I'm sick

to death of the bloody Race card being pulled.

I am not a racist. Let me repeat. I am NOT A RACIST!

I have incredible friends who are coloured, black etc and quite frankly I don't give a damn if you are purple with green polka dots.
I have had enough. I was 11 years old in 1994 and completely unaware of what was going on in South Africa.

I understand that Affirmative Action has to take place. Sure, realistically, it is frustrating at times, but it's understood. I'm so tired of asking someone in the office who just happens to be of colour to do something. When it's not done and I ask what's happened I get this: "You're only asking because I'm black."
WTF? I'm sick to death of hearing that. I would do the same to the blue, green, white and orange person. It has got bugger all to do with race. It is a simple thing to ask someone when something will be done and I am ALWAYS courteous, when asking.

I get really pissed off about it. I am tired of this.

On a lighter note, I hope you have a wicked weekend. Gosh didn't I juist wish you a happy weekend yesterday? Boy this week has flown by! Have fun!!

i'm with you on this one blondie! that's the one thing in this country i absolutely hate.....everything is always about race. If i hoot at you because you drive like an idiot i'm told it's because you're black and i'm a racist, if there is a fight at school and it happens to be between a black and white boy....people say it was a racial dispute....when it was actually about someones ego being trampled on. It swings both ways tho. people are so bloody sensitive.....get over yourself already!!!

and for those of you who do discriminate due to you really need to get over yourself! do us all a favour and go be a racist in some other country OK?

Purple with green polka dots? We gotta draw the line somewhere you know ;)

That person is most likely just lazy and looking for an excuse not to do the work. Or they're ignorant. Shame on them for making it racial. Move on and ignore them.
