If you start out a sentence with those words, 99.9% of the time, I think you’ll find that you are.
Today I have woken to see that someone who I have recently became friends with is racist. Someone that I have enjoyed getting to know and I’m really sad to see one of the comments that she has made as well as something that she has posted on a social media site which fuels the haters even more.
Today I need to make the decision on how to approach her and as I don’t like confrontation (much), I am probably going to avoid her until I can figure it out. She doesn’t know that I blog (to my knowledge), so I don’t think she will see this but if she does.. Well.. Yeah.
A lot of folk would probably say that not every friend agrees on issues and you should be able to still be friends and agree to disagree but for something like this .. I just can’t get by it. To post something so strongly in social media in order to get people to agree and for the fire to keep burning is just a step too far. what do people hope to achieve through that?
What happened yesterday was just horrific for the victim, his family, the bystandards etc because they were innocent people going about their daily business but what I’d like to point out is that what the man was reported to have said is correct in that men, women and children in war torn countries do see this every day. I’m not condoning what he did , please don’t think that. I’m trying to say to those who are being so narrow minded and racist , that acts of terrorism are an every day normality for some countries and that any act regardless of country, is wrong.
There is not justification, no one deserves to die like that or die at all. My heart goes out to that man and his family and I hope that the two responsible for yesterday , get taken down and brought to justice. It was horrific and uncalled for.
As for those who continue their narrow minded racist campaign …do you have any understanding of their faith? Probably not and I’d say your understanding comes from the daily mail, and YouTube …. That you pick out the hatred and lies because you have some inbuilt anger within yourself and have jumped on to the newest cause and directed it towards a group of people who don’t deserve to be lumped in the same category as terrorists.
Anyway, I’m saying no more on the issue.. Apart from this… Starting off a sentence with those words DOES make you a racist. Just because you eat food from a take away or support a football player from a different country, it doesn’t excuse you when you use those words. Think about it.
