I tell you.. One of the hardest things about living in Mississippi.. Is the fact that Racism is far from dying.. The Ignorant Racist strikes again! As I was sitting there minding my own business.. This man would not stop staring at me. Finally I asked him "Can I help you??" He then proceeded to tell me that I didn't belong in this country. That it's because of people like me that our country is being ruined. At first I didn't realize what he was trying to say.. But then he said Mexicans are ruining our economy. I said "Dude, I'm not even Mexican or Hispanic at all.." Then he said "well then you Muslims are terrorists and we don't feel safe with you all around y'all need to go back to Afghanistan.." I just laughed in his face which seemed to make him more angry.. Then I said "you must be a Trump supporter.." And he said "Hell yes I am!" And then I politely said "sir, just because you are "Caucasian" does not make you any better than me or anyone else.." And then I told him not to judge anyone by the color of their skin or appearance.. Because I'm A Proud Native American Dammit. And you sir are the only type of immigrant that is ruining our country! #EffTrump #EndRacism #NativesRock #ProudChahtaOhoyo
My response: Damn straight, Ms. Martin. I trace my ancestry to this continent at a couple thousand years. So when they say that we have an "immigrant problem," I agree that it's been that way for several hundred years and begins with those making the most noise that "foreigners need to go home."
