    Due to my job being in the sun all day, I've got a pretty dark tan. Apparently some guys thought I was "too" dark. As I was driving home a few minutes ago, some fuckwads yelled "nigger!" out their window at me. My first thought was "I hope they crash and die!"

    Yeah, I know how you guys feel now. Racism fucking sucks.

    That's what I was thinking...jealous of my tan.
    That's the first "serious" racism I've ever encountered down here.

    What's funny is there aren't many rednecks in South FL. In fact, there aren't many Americans at all. That's what I like about the place...very seldom do I encounter racist rednecks. Living down here has made me grow fond of people of almost all cultures, and an ever-increasing disdain for rednecks. This little incident may have done it completely for me. Now I totally loathe rednecks. Fuck'em with an F-150. icon_lol.gif

    Actually, you couldn't know how it feels for a black person to be called a nigger, just as a straight person couldn't know how it feels for a gay person to be called a faggot.

    It just doesn't carry the same sting.

    I may not know "exactly" how it feels, but I do know I felt like turning the car around and ramming the fuck out of them.

    Its slightly different. I cant describe what it felt like the first time I was called that name. I had the worst feeling in my stomach and became so angry. I wanted to physically hurt the person that said it. I hate ignorant people.

    Mean people have learned exactly what words hurt the most.
    So, those are the words they use.

    The OP may have felt angry at the idiots.
    But, there's no way he could have felt the hurt...

    Yes, I did feel the hurt.
    Being raised in the deep south, I'm already way too familiar with mean people (aka 'southern hospitality', aka back-stabbing-but-nice-to-your-face). While in the deep south, I dated a few black guys. Boy did that ever create some commotion! And currently I have a black FWB whom I love dearly. It hurt me to no end being in another person's shoes, even if only for a moment, otherwise I wouldn't have bothered to post a thread about it.

    ive failed to see how you could have such a tan that you could be mistaken for an African American.

    I'm light skinned and I doubt you could tan to my complexion.

    I doubt I'll be around that long unless modern medicine gets a little bit more advanced.

    Wow I guess black really doesn't crack if you endured 300 years of racism.
