I’m sick of all the f++king race shaming! I’m white, and am sick and tired of being made to feel ashamed of the color of my skin. I am sick and tired of how every Asian student accuses me of cheating off them whenever I get a good grade or come up with an intelligent answer! Just because I’m white doesn’t mean I’m lazy, it doesn’t mean I don’t have goals, nor does it mean I’m not willing to work damn hard for what I want!
I’m tired of every African-American customer and coworker looking at me funny as if to ask, “Why are you working here? You’re white and have daddy’s money.” Newsflash people: My good for nothing father never took care of me a day in my life, nor would he consider spending a single penny on myself or my mom. We struggled without him my entire life, and we still struggle today, and I am not above working a retail job if it pays the bills and puts food on the table! I’m tired of all the hassle I get when I’m in the store and have to swipe my food stamp card, and everybody raises a fuss because, “Rich white people don’t need them.” Well here’s a reality check: Hard times don’t discriminate, I’m far from proud for needing government assistance, but I take it.
And as for the Muslims who are furious and disgusted that I do not wear a Hijab, or the Indian people that are outraged that I am working, getting an education, and am not married with children: F++K YOU all! Your rules DON’T apply to me. And if you think that white people are so disgustingly immoral, go back to where you f++king came from! I’m sick of the stereotypes, and in all honesty I wish I could change the color of my skin, but sadly, we live in a society where no matter what race you are, there is no way of escaping the hatred!
