If you open your eyes, then you will realize that Black ain't the only color that God made
Well he has been on my nerves for a minute now, but I think he has finally stepped on the last one.
Let me explain....
This dude see's everything in straight "BLACK." Everything about this dude is "black" this, the White man ain't shit that, I can't stand White women this and blah blah blah. He refuses to see anything other than race.
Now I cannot sit up here and say that I do not see race; because hell, this is AmeriKKKa. Damn near everything in this bitch is about race. But I can say I try to give EVERYONE the benefit of the doubt. I treat everyone I meet with respect because I expect the same in return. White, Black, Hispanic, Asian or American Indian does not play a role in how I view or treat a person. Now if that White, Black Hispanic, Asian or American Indian gets stupid with me; then all bets are off. You will be a motherfucker to the highest degree of motherfuckers, and you will get dealt with in a way I deem is best suited with being a motherfucker.
But this dude is not like that. Every White person is evil, every Hispanic person is here illegally taking food out of our (black)mouths, every Asian person wants to be White and every American Indian; well we don't see too many of them, so I don't know how he feels in that regard. But if we were lucky enough to see one, then this dude would probably have a problem with them too.
I think this is illiterate- ass thinking. I think this type of thinking is very unbecoming of anyone; especially someone who is in Church every Sunday as soon as the doors open. I have told this dude this on numerous occasions. I cannot explain why I keep fucking with him, but this dudes days of being in my phone contact list are numbered.
Let me delve into the background of the man that goes by the moniker Dirty Red for a minute so you can get a feel of how I feel and why I talk the way I do.
I was raised in a Christian home. Well in a Jehovah Witness home, but Christian none the less.
As I got older and started thinking for myself, I began to see the bullshit in that organization, so I started asking questions that would not get answered. I was very confused so I started hanging with the Muslim cats in the hood and I started picking their brains a little. I joined the Army and I still was leaning towards Islam. I have read the Koran as well as the Bible front to back many times. I even gave up pork for about a year and some change.
Again I started to see the bullshit in that organization (Islam), so I started asking questions that would not get answered. I was very confused, so I wrote off both Islam and Christianity for a long minute. I still read and researched on my own and did my best to answer the questions that I had on my own. The more I read and researched, the more I became disheartened against all things religion. I bounced back to Christianity for a minute, but I am back to the religion is bullshit stage, where I think I will remain.
I cannot call myself "Christian" because I am not "Christ"-like. I still do things that probably make Jesus and his father (I believe that they are 2 SEPARATE entities, not that father, son, holy-ghost bullshit that we are all taught as children), blush and ask each other, "Why do we keep fucking with this dude?"
For me to say I am Christ-like would be a lie against my creator and I refuse to do that because I feel that there ain't no coming back from that.
I cannot consider myself a Muslim for pretty much the same reasons.
So here I am.
Which brings me back to the subject of this little rant.
Everyone and everything has good and bad associated with it. One thing is not any better than another thing. In order to see that, I believe that a person has to be able to jump outside of their comfort zone and try to see shit the way others see shit. You have to be compassionate towards other people's views and opinions. You don't have to agree with them, but I think that you have to respect them and try to understand why this individual thinks and acts the way they do and adjust your attitude accordingly.
Some people cannot be reasoned with, which means that you have to cut that person from your life in order to keep that individual from bringing unnecessary stress to your shit.
And this is why I refuse to treat people fucked up just because I have a problem with their ancestors.
If my life is fucked up, then it is because I fucked it up, not that Sally or Tom's Great-Great-Great grand father fucked it up.
Let me say again that I still see and always will see race and I believe that AmeriKKKa will also. But I cannot and I will not let Sally or Tom's views stop me from being the man that God made me to be.
Because I believe that there ain't no coming back from that.
