be kind and considerate to others. It might just make big changes to our society.
