It’s Good to be a Bitch ‘Cause Sometimes Karma Needs a Hand

being a ‘token white-Gyrl’, as i have for the working years of my life, i never dreamed that ‘RACISM’ was ever gonna be one of MY obstacles in Life. but this account has caused me to pause and wonder aloud: and this is a serious question (i hafta begin with that- if you knew me better, you’d understand why): am i the only one that is just now realizing that being a ‘Hippi’ is also a target for racism?! is it ‘new’, or am i just so slow to notice? i really don’t think….. i…. just never saw it before. or maybe it wasn’t a problem for me before. but it hit me really hard one day, when i was in trouble and wearing my ‘nice’ clothes, using my best manners, looking and smelling my best, i actually had the local police called on me for leaving a note on someone’s door as i was stranded and unable to relocate. in the note, i was asking ‘permission’ to be parked where i was -as i was TAUGHT was PROPER- since i actually couldn’t leave without assistance, to begin with. or maybe i’m COMPLETELY WRONG about this and it was the POLITE POLICE that had been called to roust me out…. jus’ sayin’….

Unload and Unwind

opened eyes There are few things in this world that anger me more than judgemental people who discriminate against those they perceive to be different or less worthy than themselves.  I never truly understood how lucky I had been in my life until a rather nasty and petty experience while at university opened my eyes to some things that once seen you can’t ignore.

One of my friends was turning 21 and her family had hired out this wonderful French Restaurant at the Gold Coast to celebrate her birthday.  It was to be a black tie affair as well as other activities that would span the week-end and although my wardrobe had sufficient evening gowns I decided that I would like something new as it was going to be a very special weekend and because I was a little spoilt and liked new clothes.

    Thanks for the re-blog and you’re right it is discrimination to judge a person solely on their skin color, appearance, dress or sexuality. It was a huge shock to me that something so stupid could actually make a difference to a person. I mean what does the color of someones skin have to do with who they are? – Oh I have posted another Leary for you to start the weekend off right.

        Yeah I do – I think because of my upbringing I was totally unprepared for the level of hostility we encountered that day simply due to Matt being dark and for me to be with him. Well – as not very zen like as it is I really can’t feel bad for what I did to get back at her. Sigh must work on being a better person I guess [shh I doubt I’ll ever really feel bad about it – bitch hurt someone I loved and was rude to me – VERY bad idea]
