I'm not going to talk about HIV/AIDS, or my job today and what not with all the controversy about Barak Obama, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Don Imus, and Michael Richards over the last few months and racism. I read below the following e mail and thought "WOW, this is sad but true!!"
The following words are not my words and I don't use some of these words:
PROUD TO BE WHITE
How many are actually paying attention to this?
There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, Arab Americans, Native Americans, etc.
And then there are just Americans
You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction. You Call me White boy, Cracker, Honkey, Whitey, Caveman. And that's OK.
But when I call you, Nigger, Towel head, Sand-nigger, Camel Jockey, Beaner, Gook, or Chink...
You call me a racist.
You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you, So why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?
You have the United Negro College Fund. You have Martin Luther King Day. You have Black History Month. You have Cesar Chavez Day. You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi You have the NAACP. You have BET.
If we had WET (White Entertainment Television) — We'd be racists.
If we had a White Pride Day — You would call us racists.
If we had White History Month — We'd be racists.
If we had any organization for only whites to "advance OUR lives" — You would call us racists.
We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce, and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce.
Wonder who pays for that?
If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships You know we'd be racists.
There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges in the US , yet if there were a "White college" THAT would be a racist college.
In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching For your race and rights. If we marched for our race and rights,
You would call us racists.
You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you're Not afraid to announce it. But when we announce our white pride.
You call us racists.
You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us. But, when a white police officer Shoots a black gang member or beats up a black drug-dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society. You call him a racist.
I am proud and white.
But, you call me a racist.
Why is it that only whites can be racists?Like I said those were not my words.
The above passages shows just how far we need to go to end racism, segregation, and discrimination.
I'm just wondering where standards stops and truths be known. I know if a black person was denied something on there race (which they shouldn't,) you would see Reverend Al Sharpton and Reverend Jessie Jackson all of CNN. When are they going to speak up about a white person being denied wanting to go to one of the over 60 black colleges in this country?
This country is over two hundred years old. This country needs to grow up and get back to basics like our forefathers. Our founding fathers stated "All men our created equal." I want to take it a step further saying "All people are created equal no matter what their race, sexual preference, men, women, ect!!"Call me idealistic I don't care.
I feel that Black, White, Asian, whatever history should all be taught equally and black history month abolished. It really burned my butt when I found out that on February 7 was black AIDS day. How can we as a society get past segregation when we want everyone to be equal but yet we are segregating, classifying ourselves in different categories all the time. There is only one classification for ourselves, WE ARE AMERICANS
. I'm proud to say "I'm a proud, white, gay male living with HIV/AIDS who would date any gay male of any race (as long as they are cute!!)
