Everyone knows a racist. They’re everywhere. People that have no real reason to hate other races, they just do. They say awful, hurtful, and hateful things. When you call them on it, instead of presenting an argument, they attack you, calling you a sympathizer, or, as in this case I’m about to display, a sheep. Like there’s some war going on that only they are aware of.
Yesterday, a guy named Brett Chapman (on Facebook, so that MAY not be his real name) posted a very racist comment publicly on a photo of a black man eating a hamburger. I sent him a message calling him out on being racist. It may have been a bit over the top on my part, but I’m a passionate guy. He replied today. As you’d expect, he spouted hate at me, then false facts to “support” his belief that black people are, in his own words, “sub human”.
I’m actually going to post the entire conversation here.
The conversation started Friday.
He didn’t reply until the next day. When he did, he had the predictable ‘attack him’ mentality.
Don’t be proud
I, of course, felt compelled to reply.
Your race doesn’t want you.
Seriously, if you’re going to be ignorant, I know I don’t want to be responsible for you.
Maybe you can smoke crack with them and cash your welfare cheques together
That doesn’t even make sense.
I can’t believe a person can still be as ignorant as you.
Have a nice life, dick.
Now, I fully intended to ignore him after this, as I knew there was no reasoning with him. He is clearly damaged. But then he said this:
Go lick some black butt you white sheep
Now, I’ve never been called “Lardarse” before… except every day of elementary school… and jr. high school… and high school… and, well, you get the picture. So I replied, more curious than ever what makes him so hateful.
You have no idea how the world works.
And your jokes are the same as a 2nd graders. Again, be proud.
He takes the bait. His response doesn’t blatantly say it, but the subtext I read here is “I’m scared of them” essentially.
Dude I know exactly how the world works, you have lived too long with rose colored glasses on. Walk through Uniacke square, North Preston or North end Dartmouth up around Pinecrest at night and see what happens?
I’ve worked as a correctional officer and see all the scum that comes and goes, and trust me, it is mainly black
You’re a sheep bud. Be proud.
I just don’t get this attitude. At all. He kept calling me a sheep, but he had it backwards. Education and understanding make me a free thinking shepherd. Having knowledge makes you powerful. This guy, lacking the aforementioned knowledge, was really the blind follower.
Likely because people like you don’t give them the same opportunities because the color of their skin.
You’re the sheep. As far as society is concerned, you’re the black sheep at that. Ironic…
This is where he reverted back to blanket racist clichés without facts, and more personal attacks on me.
Yeah right, opportunities are based on qualifications not skin color. Even with all the free handouts blacks get, they still couldn’t get their act together to save the slice of watermelon on this planet.
Figures you would be on their side, go back to your self hating flagellation you liberal
You should have been the load of sperm your dad shot down your mom’s throat instead of in her cunt.
Yeah. He’s an idiot. I guess I’ll break the news to him.
Yeah. You’re an idiot. This conversation is over. You’re clearly one of the few remaining broken brains in this country.
Until you realize that as human beings we are all on the SAME side, you’ll forever be a piece of shit not worth talking to.
Have a nice life.
At this point, I was TRULY done speaking with him. Especially when his reply was this:
I didn’t reply. And that’s where this conversation ended. But I’d like to continue that discussion here.
Seriously, folks… in this day and age, how can ANYONE be this ignorant and backwards to think that this is based on race? No offence, but Spryfield has some predominantly white neighbourhoods with equally poor inhabitants, that rely on welfare, have drug issues, and the rest. It’s not a race issue. It’s a circumstance issue. We need not fix the “race” problem to get rid of hoodlums and crime… we need to fix the “poverty” problem.
I’m proposing a movement. Starting right here, right now. We can call it “IRONIC TOLERANCE” and the basic mantra should be “The only thing we don’t tolerate is intolerance”.
WHO IS WITH ME?
