Okay, be honest, is this "raciest"?

"Your car is Japanese. Your vodka is Russian. Your pizza is Italian. Your kebab is Turkish. Your coffee is Brazilian. Your tea is Chinese. Your cheese is French. Your t-shirt is Indian. Your oil is Saudi Arabian. Your electronics are Korean. Your numbers - Arabic, your letters - Latin. And you complain that your neighbor is an immigrant? Pull yourselves together! Copy if you are against racism/ethnic discrimination."

A friend of mine posted this on FB. I never do the copy/paste things like this. But I really liked this one, so I did. A few mins. later my cousin told me I'm a white trash raciest for even posting this... I think he was just trying to cause trouble because before the convo. was over he accused me of "living off the government" because my kids qualify for CHIP and "popping out babies for tax money" because I didn't abort my daughter. So I'm not really concerned about his opinion. BUT, I'm wondering what he saw here that made him think it was raciest at all...

What do you think?

**Sorry, I'm not sure where to put this...

  • That is the the opposite of racism . . . are you sure he wasn't just trying to get your goat?

    I love that post, by the way.

  • Sounds like he has a serious comprehension issue along with a pickle up his butt about you.


     Delete him and be done with him IMO.
