Am I Suppose To Be Colorblind And Indifferent Or Not?
The Derrick Gordon gay basketball thing happened. The Michael Sam thing happened. Both times my response has been "meh." I don't really care. For both incidents I've read, heard, or been told the same thing, "If you aren't celebrating this situation you are apart of the problem."
I have to celebrate now?! I'm practically forbidden to acknowledge skin color for fear of being a racist. If I had anything negative to say about homosexuality I can't say it - then I'd be a homophobe. Apparently, according to some, if I don't go cheering for advancements in black culture and/or the homosexual agenda then I am apart of the problem.
This is my confession: I don't give a crap about the race card or gender preference of anyone. I can't sincerely stress this enough. I truly can not physically care less about those factors of your personhood.
Not that anyone will believe me, because the first time I have a confrontation with someone who isn't white (like me), I'll instantly become a racist. Even though I'm bickering with the person because of the shitty content of their character, not the color of their skin. Not that it's relevant, of course. If I didn't want my children staring at the PDA of a gay couple I'd be considered a homophobe. Not that I'd want them staring at a make-out session performed by anyone, but let's not get into the details and just assign me a homophobe.
Colorblind to race and Indifferent to sexuality? I can't tell what to do. I just know I can't be negative in anway to race or sexuality, but apparently I need to lead the parade if something good happens. I just want to sit in my corner of indifference and give the occassional golf clap without getting crap about it. Am I asking too much!?
