"Well yeah, hating black people would be racist, but hating fags is, like, idealistic."
I wanted to fucking punch that clueless little shit right in his arrogant pimpled mouth... But I had a delivery to make and wanted to keep my job. So I mumble "are you fucking kidding dude?" just soft enough that he likely didn't hear/understand... subtle facepalm before making a crack about how I hate all people from Mexico because I disagree with their lifestyle. Dumbfuck finds that funny as well... so do I.
Same kid had come back from a delivery earlier that night looking distraught... I ask him if the girl from the delivery was cute (I knew it was a gay dude, we were flirting on the phone when I took his order). Kid shakes his head and tells me about the effeminate gay dude he had to have a brief encounter with... "Aww dude I'm sorry. Did you get touched in that bad way, is that why you look so down?"... kid tells me about how he could've probly taken this particular fag, and makes a crack about how he probably couldn't have raped him in their 9 second encounter. "9 seconds would be a personal best for me", I say... laughs.
We're all racist to some extent.
I always work to keep my mind open and not pre-judge anyone. But that is impossible. I've been fed stereotypes and racist myths about alien cultures since birth. I can't help my fears, and I don't blame others for being as weak as me. But my racism isn't hatred - it's ignorance and fear but not judgement.
This kid clearly understands racism is bad. Racism is merely bigotry against a particular race. People often lump homophobia or anti-semitism under the racism banner - but it's really bigotry. It's all bigotry. Kid is a bigot, just as bad as being a racist... the cognitive dissonance is delicious.
I tend to make sarcastic comments playing the role of a racist. I find the irony hilarious as do most of my friends. It's okay to me since I know I'm really making fun of racists... I know most of my friends understand, but for the ones that wont/didn't/can't... I think I'll stop now.
