Is It Wrong Of Me To Think This?

Is it wrong of me to think that 90% of old white people were (and probably really still are) racist. Because that was the order of things back when they was coming up. It was ok to be openly racist. Damn near every white person in america said Nigger when ever they wanted to and wasnt nearly trying to be scared of getting they ass whooped.
So i was thinking, if it was like this back in the day… racist people dont all of a sudden become tolerant every day. But im a reasonable guy… Ill say over the years…. 8 to 10 percent of white people that was the 90% before, had a change of heart and up’d there tolerance and understanding of other races and cultures and what have you. But at best that still leaves ( as far as im concerned ) 80% of the older white population of america to be some racist bastards.

So, because this was the way of things back in the day. And logically speaking, if most white people were racist back in the day, then they are still just as racist today. So is it wrong of me to live under the assumption that most older white people are racist, and treat them as such. Im not saying i go around being a dick to old white people. I hold doors open for old women, even white old women just the same as i would any where else. Its just that when I hold that door open for those old white ladies, I see what she does as she walks past, and depending on her behavior. You can tell how racist she is or isnt. For instance. If a white lady isnt racist, she will say Thank You a certain way. She will look you in your face for one. And she will be as delightful as she can possibly be at that moment. She aint gotta be super cheesy. But just barely a smile and a look in the eye counts. I dont know if im describing it right, but trust me, you can just tell. But other than that… if they dont do something along them lines, then there is a good chance that she’s racist. And let me tell you this… I rarely get a smile and a look in the eye, and thats real.

But like I said, i dont go around picking on old white people. I just believe that at least 90% of them are racist. Nothing wrong with that. Is it?

Actually you know what? So what if it is… i dont fucking care. Ill just be wrong then. fuck it.

    hell to the naw it aint bad to think that. I NEVER gave up seats for old white people when I took the bus in Boston, off the simple fact that A) we were in Boston, racist as fuck city since forever and B) back in the day (regardless of location) there were a whole heap of white people not givin good seats up for black folks. And thus it’s my silent revenge.

    Clearly, I have issues but oh well. LOL.

    It’s not wrong to think that. Most I’m sure still are. They lived in a different time than us and still have a lot of anger in them with everything that has happened to them and their families. And I’d say it’s more than 80. They are DEFINITELY not racist bastards. You can’t hate on people who went through things we will never experience. You can’t hate on people who have every right to think the way they do.

  3. Ok I know this is nuts, but I swear I just blogged about this exacty same topic. I HATE it when you hold the door for white people ( though others do it toom just not quite like white people do it) and they don’t acknowledge your politness with a thanks.

    Great blog, btw.

  4. When I hold the door for old white ladies, I sometimes get that feeling that she’s thinking to herself, “Yeah nigger girl, hold the door! muah ha haaa! Imma walk slow too, you black beeyotch!” And of course, the old white lady is most likey not thinking this but I still have to catch myself from whapping the shit out of her ass before she can get all the way through the doorway. I haven’t caught a case yet…

  5. here’s the thing: if you were born in the south during segregation, you’ve at least got racist tendencies, if you’re not a closet racist, or just a blatant racist.

    that goes for whites AND blacks. you know i don’t have to remind you that old black people are some of THE most racist people on earth. and i say that as a black child and grandchild. difference is, black people who grew up in that place and time are a little more entitled, in my opinion.

    i ain’t sayin it’s right; that’s just the way it is.

    an interesting post, especially from a west coaster, where they really didn’t have slavery. (not that racism didn’t make its way out there!)

    Co-sign on Liz’s comment. (and on this post in general) NO old white ppl gettin my seat on the bus homie! I don’t care how tired they may look – I just blatantly look them in the face like “now you know u didn’t give your seat up to no old nigger ladies back in the day, so stand ya ass up and hold on tight to that pole!”

    Def. my silent revenge.
