Is it me or is there a double standard when it comes to race talk?? Do you white people notice it?

I had stopped to wait for my husband to get medicine. I was the driver, the keys were in the ignition and I was around the corner on a residential street infront of a house because the parking lot was full. The man who I could tell was latino although he looked white and dressed like a typical biker comes out and taps on my driver window and demands I move my car with vulgar language of course. I told him that he doesn't own the street, I didn't use vulgar language as to not exasperate it(not that it wasn't going to get there but I didn't feel like wasting gas going round and round the block til my husband got out). He starts yelling at me like a mad man, I secretly call my husband on the cell so he can hear this cr*p. Then I the man says something like this "You white bit**es think you own the world....#%^$&^% off my property."
So in fluent spanish I cursed him off rightly. Dumb a$$ obviously didn't speak his own language, spanish, but wanted to play a race card with me cause I "look" white. He didn't know what to say. Stomped onto his sidewalk and just kept on yelling. The yelling came down when he saw a large pissed off german talking back to him, my husband.

My point, everytime I get confused for a "white" person it seems like minorities have it in for me. They feel like jack A$$es when I start talking back. Once a black woman tried to fight with me over a parking spot. "You stole it from me you white bit&**!" she claimed. Well... like the rest of the confusions I let her have it. Maybe I am a racists cause I'm a harder on the blacks. After I go off in spanish and pull off the little neck thingy, that looks so ghetto but it passes for "authentic" I let them know that they are the racists 'cause she/he/they judged me for the color of my skin.

Does this happen to other white people? I mean real white people.'Cause honestly, it sucks and I have an out. But being white isn't what most minorities think it is.

they know that they can get away with crap.
Beat up the whitey and if whitey beats back he is accused of a hate crime.

For the first time in months I agree with you.

No, it shouldn't happen. Next time call the police and tell them you fear for you life this guy is trying to attack you in your car.

Deep sigh....Quakertown has sure changed over the years.

First and foremost, in defense of QUAKERTOWN: that did not happen in Quakertown. This is not about Quakertown.

What I meant: It seems that white people have to watch what they say or explain constantly what they mean (it might be offensive), or how they look at someone, because it seems to immediately go racial. That's why I gave the example. I know white people that are apologetic of certain racial jokes or they don't laugh at all or feel insulted,btw the joke isn't even about white people. But if a group of mixed minorities are saying the joke they all laugh and it's ok but if a white person says the joke there is a bit of discomfort unless they completely know this person. But if it were a minority that they didn't know and said the joke its still okay. Follow? I see this even in the news.

Younger crowds though seem not to care what color you are but it changes when they get older. Why?

Cuz as we age our own personal experiences begin to influence the thought process, unlike when we're young and are spoon fed by parents and teachers etc.

You don't think that it is possible to choose to be who you want and not allow situations to change who you are. Don't you think there is a time in our lives when we realize that if we continue in the monotnous chain reaction we'll wake-up and see in the mirror that's not who you intended to be but allowed the world or whatever to mold you into? Is it not possible to choose?

There are times where I've gone along with the white sterotype just to see but I've come to the conclusion that it doesn't matter cause I know I'm not. But when I went into a store purposely speaking spanish and was oddly followed everywhere. I just thought it was odd and spooky. My sister was a different story, she was offended beyond belief. She filled up her cart with stuff went to the cashier, had her ring everything up and then she told her she wanted to speak to the manager. She told her that she wasn't buying anything here because the store is racist. Then we left. I thought she was really going to buy all that stuff. I asked her, Do you feel better?
She said Yes.
But she didn't look like it all. Turns out she was dating a cop for a week who thought she was Italian and then ended it when he learned that he was mistaken.But that situation has resulted in her only dating latinos.

KKK?

Is it true the KKK is big here? I heard that's why they named the KonKrete Kids in Northhampton HS. I thought maybe there was some validity being that they purposely mispelled the words and most educators do not like the word kid, not even in the english papers unless it is effectual to the writing material.

BTW what is that area south 78 called? is that hellertown or bethlehem? because once I went there and thought, oh let's go to Saucon Park and look around. Nope, didn't happen. I said lets drive around the area just got scarier. I made the quickest u-turn I could.

looks like another case of a ignorant idiot blocking someone's driveway cutout. That's 100% illegal and he could have had you towed right on the spot. DON'T BLOCK DRIVEWAYS !!!
