The whole double standard of racism is really annoying, especially to those who are Caucasian. It is irritating that today the presumption that all those with fair complexions are racist if they mention color or basically do anything someone of color dislikes, while a person of color can get away with these behaviors without being accused of racism. Today I was hanging out at a house way after a party was thrown waiting for a bus. These Latina girls were waiting for a metro going to LA to arrive back in the valley so they can be back in their Hollywood home. They passed the time by drinking and smoking blunts non
stop. They asked for a light and I gave them my lighter for them to borrow. Not long after finishing a blunt, they left for LA. I realized they did not returned my lighter and said exasperated, "Those Mexicans never gave me back my lighter!" An African-American who was hanging out at the house as well exclaimed,"That's racist!" The girls identified themselves as Mexican earlier. How the hell is it racist to call Mexicans Mexicans? Apparently I didn't realize using the correct name for an ethnic group was so inconsiderate. This whole white people are racist attitude have gone to epic ridiculousness.
