You fucking racist

I had the wonderful joy that most people get to experience of perusing facebook while trying to find something better to do with my time and I happened upon a post that a friend shared. The quote of the post was “I wonder if white people have to worry about whether the person interviewing them for a job is racist, because I do, every time”. This struck a cord with me, not because I immediately felt sympathy for the person posting this, more that I honestly had a couple of questions.

1.) Can this person ever confirm that they didn’t get a job because the person interviewing them was racist, or is that an excuse for lack of qualification

2.) Would this person even want to work for a racist anyway?

Beside those questions I had to think about a lot of different things, in case the reader doesn’t realize, I’m white, so I have a perspective that is often silenced in the debate about race relations, or rather, the lack of debate in race relations. All white people are racist, the institutions are racist, everything is racist which is why minorities can never succeed… except they have.

After the 2008 election the news media and political parties were all patting themselves on the back congratulating each other for being so progressive and color blind that the elected the first black president. The rest of the country really just kept going on with their lives because this hasn’t been an issue for the majority of Americans for a very long time, if you ask your average white guy on the street if he’s racist he will respond “no” and he will mean it, you would have to create a brand new psychological metric to prove otherwise, which of course they did because if minorities don’t have a plight to hyper focus on then they may actually start looking into political issues and the DNC might have to actually give a shit. It is rather difficult to have a black man get the majority of votes in a presidential election and then turn around and say America is racist, yet somehow they find a way to do it over and over again. This power struggle has become so evident that we have actually gone backwards in time just so the Democratic party can continue their diatribe that America is racist, and the only way to cleanse your guilt of this sin is to agree with Barack Obama, the messiah who came to end, or rather begin a whole new, chapter on racial strife in America.

Back to my original point about these racist job interviews. Since I have the freedom of speech for the time being I am not going to censor any real thoughts on this subject and I’m going to give a perspective that would invariably be silenced in any real public forum. Let’s look at this from the interviewer’s point of view, not a racist interviewer, but as if I were the interviewer. We have a candidate who is fully qualified, and even let’s open the dream world that doesn’t actually exist and say we have a white and black person who are completely equal on paper so it is completely fair. Here are the potential worries that any interviewer would have to go through when this person comes in for the job, they are real and undeniable concerns even for the most “progressive” person.

1.) Is it racist for me to enforce the dress code of my place of business? sagging pants, wearing a belt, no dew rags, no hats, no offensive T-shirts, and a generally professional appearance. I know, as a white man, approaching a black person and telling them their attire is not fitting for this business they will immediately tell me I’m racist.

2.) Is it racist for me to request they speak in a professional manner? Dialects are real, people from Michigan speak differently than people from the south let’s say (I could diatribe on the bigotry against Southern whites but that will be another article), but no matter how much academia wants to shove it down our throats, English is a language and has rules, no lawyer would walk into a courtroom and spew whatever people are trying to pawn off as “cultural dialect” for African Americans, we all know what it is and I’m going to finally address it for you directly, it’s poor English and horrific grammar and should never be encouraged, but as has been stated, that would be racist to say, right?

3.) I don’t care if my customer or your co-worker are also black, you can not say nigger in my establishment, or any other farcical example of that word “nigga, nig, what the fuck ever Kanye calls you all these days”. Is that racist?

So in conclusion or SJW on facebook wants us to know that white people with all their privilege will never know of the boogeyman hiding behind the door at human resources known as racism, probably because it doesn’t really exist, or if it does it is so incredibly rare that we never hear about it since there are in fact laws against it and these people would be prosecuted for such hiring practices and even then, when we do hear about them they are almost reaching to prove that it is racism as oppose to someone violating long standing rules that have been in place for years until some random asshat wants to take a stand against “the man” and the ACLU finally has a reason to continue living (I’m reminded of the Muslim Wal-Mart employee who was given every chance that no white man would ever get and still sued).

I don’t have a solution for racism, I think for the most part it isn’t an actual issue, I think it’s a very convenient excuse that many use to explain things they don’t want to take responsibility for. Racism can’t explain the crushing amount of drug use, single motherhood, and black on black violence in neighborhoods, culture explains that. A culture that holds up being a “thug” and focuses on money and bitches more than it does striving for an education or freeing yourself from a bad situation. Why does the black community hold up morons like Kanye West or whomever the rapper of the week is this week as opppose to Neil Degrasse Tyson or plenty of the other successful black men who probably lived their lives being told they weren’t black enough or that they were “acting white” ?  The answer is because it is far easier to play the victim than to do anything to solve the problem yourself, the final thing I will leave you with is the fact that the Black lives matter movement is funded by a white billionaire, how much do you really think it’s about race?
