Just when you thought your ass was beat!!!

In the wakes of all this nasty racism things going on in blogland, I wish to share something with you all....

The year was 1982, I was a
junior in high school. I did not have many friends let alone a "boy"friend. But, ever since Junior high school I had always sat in front of one person. His last name started with a "D" and mine started with a "B" so...you do the alphabet! Anyhow, throughout the years this boy became a friend of sorts. We never hung out together because had we done so I am sure my father would have had my hide for breakfast!

One night, after a football game we had a dance. And there was a guy I had just been dumped by. He came over and asked me to dance and while we were dancing he kept looking at his friends giggling. Come to find out he was dared to dance with me...I was hurt and confused....I ran to the coat check room where my "Alphabet friend" was getting his coat. He asked what had happened and when I told him, he gently set his coat down and walked from the room. I walked out to find him with the ex-boyfriend glued to the wall with one hand explaining calmly to him how big of an ass he was because in his opinion I was the best person in the world and HIS friend and no one treats his friend that way. Stunned and shocked I grabbed my coat and took off. While I was outside waiting for my ride to show, my alphabet friend came out and apologized to me for what the other guy did.

Now, I waited forever for my girl friend to come back from her date but she never did. So my Alphabet friend offered me a ride. I lived out in Bum-fuck Egypt and he had very little gas. But, he insisted. I was scared to death. Why????? HE was black and if my father caught me in a car with him I would have had my ass beaten raw. But, it was then and there I decided that I am not going to bow to my fathers racist views. I decided to allow my friend to take me home. He was the perfect gentleman on the way home...we laughed alot and I cried because I did not want him to get any flack from my dad. But, he still insisted he could handle anything....even my father. Luckily, my father had gotten called to work and was not home. I told my mother what happened and all she said was..."Just do not let your father find out!"

Many, many years later, I saw my alphabet friend again. We sat and had a couple drinks at a local club and he admitted to me his love for me from the first day we spoke. He said he knew of my fathers views and for my sake he never wanted to put me through that, so he never acted on his feelings.. He said he could handle his own but he did not want ME to get my ass kicked for knowing him.

The point behind this is to show that usage of degrading words that start with "N" is not acceptable in my world. I overcame the teachings of a very racist father and I learned from one person that people are people. No matter their skin color, religious beliefs or....whatever.

The HUMAN race is what I believe in.......

Good that you did not take the easy way out and follow your father.
Some never see the truth, some see it but are afraid to change.
Some, like you, have the courage........ to change.

I suspect your friend helped many others with his positive attitude.
The world needs more like him.

I have a theory that each new generation that comes along is a bit more tolerant, or enlightned. At least here in the United States. I don`t know about the rest of the world. I`ve seen a tremendous difference in racial attidtudes from my grandfathers generation down to my kids generation. I think there is hope.

Good free, we all started from one cell which changed as time and temperature differed. Glade the only thing that stops ignorance is intelligent thought. With understanding creates completion.

Wouldn't the world be very boring if we were all the same color?

My father is still the same way. Fortunately, he's accepted my daughter's Mulato baby. Amazing what fathers pass on to their children?
