The New Face of Hate

All this over two incidences of racial slurs!  Like most things that make the jewstream newsfeed these days, I suspect this whole thing is contrived and probably by a hook nose.

Years ago, a Colombian co-worker told me (off-handedly) I was “too White”.  Course, now I know there’s no such thing as “too White” and it’s a compliment to be considered very White, it upset me at the time.

At another job, I got to listen to two mexican managers say within my hearing that “you could never get a White person to do this job”.  That made me pretty mad because THEY were sitting around chit-chatting while *I* was actually working.

I didn’t go on a hunger strike though and nobody got fired because I’m a grownup, not a child.  I sucked it up and worked because my family needed the income.

But if you’re the new face of hate, you can carry on like a baby and heads will roll.
