Real slice of Americana wouldn't you say? Perhaps people who live in lily white glass houses shouldn't throw racist stones?

That is for sure. What does a person from that type of environment and that young really know about racism in America? Oh I agree that racism is there but you don't go calling people you never met racist. You might just be wrong.

My thoughts exactly. Plus, don't post a blog calling out the entire nation, and then not allow people to post on it. Rather rude if you ask me.

Guess she just likes to talk to herself. They do have meds for that you know.

I guess a rant will make ya feel better for a minute, but when no one can comment it is saying that ya don't think you can argue your point if there is one and the rant becomes radical. If you want it bad enough, live it yourself and watch others follow suit. If ya don't live it, then ya can't preach it. ...when's the last time a mexican sat at your dinner table instead of mowing your lawn?

Awwww !!! Poor little Asian girl feeling so put upon in her adopted little town?
I guess she'd like it if she could go back to whatever third world country she's from so she could enjoy life without prejudice

Yes it is. And pretty darn rude to call out everyone as "racist" without knowing them either.

when's the last time a mexican sat at your dinner table instead of mowing your lawn?

For the record, my best friend, who is like a sister to me, and her family is family to me, is Mexican. Her dad moved to the U.S. when he was 18 yrs old, and became a legal U.S. citizen after joining the military. Her mother was born and raised in San Antonio Texas. Both parents spoke very fluent Spanish. Her dad passed away August 2008. So, I've sat at their dinner table plenty of times through the years, have even gone camping with them. As for mowing my lawn, I've always mowed my own lawn. (I might bitch about it, but....... )

Also, I've got family members who are mixed race, so, for anyone to ASSume I'm racist....just made an ass of them self. And to not let people comment on the blog after saying all of that nonsense...yeah Bunny, I agree....can't back up their claims.

I agree, there is racism out there...it's not a perfect world. If it was, there would be no wars, poverty, racism, or natural disasters.

Exactly Bunny! She knew she couldn't back up shit or she would have let people post! When you live in a tiny town that is 98,95% white, don't even come and preach to me about racial tolerance. I don't give a shit what your nationality is. Me racist? Hell no. Damn good thing my family wasn't or I wouldn't be her as I'm biracial. I've dated men from many different races and my new daughter in law is Japanese. So bite my fat brown ass bitch! As for people living in different "communities" determined by race in the cities. It's not like the old days when folks are forced to live where they are told. You can live any damn place you want, provided you can afford it. There are rich and poor in all races. Poverty doesn't discriminate against race. But until you get some years on you, and leave that lily white little bubble you're living in, don't preach on something you know nothing of. That's just my .02

Some of you are going to hate me for this.
Her blog title seems to be fitting like a glove & perhaps she is now smelling what she is shoveling.
So bite my fat brown ass bitch!
Could be tasty. Well shit I'm kidding .

You are right as rain on that which is probably why I'm still living in a one bedroom cube called an apartment but I have no shame about it & guess what I'm a Heinz 57 cracker.

...oh yeah...about the title..."some of you are going to hate me for this"...I don't hate. It is a negative drain on the boy and ones personna as well as spirit. I don't have time for hate.

If you assumed she's an immigrant because her profile lists her ethnicity as Asian, you made a racist assumption. The majority of Asians who live in America were born here and are American citizens.

I don't agree with her when she says that America is a racist country. However, I do think you could disagree without referring to her ethnicity and suggesting she go back where she came from. If for no other reason, it undermines your own argument.

JMHO.

I had ignored most of this as I am not only tired of reading the provocative crap a select few put out to incite people to react, but bored with discussing it.
