They say it’s dead and it doesn’t exist. Whatever. There is so much hatred down here that it’s ridiculous. I ran into it last night from people I’d really liked until they puked their ignorance in my presence. I know their is racism everywhere…I know this…but down here, it’s so common place that I’m called “ignorant” when I disagree with the bullshit they spew. These people are not just the dug up poor that don’t know any better for lack of education, they are every class from poor to wealthy. It’s appalling the things they say about African American people…not appalling….just plain disgusting.
As I said, I ran into last night. And what was said made me get my stuff and hurry home in tears. All I kept thinking is this is the world we live in. It just broke my heart. Not old straight white guys…no it’s not that old, can’t let go, racism. There was an older man, a young man, and a gay woman spewing the ugly. How the fuck can a gay woman in Mississippi be a racist?!
I know I know…I’m not supposed to take sides on the internet. I’m a publisher and should remain quiet. Whatever. Fuck that. I’m saying it and I’m standing by it. This world will never know peace as long as the people are so stupid as to fight with one another all because of the color of one another’s skin. I think what was most disturbing last night was not that they were racists but that when they started talking there was sort of a bond made there between them. Really? Y’all are best buds because you all agree that you don’t like black people?
And it’s becoming even more common now days for people to talk like that since all the ignorant assholes have decided to climb out of the woodwork and run for president. Everyone thinks its fine now to show the ugly since it’s in our faces every day on the news. It’s the very same reason that people in that RWA group think it’s okay to exclude gay romance from their contests. And then, these people who spew their hatred, call themselves Christians. That’s the most laughable part of it all.
It’s disgusting. And last night when I got home, in tears, I told my husband it makes me want to move to a different country – I don’t even won’t to be here with these kind of people. I’m tired of being quiet about it. Exhausted. So I’m not doing it anymore. If you decide to be a part of the world of Sable Grey and say something ignorant, I’m going to call you on it. I will tell you that you are an ignorant asshat and please don’t shit where I eat.
