Martin Luther King – was hedging!

I have some newfound respect for that Martin Luther King dude.

Some very basic research revealed that King never actually preached equality as far as racial origin was concerned.

King was merely hedging – his dream was that people would be judged by their character rather than their race. But, if you dissect this a little closer – King never said that blacks were of similar character when compared to other races.

King was well aware that discrimination did not happen because of skin color. Discrimination did not happen because somebody happened to be black – it happened because somebody behaved black.

There is a fine line between racism as a sterotype – and racism lading to the misbelief that one black dude would be entirely relieved of of accountability for his/her actions within a society. I’m looking at YOU, Chris Brown.

And King must’ve seen it. All he enforced was his belief that people should be judged by their character – and I have to agree.

And if that was his dream, then maybe all of us, not just colored folk, should look in the mirror and start at one’s own character before cryin’ out racism in utter misinterpretation of one fellow dude’s dream.

Diet Coke

No, this is regular!

 

No, I should not be forced to waste my time explaining to you that I would like regular coke instead of diet coke.

 

How come your lack of discipline, that led you to be obese in the first place, and then straight down the road of denial, to require you to sip a disgusting, chemically altered liquid that bears no resemblance to anything ever meant to be consumed – forces me to fend off attempts to fill my calice with diet soda?!

No only is simple lack of discipline to blame for the fact that you are too fat; you are also blaming it on innocent outside products – such as good, old regular coke.

Ever heard this order: Oh, I’ll have two quadruple-pounder supersize fatburger combos, double kingsize fries, two apple pies, and a large Diet Coke!

What the hell? Have some respect for those around you…

Racism

Is it just me or does every black dude just randomly seem to draw the racism card, at will, in next to any social context?

Well, have I got news for you: Simply being black DOES NOT relieve you of your duties to function within a society. RACISM is not a carte blanche to do whatever the hell you think you should be doing and expect not be held responsible for it.

I know, this may be a complicated concept to grasp, but let’s face it: When has a white guy ever cried racism? When a homeless black dude sneaks up on you in a dark alley asking for change? When the oddball mentally deranged feller starts yelling at you for no reason in the supermarket?
