Watch: ‘Woke White People’ Carry A Heavy Burden (Man Speaks of His Personal Embarrassment)

*I must admit, as a self-proclaimed deep thinker, I often wonder is there anything at all woke white people can do to help heal all the damage of their forefathers. Anything that may would be appreciated, at least, and not labeled “suspect.” As someone who has traveled, broke bread with people of just about every culture and religion, and hold dear friends of the same, my heart goes out to the many who continue to carry burdens placed on them, in spite of their beliefs against it. I have this tendency to personalize everything. Its my own strategy when I am attempting to understand something, or empathize with something; whether I am in agreement with it or not because dang, if I only paid attention to things I agree with, I’d still be  as shallow as I was in my youth.

But I do find myself getting frustrated when I suffer because of someone else’s crap; say, now no one is able to have access to something because one fool f**ked it up for us all! 

You may have seen the video below already, but I swear, some things bear repeating — if for no other reason than to serve as a reminder that not all white folk is ignorant, racist and prejudiced.

In this 2012 YouTube video, viewed 55K times, one woke person of the Caucasian persuasion decides to voice his frustration on the topic saying, “America will suffer because of what we did to Black people…and so much more.Continue reading

‘Great Service, [We] Don’t Tip Black People’ Left on Receipt for Va. Waitress

*Instead of just eating, paying and getting the phuck out, one 20-something white couple decided to write a despicable note on the receipt of the waitress they say had just provided “Great service” to them.

The note on the stained receipt read, “great service don’t tip black people.”

Now I know racism is still alive and well in these United States of America, but why do I feel like vomiting every time I see it in black and white?

Of course waitress Kelly Carter was stunned, and her boss at Anita’s New Mexico Style Cafe in Ashburn, Virginia, Tommy Tellez Sr., embarrassed.

He told WJLA: “I’m appalled. This is so disheartening.” He says Carter is such a loyal employee and beloved by the customers.

“She has a following,” Tellez said. “Her philosophy for customer service is way beyond the norm, and we’re really happy to have her.”

According to what Carter told WJLA, the couple acted like anyone else. They gave no indication whatsoever that they were racists. She said the woman even complimented the food. Continue reading

*Though it is only a bandage on a wound that will not be healed anytime soon, one family may be able to take some solace in the fact that the four men who harrassed and ultimately killed their loved one, has been ordered by a judge to pay restitution.

The Justice Department ordered Deryl Paul Dedmon, John Aaron Rice, Dylan Wade Butler and William Kirk Montgomery, each of whom were convicted and sentenced to prison, to pay restitution in the amount of $840,000 in connection with the killing of James Craig Anderson, the 49-year-old victim of a series of hate crimes committed by them.

The four men were convicted in 2012, of violating the “Matthew Shepard” and “James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Act.” You may recall, teen Matthew Shepherd’s death was the result of a homophobic hate crime; while the death of James Byrd, Jr., a 49-year-old black man, was racially motivated when he was dragged at the rear of a pickup truck driven by three white men.

The men in this case targeted Anderson in the parking lot of a motel in Jackson, Miss. Then two of them brutally beat him, and another hit him with his pickup truck.

You will no longer have to look up the word “Savages” — just refer to the description above moving forward. Continue reading
