what in the name of all that is decent. Who even…like…what. Should have put that fucker under the hood dryer and left him there to die.
I know, right?! I would love to say that I’m surprised, but after several years of living in the Bible Belt, I’ve basically heard it all. Weird as is sounds, I’m luckier than some, as I am not as easily identified as biracial. It’s so much shittier for several of my friends (not to mention my dad, who’s just the fucking best and who- aside from my mom-  I love more than pretty much anyone) and so many others I don’t know, which just infuriates me.

Whaaaat a total asshole :( I’m so sorry you have to put up with such bullshit, that’s ridiculous.
Thanks, Madeline- that actually means a lot. It’s comforting to be able to let it out on here- I have a thick skin, but sometimes dumb shit like this can still blindside a girl when she’s not looking.

Ugh, god. I’m sorry you had to deal with that. Some people are just assholes.
I so hear you, Annie.

OH GOD. You handled that a lot better than I would’ve. Props to you. WAS THAT GUY FOR REAL? UGH.

HE WAS COMPLETELY SERIOUS AND COMPLETELY CONFUSED BY MY REACTION TO HIS “PITY”. Sadly enough, I’ve had to deal with similar reactions in the past, what with a black father and a white mother in northwest Florida (which is basically southern Alabama, which: no bueno), so I’ve been able to curb my rage somewhat. Somehow, though, I still get surprised that there are real people actually like that living today and it just sort of makes my heart hurt.

omg I’m sorry, that must’ve been awful to deal with.

Thanks, babe. Whenever it happens (which is not super regularly anymore, thankfully), it just makes me incredibly thankful that I’m able to respond with relative intelligence and pride in myself. My parents are the greatest damn people, so I couldn’t have a stronger back-up team.

I know, girl. I KNOW.
