I had a massage.
This was my 4th one this year by the same holistic massage therapist.
When I walked in he just looked at me kind of mean.
I was hesitant on even staying. He looked sickly like he'd lost too much weight.
But I stayed because my body has been in pain specifically my hand.
He massaged me. During the massage he made a racist comment (I"m a black female).
He told me on a documentary on people from central america and africa the people had so much energy and that I need to reach back to my genes and become alive. And I thought first of all why are you talking to me especially about race. I'm here to get a massage and relax. I was ticked off. Then later on when he was massaging my neck he blew on my face and was humming and got all up in my face. I jumped up from the table and I said I want to leave. I paid my money and a client out in the reception area white woman looked at me all hateful. I ran out.
I didn't understand why he started to act this way. Earlier this year in July I didn't show up for an appointment because I forgot. He called me on the phone and said you had an appointment and I said oh sorry I forgot. I didn't make any other appointments with this freak. This morning my back is hurting and red, my arm and hand is swollen and red. racist back

Well,in the 3 yrs i have lived in Indiana i can honestly say that Its still 1940 here. id say roughly 7 out of 10 are not worth knowing. Good luck trying to do much of anything financially. Im a disabled vet with guaranteed income and good credit ,still was denied financing for a mattress!!Im half Hispanic/half white but obviously i look more like the Hispanic . my last name is another dead giveaway, trust me when i say people read that and immediately go into a state of " i can do nothing for you". they are the most staunch racists i have ever encountered drunk on entitlement that vote republican no matter who is running.
How does your bad credit have anything to do with racial discrimination??? If you had paid your bills on time you could get credit easily. If you were financially responsible in the first place you wouldn't be trying to finance a mattress. Jesus.

Pearlogirl, If you do not have a college degree, then you can't expect to get a high pay job anywhere. That's a fact. Also, you need to change your negative attitude -- if you think along those lines, it will inevitable show in your body language. You sound very angry with low expectations. No one wants to hire an angry person. Employers look for the best qualified candidate with a positive attitude. Don't expect people to give you a job, you have to prove to the employer that you would be a valuable asset to the company. If that does not work, then you may have to consider relocating to a blue state. Hope that helps.

Although I think your post was unnecessarily rude, your point is correct. I personally interview people a lot and I agree with you, while I agree in a nicer manner. People really do need to work on their interviewing skills, communication skills, and writing skills. You do not interview with someone for a job in the same manner you talk to your buddies on the street or in the house. There are jobs out there, they are hard to find and you have to work for them, but they are out there. No they may not be for a lot of money, but some money is better than no money. Unfortunately, race is never going to be out of it, there are always going to be racist people out there who will be how they are, but you have to have it in you to rise above that. You can start doing that by presenting yourself as an educated person, interviewing like an educated person and counting your blessings instead of counting your misfortunes.

The people who most often scream racism share an interesting and common characteristic. They often find themselves unsuccessful in productive areas where hard work and education are the keys to success. Rather than blame their failure on their own lack of motivation and lack of education, they take the easy way out by insisting that they failed because the people around them are racist and committed to making sure that virtually anything they undertake does not succeed. If no one in their immediate community is of another race, then they blame their collective failure on a larger, global conspiracy designed by worldwide racists to ensure that all people of their race fail. Such an approach makes failure much easier to justify than the alternative which is to accept that the failure is one of their own making; the result of a general lack of motivation and education amongst their members. The tendency of a particular race to blame their failures on other races is common to all races. So if you’re constantly screaming racist, take a good look at your own level of success, motivation and education. You might find out that it’s you, not them, who’s the racist. Chances are, the next time you look in a mirror, you’ll see the racist who has contributed the most to your failure looking back at you.
