I’m Not Racist But…

I’m Not Racist But…

There are some things that make me just want to go to an island where there is nothing but Black folks.

Stuff like this really gets my blood boiling:

And why do they always have to play that in school?? Get US all riled up and ready to fight the person sitting next to us?

Charleston is FULL of racism. Got White folks not wanting me to touch on them because they don’t want my black rubbing off on them.

Why was I driving home from school the other day and saw a sign that said “Coon hunt”?? We all know they were talking about raccoons!

When I worked at the airport, we had to screen a bag. Opened it up and found a ceramic figure in black face called “Nigger Bank”. WTF!?!?!

Another airport story… This lady was waiting for her flip flops to come out of the x-ray machine. They were taking a while to come out. She said, “somebody must want my shoes.”

I replied, “No, they’re just a little light.” (meaning they didn’t have enough weight to come out on their own.)

So, homegirl (Italian) says, “Oh, and you’re just a little black!”

WTF?!?!

Passengers and my coworkers were looking like WTF, grabbing stuff and getting out of the way.

I can’t remember exactly what I said but I was just as calm as can be. I told her that she must have some personal issues to be coming at me about race when all I did was comment on her shoes. Amerikkka was shocked that I responded so calmly as if that was rare for a Black woman. Basically I received a standing ovation for my calmness…LOL. Needless to say, my Caucasian supervisor was PISSED. She was shaking and everything. She called up law enforcement and wouldn’t let the woman fly until she apologized to me.

Now that I am getting all heated again just thinking about ish, I’ll go ahead and go to class.

Crazy White dude in the library looking up rifles and ish. Hope we don’t have a situation on our hands. If y’all see Trident Technical College in the news, pray for me! Either that or he’s about to hunt some “coons”.

Y’all have a good day today. Ignore ignorance.

Blessings & Prosperity!

This is Jewells signing out…
