So another black kid dead at the hands of a white police officer. This time there’s no doubt the kid deserved it, because he held a gun to the cop, and yet black people are still complaining. Are you guys that fucking terrible and twisted that it’s gonna take a cop to give up their defense and let a suspect kill them, will that finally make you happy? It just pisses me off how so many people act like those black teens in the national headlines that were killed are fucking saints, who actually helped out the very communities defending them, when in reality they were just there to take from them and give nothing back. This whole thing has gotten out of control and it isn’t getting better, America isn’t getting any better.
Alright so I planned on meeting my friend in Braintree the other day, and I realized that I still hadn’t used my college tour day yet. I woke up at the normal time that I do for school and left like 15 minutes later than I normally would. So I get down to the train station and the train was scheduled to get there at 8:07, well I checked the time and it was 8:10. I then went on my phone and looked up the mbta website and find out some idiot got her car stuck on the tracks. So the train got delayed by about 25 minutes and got there at 8:32. I arrived at the Braintree station and then took the red line to JFK/UMASS and just barely made it in time.
So I get into this little room where other people are scheduled to take a tour also, and we go over this 45 minute power point, and then met with the tour guide. The facility was impressive and there were alot of constructions being done, but what really caught my eye was the catwalk system, it went on for a long time. There was nothing truly memorable other than that, but I really am considering trying to get my grade up and getting into that college, or at least any.
So I take back the shuttle bus to the train station and go up to Braintree. I had about 2 hours to wander around and do nothing, so I went to get a coffee from Dunkins and walk up to the mall. After those two hours my friend hit me up and we met at his house and then just started walking back up there. We didn’t even go in the mall we just went up to the very top of it. Now I was also at the very top during my first trip there (It’s about a 25 foot drop to the parking lot below that and an even further drop to to parking lot) and a white security guard came on walking by and didn’t say a word to me. On the second trip there me and my friend were in the exact spot and I was sitting on the ledge while he was standing. All of a sudden a black security guard came walking over here and said “Now tell me what’s wrong with this picture” and I replied “Nothing officer, I don’t see anything illegal going on over here.” Long story short he kicked us off the property for fucking sitting on a pretty secure and pretty not dangerous are were the ledge was really wide and there was no way I was falling from there. Basically what I’m trying to say is I wonder what would’ve happened if some black kids were in our situation, with a black mall cop walking by and saying nothing and then a white mall cop later on kicking them off the property, I wonder if the word ‘racist’ or ‘hate crime’ would be used.
One more thing, the reason why I was sitting on the ledge is because I like the spot and it was a good spot to take some photos of the clouds and the surrounding from, I was never going to fall off the ledge.
I really wish I published this yesterday but I didn’t get home til wicked late and had other shit to do. That’s not really important though, I still remember a good amount of the discussion. So I was in 4th block and my teacher started talking about McCarthyism. Now at that moment I wasn’t very interested due to the fact he talked about that and Joseph McCarthy for the past 2 days, but here’s where it got good.
He brought up the fact that ridicule is a great weapon, because when you accuse someone of being a rapist or a racist, then they are immediately antagonized and often times it can shut them up. He also talked about how women can claim that they were raped or beaten and they are automatically victimized, even if there isn’t any evidence. He also talked about how black people can do a similar kind of thing. Lets says a black and white person get into a fight, if the black guy calls the white man a cracker, then it isn’t a legitimate hate crime, but if the white person calls the black person a nigger, then its no doubt a hate crime. Even if there is no evidence to support the black persons claim, people automatically assume the white person to be a racist. It’s all because blacks are part of a protected class, and women are as well. Some black people also say that modern day whites should be punished for what our ancestors did, and I just think to myself “Fuck you, you didn’t live there life you piece of shit.” I just hate how people try to use that same stupid ass revenge for our ancestors shit to justify every outrageous fucking claim they make, or even in some cases to justify their crimes on white people.
He soon asked the class if any of them have been following the whole issue on the ‘Washington Redskins’ and how people in congress want that name to change, due to it being offensive. Now my teacher has a lot of the same views as I do, and a good amount of the class seems to for that matter. Anyways, one of the kids in my class brought up how he would be proud if there was a team that was named after his people (All the students in my class but one are white, and the one kid isn’t even fully black) and how he wouldn’t be offended, as having a team named after your people is actually holding them in high regard, kind of like celebrating them. Another kid who I’m good friends responded saying “So what, if I had a sports teams it would be acceptable to called them The Niggers.” (By the way my teacher is pretty deaf, and he’s only like 50). Now this was a tricky topic for me to get an opinion on, as Matt has a great point, but I don’t see any actual Redskins getting offended, and the word Redskin is nowhere as bad as Nigger.
Soon enough, just like I thought it would, the teacher started talking about feminism. He said that there are feminists and then there are extreme feminists, aka feminazis. A good amount of the class displayed their dislike of them, and rightfully so. There wasn’t very much discussion about this topic and quite frankly that was the end of the nice little half hour discussion.
