Everyday racism: Your stories
Everyone is prejudiced
As a young white male, you don't think I face many of the same issues that blacks do? Try getting on an airplane and being seated next to a child, just to have that child moved by a parent or flight attendant. Nothing quite as embarrassing as the people on the plane thinking you are a pedo that can't be trusted next to the kid. Same goes anytime I walk by a park, or by the kids play area in a mall, I immediately feel the glare of parents hawkeyeing me, just waiting for me to execute my master plan of kidnapping one of their kids. Nevermind the fact I hate kids and want zero to do with them.
Everyone is scared of someone in life. Sit around and call it racist all you want, or just learn that people are prejudiced and don't let it bother you.
