proud to be white

friday, october 1st, 2021

How many are actually paying attention to this?

There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, Arab Americans, etc etc etc etc. And then, there are just Americans.

You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction. Fuck You.

You call me 'White boy,' 'Cracker,' 'Honkey,' 'Whitey,' 'Caveman'. Fuck You.

And that's OK. But when I call you Nigger, Towel head, Sand-nigger, Camel Jockey, Beaner, Gook, or Chink, you call me a racist. Fuck You.

You say that Whites commit a lot of violence against you. So why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?

You have the United Negro College Fund.

You have Martin Luther King Day.

You have Black History Month.

You have Cesar Chavez Day. You have (the phony) Kwanzaa.

You have Yom Hashoah.

You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi.

You have the NAACP.

You have BET.

If we had WET, (White Entertainment Television), we'd be racists. Fuck You.

If we had a White Pride Day, you would call us racists. Fuck You.

If we had White History Month, we'd be racists. Fuck You.

If we had any organization for only Whites to 'advance' OUR lives, we'd be racists. Fuck You.

You have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce, and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce. Wonder who pays for that?

A White woman could not be in the Miss Black American pageant, but any color can be in the Miss America pageant.

If we had a college fund that only gave White students scholarships. You know we'd be racists. Fuck You.

There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges in the US. Yet if there were 'White colleges', that would be a racist college. Fuck You.

In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and rights. If we marched for our race and rights, you would call us racists. Fuck You.

You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you're not afraid to announce it. But when we announce our White pride, you call us racists. Fuck You.

You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us. But, when a White police officer shoots a black gang member, or beats up a black drug dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society, you call him a racist. (Many more people are killed by lightening strikes, than blacks are killed by White police, each year.) Fuck You.

I am proud to be White. But you call me a racist. Fuck You.

Why is it that only Whites can be racists?

There is nothing improper about this line of thought. If you think there is, Fuck You.

That's why we have LOST most of OUR RIGHTS in this country. We won't stand up for ourselves!


It's not a crime... YET.

But it's getting very close.

A Day In The Life.

Up at 8a on Friday, I went thru my finger stick to check my BSL (Blood Sugar Level) and recorded it on my Diabetes 2 chart, made coffee and breakfast, had a couple smokes in the cold garage and checked the leftover errands list. It was only 57°, and felt darned cold. After the hot and humid Summer we've been thru, I'm not complaining about this Fall weather. I vacuumed-out the Jeep and took it to the nearby DIY Car Wash to get the dust off it.

After lunch, I worked in the basement on the old tax files, removing clasps, paper clip and staples, on both my old records and the Ol' GC&N's, which seemed endless. I'll be on it for at least 4-5 more days. After dinner, I watch Fox News' Tucker, skipped the Hanity bullshit, caught Laura and Gutfeld and crashd at 12:30a.

I slept-in until 10a on Saturday, a beautiful 65° and 55% humidity morning. After coffee and a light breakfast, I worked much of the day on the old tax returns' boxes in the basement for hours, then went out for a short walk around the complex. After Chicken Parmesan for dinner, I watched TV until 10p, called it a early night, since I had to get up at 6a for the 8a F-1 Race.

My evil alarm went off at 6a, and I obliged. The F-1 Russian Grand Prix would be coming on at 8a, so I had things to do and get ready to watch. I did the finger stick, made coffee and a light breeakfast, and grabbed my usual morning shower. Lee was a no-show. It was a great race. After lunch, next on was the IMSA GT Rave from Laguna Seguna Raceway in Monterey (CA), and then the IndyCar Race from the streets of Long Beach (CA); all exciting races.

I had dinner and watched some TV news, but quit for the day around 10p.

Up at 9:30a on Monday, it was another brisk, cool 63° morning, so I opened-up the condo's front and back screen/storm doors. I had some errands to do, but would listen to the "Chris Plante Show" from 9 until 12, and then get after the trips. After lunch, I ;eft for Red Lion, south of York, to get a few errands done, and was back home by 3p.I just enjoyed the rest of the afternoon's weather, a short walk around the complex, Becky stopped by for a visit and by 7p, it was getting dark. I buttoned-up the condo, watched "American Pickers", "Iron Restoration" and "Fantom Works" until 10:30p, and called it a day.

Awake at 8:30a on Tuesday, another cool 62° but humid, Fall morning, I made coffee and breakfast, had a couple smokes in the garage and listened to the "CP Show", since I had zero on the schedule, nowhere to go and nothing to do. Soon enough, it was 12 and time for lunch, but I wasn't hungry, so opted to wait another couple hours. I just got some bad news: a friend of 12yrs in MD died this morning, but his wife didn't specify the cause of death. He was only 61. RIP.

After some Crab-Filled Ravioli for a late lunch, I got a 3hr snooze on the couch. Around 5:30p, I got up, checked the weather and news, had a banana for dinner and watched Fox News shows until 11p. Lights out.

Up at 8:15a on Wednesday, it was a cold 51°, bright, sunny day, but I turned-on the heat to take the chill off the condo. After breakfast and coffee, I moved the Jeep out on to the driveway, so I could sit more comfortably, while having coffee and having a couple of Marlboros. No errands today, so I listened to the "CP Show" until lunch, and Sherry arrived at 1p. After not seeing each other for almost 3 weeks, due to Covid in the family, we'd planned to do some walking at nearby Springettsbury Twp Park, and did for between 1-2hrs. Afterward, we came back to my place, and talked for another hour, and then she left to get some food shopping done and get home before the traffic became heavy.

I had a simple BLT-Egg Salad Sandwich for dinner, watched "Fantom Works", "Mecum Auto Auctions" until "Tucker" came on, and just stayed with Fox until 11p. My cleaning lady is due here at 8:30a, so I wanted to get some sleep.

Up at 6a on Thursday, I went thru the motions of getting coffee started, breakfast going etc, but I was still groggy. It was 49° and downright cold, comparatively speaking. I hate getting-up this early, at "0-Dark-Thirty". And today was supposed to be another "Y2K Day", but it wasn't for me. You have any problems? I guess all my "old stuff" is updated, somehow.

My cleaning lady, JoAnne, showed-up at 8:30a, and was finished by 11:30, and left. I used the Wellspan Medical System's website to change my Friday, Oct 22nd 6pm Pfizer "Booster Shot" to this Saturday, Oct 2nd, at 3pm. That website has become so complex to navigate, dammit, but I somehow always manage to figure it out.

High for the day was 66°, and it was most pleasant. I spent some time working in the dual-front and single back gardens, but will opt to wait for total Fall Maintenance until Alan & his River Rock Landscape Co Crew, come the week of Oct 25th. It's just too much for me, at this point.

I had lunch, took a short snooze on the LR couch, did paperwork and worked on the tax files in the basement. After dinner, I grabbed a long hot shower, watched some car shows' episodes I hadn't seen before until "Tucker" etc came on. By 11p, I'd had enough and headed upstairs to get some sleep.

Tomorrow starts a new week, here in the "Journal".
