I'm mexican and my fiance is black, we live in the border with Mexico and 95% of people here is mexican. I just got a "fwd text" that said: "Tar balls found on beach near South Padre Island" it came with a picture of a black family swimming!!! I know there is no way that this classmate would know my fiance is black, but one should be really careful who to send those texts to. If I wasn't engaged or even knew my fiance my reaction would have been: "thats mean". But since I am engaged to him it ticked me off. And who would want to have a picture taken of their family and to be sent around with a racist message anyways!?!?!?

  • I can see why that's upsetting...I've had "friends" send offensive matter that is thinly veiled as humor too..some people are just ignorant, try to just let it roll off your back and be grateful you were born with a high enough IQ to not be the same way.

  • Some people just suck.. But honestly.. sometimes I won't even read the forward and just click on ten ppl outta my phone book and send it.. without seeing who it is. I wouldn't let it bother ya.

  • That "friend" who sent it is not your friend. That's a racist forward and wrong no matter what.

  • My goodness, some people certainly have the sense of humour of a wire coathanger, don't they?

    This is funny? In any context? To anyone? Wow.

    It's not even smart enough to be angry about... it's the humour equivalent of a 4mo baby pooping in a diaper.

  • I hate racist joke text fwd's I just delete them and do not respond at all. Even when my husband sends them I get really mad at him and I just delete it. tell him later that it was not funny. ( we are both white, and I don't think it matters what color you are they are not funny)

  • Wow, that is pretty bad taste. I can't stand racism in any form, whether it's people trying to be funny or just straight up ignorant bastards.
