Seems like instead of moving forward, Alabama is moving 50 years backwards.

You can always come to Canada. Chances are, you'll never get judged here. Thank goodness for multi-culturalism!

But in all seriousness... you don't even need to tell me your story. I'm on your side.

Sorry to hear that Bambam

I came here 8 years ago, and I didn't get much beef from people because I don't exactly look like the stereotypical hispanic.

However, I once had a problem at work with a customer. A couple of years ago I used to work at a supermarket and some schmuck douche bag came to my register, he noticed that I had a slight bit of an accent, so he asked me where I was from... so I said, Colombia... then the fuckin' asshole told me to go hide before the cops get me to take away my stash. So I just said... Sorry, I just can't take your order anymore until I get a little respect.
It was then when I just walked out of my register, and he had to wait for 5 minutes until someone else came to finish taking his order. I didn't care if I got fired, I was just not going to take shit from that bastard. My supervisors were very supportive, and I really thank them for that because they stood by me and said that I had the right to do what I did.

It's a big country. I can't possibly answer that in one sentence. Ask a more specific question.

(and btw, the news from Alabama completely disgusts me, although I'm not really surprised)

Seems like in Alabama it's OK to screw your sister, but having a black classmate is just plain wrong.

It's absolutely hilarious to hear bands like Lynard Skynard constantly exposing their southern pride.

Isn't that racism in itself? Hee hee, I was trying to do this and I'm not sure if thats right. If you say I hate racist dogs, are you being racist? Seriously.
I know what u mean though...:-P

Fuck you.

You've never had the chance to be judged by your color, have you?

For once in your life, try to be in one of these people's shoes. Or in my shoes.



I totally sympathize with you BAMBAM
as a person of color i get judged all the time and it sucks

This whole discussion reminds me of a quote from 'Family Guy'.

"Ours is a great country, except for the south of course".

LOL... to not stay awy from the topic itself, the episode where they go to the south is funny hilarious.
I particularly love these redneck quotes from that episode...

- Is it true that up there in the north they have perfume for your armpits.
- Dang, I hope her borther don't make a move on her.

I can't wait to see 'Family Guy' coming back on the air.

They said the new episodes will start airing on January 2005.
