I have never been so offended....Have any one else experienced something like this?

I am an African American female. I have for the first time today been called racists remarks by Caucasians and I am just so upset about it. I was called all kinds of names. When the cops were called they were taunted also. There only excuse was that they are gonna make African Americans pay now that our president is African American. I am still upset and cant stop shaking. Have anyone else experienced this type of negativity because of your race?

  • I am sorry you went through all this childish behaivor I wish I could change the world but that is what the world is all about there alot of racist people who don't think twice on how they make colored people feel, or any other race. I pray that our new President does what he says and I know he will but I wish I could tell you this racists thing will go away but you and I know it wouldn't only God knows how long this will go on. Just keep your head up and consider the source some people never grow up and only act the way they were raised. God Bless you and take care.good luck

  • Stand strong. Idiots come in all shapes sizes and colors. I am truly sorry that you had to experience such hatred and bigotry. Did you remind them that the president is only half african american?

  • FYI, Butterfly1108- it is politically incorrect to use the term "colored people".

  • Colors? Can we say races or nationalities? This is much more politically correct!
