I hope you can say that to the guys who walk around with a shirt saying "Kiss me i'm Irish" every St. Patrick's Day. That statement has no basis in reality.
Ask yourself... How would I feel to be constantly told you have been turned down for a promotion or just didn't get hired because of your race? Just take time and think why their are people who feel this is wrong. If you can't see this check your heart and soul.
Great stuff! I am 48 years old and live in a neighborhood that has several minorities as well. One of my neighbors is Hispanic and he is one of the best people I know. When he has a cookout he always comes over and asks me if I want any food or a beer, I do the same for him. I get along with everyone though or at least I try.
I live in a community that is quite diverse because of the Japanese ran companies and Cummins Inc that is quite large and global. About 5 years ago my neighbors moved and a black american family moved in. Slick talking car salesman. We are butting heads to this day. For instance, just 4 days ago on the lake he tried to tell me I needed to throw a deep crankbait instead of my dropshot. Challenge accepted! We caught our limit and had a fish fry. He gets so mad when i shoot free throws and call nothing but net playing HORSE on his goal lol. Our boys are no different. Tied at the hip. They will be in kindergarten together. Cant wait to stand at the bus stop with him first day of school. Instead of building a privacy fence, i built a bridge so its safer for our little ones to climb over. When im told that its not good enough to say im not racist, is nonsense. I dont just love my neighbor because im supposed to. I love him and his family because they are great people and 5 years later would do anything we can for each other. Our children will be the same.
