"But to be fair, cuz I’m about being fair, on the SAME note I have visited establishments like Burger King-when I didn’t have time to cook [especially during the holiday season] cuz I was short from starving too death and encountered Diva Skank with a bad Macy Grace look singing on her microphone with those ugly long nasty fingernails.  When I interrupted her to place an order, heifer had an attitude.  Or when I come up to the window at McDonald's, young brothas are rapping and playing around....and are surprised to see me pull up cuz  they didn’t remember my order and TRIED to pretend that I didn’t make one.  In those instances, I think it’s MORE youth than race."

 

Yep!!  I agree with you, 100%, there my sistah!!    Because even though we don't have the same 'overwhelming majority' problem here (it IS still mostly young, black teens/young adults who have the majority of those types of jobs here) ... I DO ... waaaayyyy too often, encounter just rude, inconsiderate and disrespectful treatment as a "customer" from a LOT of - but certainly not ALL - young, Black employees/cashiers/store personnel in many of the stores and food shops I frequent.  And I find it's mostly females, too. 

 

But ... what I read most from the particular actions and attitudes I get is that .. they pretty much just don't KNOW any better!!  They act as if having manners and providing basic respect (home-training) just wasn't properly taught to them .. and they simply don't understand the basic concept behind those kinds of things!!  That you just don't be nice to people because you HAVE to ... or GET PAID to (or at least try!) ... but, because it's a basic human courtesy that you should try to extend to EVERYONE (or at least those that show they deserve it!) ... that could actually make life a little BETTER all the way around, if applied!!

 

I have no doubt there'd be a lot LESS anger, hatred, attitude, violence over stupid little shyt, disrespect and inconsideration ... if people - and ESPECIALLY BLACK PEOPLE - would simply act to be a little nicer to each other!!  "Please", "Thank you", "Excuse me" and "How are you doing today?" are more like a foreign language in our communities than the typical way we choose to address each other throughout the course of a day.

 

And that is terribly sad.  And even more sadly true. 

 

 

"I was talking to an associate of mine who is on this tangent where she accuses the govt for allowing this to happen way back in the day when they i.e. Latinos/Hispanics used to hide from sight-especially if one screamed “immigration.”  You'd see them scatter like roaches.  Now?  They have govt programs to help them financially when they are illegal.  How is that?  How can people obtrain MONEY from this country when they are NOT citizens?  And the citizens[those who ARE from this country] cannot get ANYTHING!!!!  Her claim is that the govt set this up to minimize or overshadow the conditions of blackfolks and their needs.  Saying that they rather HELP foreigners than black citizens.  I couldn’t argue her point cuz it appears she’s right.  But if this is so then the ONLY folks to BLAME for this unbalance is white folks.  They are the one who let them in, gave them money AND jobs.  Otherwise, they wouldn't be here.  Right? But!"

 

I'll tell you what, Ms. Koco ... I AGREE with probably MOST of what your associate is saying!! 

 

Yes, the government/White folks most definitely set this up!!  However, I don't think they KNEW what was gonna happen when they put it all in place .... 'cause, quite frankly, they're not - and never have been - all that BRIGHT to be able to see the (negative) consequences of their actions BEFORE they make them!! 

 

That's why they never see things like this coming.  And always want to close the barn door AFTER the horse is lloooooooonnnnnngggggg GONE!!

 

Yes, they let (even brought) tens of thousands of Mexicans (before the border floodgates opened to capacity, it was pretty much ONLY Mexicans that were allowed to be here "illegally"!!) to come in here and work and undercut Black labor because the Mexicans were 'fair game' for 'slave' wages and mistreatment that BLACK people weren't gonna go for anymore after we started getting - and demanding - our rights to be treated/employed fairly!!

 

In order not to have to deal with increasingly "uppity" Negroes, Hispanics were the answer to rich people's/corporations/Big Business's prayers!!! 

 

What they DIDN'T see coming or realize or consider or try to stop in time - and what IS and WILL BE their (White folks) undoing in the end is the staunch Hispanic-Catholic belief in procreation ... and the "anchor baby" syndrome!!  (And, yes, I know that's considered offensive - but it is what it is!!)  And what that has done is created an OVERPOPULATION of Latino CITIZENS ... that now have rights and votes and the protection of citizenship .... that the White man can not do NOT-A-DAMN-THING about!! 

 

It's over and done with!!  A signed, sealed and delivered proposition that Latinos (of ALL ethnicities and nationalities) will populate faster than any other racial group in America!!!  There will be MORE of them than anybody else in the not-too-distant future!!  Already IS in some places!!  And, IMO, White folks STILL don't know what that means yet!!  But ... they're gonna find out.  No doubt about that.  AFter the fact and way too late.  But ... it's comin' soon enough!  And they only have themselves to thank - or blame - as the case may be!!

 

And I'll tell ya what else ... The reason why that's a PROBLEM for BLACK PEOPLE is this:  Hispanics typically THINK Republican - and have Republican ideals.  But, the only reason they don't back them politically is because of the immigration thing .. and the fact that White folks NOW want to reverse what they started and try to get them outta here - which isn't going to - can't - happen at this point!!

 

However, once they start taking over governments (local, state and eventually federal) ... they are likely to CHANGE that aspect of the agenda of the Republican Party as we know it TODAY!! 

 

And if that happens ... whatever little political clout (that we don't even use) that we enjoy today ... is going to melt away like ice on a hot stove and evaporate right before out eyes.    Mark my words.  White folks might not see their demise coming ... but, Black people better get it together, wake up and smell the Folgers, while we've still got the chance.
