It is basically a long rant about racism as i see it.
I watched an episode of quantum leap (i know sad, but i ain't got a full time job YET, so nothing better to do), sam beckett the main star of the show leaps about into peoples live, what ever colour or sex they are. He leap into a black mans body in 1955, 4 months before Rosa Parks refused to move on the bus.
Sam's character is a white man, leaps into a black mans body so obviously people see a black man while he still thinks he is white and what follows is basically a first hand lesson in being a black man in the deep south in the 55's.
The way the white looked at him when He sat down in an all white restaurant and drank form a w"white only water fountain, they even ran over his grand kid cause of it. Ignorant mofo's
I would love for every white person to be changed into a black person just for a day, so that they can see that the colour of your skin has everything to do with how people treat you and their perception of of as a black man.
If you ask a white person in their 50's if they are racist, the first thing they will say is "i went to school with a black person, or my best friend WAS black", why get so defensive if you are not racist?
It is such a touchy subject and i have read many blogs on her with peoples opinion on race, what really gets to me is white people trying to be the voice for black people like they know shit about being black. I have been racially assaulted in london many times, and some of the clients i drive do not like the idea of a black guy driving their car but obviously cannot say shit about it, but they certainly show it in the way that they act towards you. In this day and age, i have had people that will not shake my hands but will go right ahead and shake my white friends hand right next to me.
Then you get white people saying shit about how black people are paranoid and are always giving excuses and shit like that. Don't get me wrong, i have never let my colour get in the way of my success but as it was once said, for a white person, "sky is the limit", for a black person, "the limit is the sky".
I do believe that black people are more racist than whites but we cannot show it as we lack a lot more than whites so have to put that shit behind us and do what we can to survive.
Me personally, my experience with south african whites has been very bad, so really kinda don't like them, if i meet a white south african (SA), until i actually get to know them (if i ever get a chance to) i will assume that they think i am beneath them, they say experience is a teacher so my perception of white south africans is that the majority of them are racist, what really gets to me about them is the way they talk about how it's not easy for them in SA, even though they are still favoured ( they can leave the country for a while because of their white fucking heritage even if it is for a period of time), can you imagine what it is like being black in SA.
An please don't get me started on the racist australians too.
Read a blog on here from a white SA woman and i felt like making some comments which would certainly include telling her where to go as i felt she was being self righteous with the bullshit she wrote about black women like she is one.
I had to educate myself in black history to understand the shit that white did to black during slavery and my God they can never be forgotten, though the black did sell each other and shit like that so we cannot blame white for it all, but what happened once we got to the west was a whole other shit.
I could not give a shit what colour you are (pussy is pink on the inside lol), i really don't have many white friends, as many whites that i meet are very strange with their ways but the white people that i do know(i can count on one hand) are very special and highly respected by me, purely because we have passed the race issue and see each other as equals.
If any white or asian(they think they are Superior too) steps to me, it better not be because of my race because i will be the victor!

Quantum Leap.. damn I used to love that show. I bought the first season on DVD and remember that episode you're talking about ldftb1 and I remember the feelings that got inside of me when he tries to get the little girl to the hospital and they refused to take her. Had my blood boiling!!!|
There is a movie I saw recently that stired up some feelings like that, Time to kill with Samuel L. Jackson, Keifer & Donald Sutherland and Sandra Bullock.
