Ok this was the funniest thing I've ever had anyone call me. Ok we went out shopping today and while we were out my guy was reading something about a man that was mauled by a bear. I looked at him and asked was the guy white and he was like yea and started laughing. I just shook my head and started laughing, well someone walking by said that I sounded racist because I asked if the guy was white. I was like well lets see, how many black guys do you know that go out in the middle of the woods and get mauled by a bear? So it was a legit question. He was like well I think you're racist. I was like well I think you're an idiot. For those who don't understand why his comment was completely retarded I'll explain. My spouse is white, my kids are mixed and my adopted parents are Italian, and over half my friends are either White or mixed. I mean hell if I started calling everyone racist that made a MOTO (Master of the obvious) statment then the whole world would be racist. The other night I was watching Ghost Rider and it got to the part where he was in jail and killed all the bad guys excpet for the one Black kid. I made the comment well if he's innocent why the hell is he in jail, and without missing a beat my spouse was like duh hunny he's black. All I could do was laugh cause frankly it was funny as hell. The point of my rant is this, the world needs to lighten the hell up. If folks would stop trying to be so damn PC about everything and worry about who's gonna offend who then mabye we wouldn't be having as many problems as we are having. Yes there are real racist in the world, why, because people are still to damn ignorant to learn about and get to know other people.

Haven't been called a racist yet, but I've been accused of "acting like whitey" especially as a teen because I focused a lot on my studies. Sigh...

LOL, funny how people want to insult you for wanting to further your education. Its a sad world when wanting to be educated is looked down upon.

I have been called a racist so many times I now ignore it. Usually, it is a fall back position for someone too unintelligent to understand a given situation so they cope by calling a name, "racist". Good for you and your attitude.

People really need to lighten up. You can't say anything anymore without offending someone.
