I'm not a racist, they were just a-holes!!!

Ok, so I went to 7-11 this morning, it was crowded with people and delivery people bringing boxes to restock...
I see this old lady standing in the middle of a narrow isle and these 2 guys try to swerve around her. Instead of saying excuse me or anything they say something like: 'what the f**k is wrong with you, you old bi**h? Get outta the f**kin way!' and shove their way passed her. Then, they go to walk into her again, so I rush in front of them and kinda tell them off. So they tell me: 'oh you think you're a bad ass little white girl you wanna talk s**t cause we're black huh?' I say 'what the f**k? NO! It's because you're f**king a**holes!' and I ask the old lady what she was trying to get and grab it for her. All the while these guys are still being loud and talking about me and how I'm racist since I'm white and they're black!

  • they were just respectful and did not like it that you called them on it, there is nothing racist about that, i am sure if they were white or any color then you would've done the same. Some people just think they have to use the racist card.

  • What you experienced is most commonly referred to as reverse racism. You did nothing wrong, they're just jerks. I'd say ignorant and uneducated as well, but I really don't know them.

  • I see that all the time. It's unfortunate but common. Ignorance
    One time I was working at a grocery store and these black guys seriously asked me for a discount because it was black history month.

  • Not racist, they were being rude and you were trying to help. Some people think they can use the racist card to get away with crap.

  • What company do they work for? Call and report them, no one should talk to another person like that.
