    Here's another story that will put HR's comment into perspective.

    lol, you may think that I am siding with him?

    I worked at night in a hospital and had to deal with the admitting office.

    I walked in one night and the clerk was trying to get some info from a Mexican couple who were expecting a child.

    From around the corner I was listening to the conversation and heard the clerk ask the couple, "Que es el nombre de telephone?"

    She was asking them for the name of their telephone!
    I was laughing because of her frustration and her question.

    With that, she walked around corner and said something about Mexicans and them not learning English.

    I got effing indignant and went to translate for them. When I finished I was really ticked off and left the office.

    BTW, She was about 6 foot, as Germanic as they come and had a really hard attitude when she was there-it would have been a good fight had we locked up!

    I hated her with a pink and purple passion for a long time afterwards.

    -----------

    Hmmm, is she really racist?

    Setup? A small admitting office, desk in the middle, with chairs front and back.

    Same scenario, but with a caucasian couple who were expecting.

    The woman was heavy duty into the Lamaze thing. She was sucking air and kept chanting, "I am going to have my baby here!"

    Ann stood up at the desk, put her closed fists on it, leaned over and hissed at the woman, "YOU ARE NOT GOING TO HAVE THAT BABY IN MY OFFICE!"

    The woman stopped breathing and went quiet.
    She had her baby in the OB ward.

    Now I am thinking that this beeyotch is crazy! She hates everyone!

    --------------

    As time went by, I found out that she wanted kids very badly and was unable to conceive!

    AHA! She hated everyone with serviceable uterus!


    Years later I told her about the "nombre" incident and we had a wonderful laugh about it.

    She wasn't a racist, she was crazy!

    ----------------

    How crazy?

    The day admitting clerk was a black woman who was just as mentally ill.

    She was pregnant with her first child and the same night clerk told her that she was going to have a white baby.

    Black babies are born pale and their skin gradually darkness at time goes on.

    When the baby was delivered the woman freaked out! I could only imagine the scene from "Alien". That didn't come out of me!!!!!


    We worked together for a few years and I learned about people, race and culture from them both. It was wonderful and always will think kindly of those two people.

    We were a true rainbow coalition that never, ever hestiated to help each other out. We laughed about ourselves, our backgrounds and the color of our skin.

    -------------------

    Maybe HR has a problem with ebonics. I sometimes I listen to a rap song and cannot make heads or tails of the lyrics.

    Does that make me racist?

    Just curious Richard, but do you see that statement as being racist ?
    Lumping all Germans into a specific catagory could be called racist.

    It's part of a joke.

    It's from the perspective of always wanting to wrestle with a tall German woman. The ones I have met are shorter than I am.

    I was trying to be pornographic, not political.

    ------------------

    Seriously,

    I was being racist-that's the point.

    How can people ever get over themselves if they cannot be honest?

    I looked at this woman and iommediately labeled her a bigot-that she looked the way she did and the tele-fono-name-o deal surely didn't help.

    So, I was being racist, judgemental and probably a little sexist too.

    What happens now?

    ---------------------

    The part of racism that is blunt and kinda stupid? When people run around pointing at others about racism.

    I will take anyone to task about racism and prejudice.

    Here's the rub to the "Sunday/racism" story.

    The class continued and the woman who headed it-she was a danged sexy Mid Eastern woman -there I go again!-looked at the three woman who had raised their hand and asked them this.....


    Have you ever been behind a car with an elderly person driving?

    The room laughed.

    And have you ever cursed at them for driving slow?


    Tee Hee!

    So we were all prejudiced, at that moment, against elderly drivers.

    ------------

    I worked with this guy that would stop in the office and BS for a minute.

    He soon came to call me 'his n-----'.

    No tension, no harm-one day I asked him, "Can I ask you a question?"

    "Sure."

    I prefaced the question by saying I wasn't trying to be insulting-

    I said, "Aren't we all n------?"

    He grinned and said something like "you got it" and the funniest part about it is that he would see me in the HALLWAY and say, "how's my n-----?" like it was nothing.

    I didn't mention that he was black. Could THAT be construed as racism?


    Now that we got that out the way, I did call my two co-workers 'crazy'. I hope I didn't offend anyone that suffers from mental problems, with that statement!

    I loved this commercial in it's original form.


    Some nerdy white dude that..

    flys up in a hovercraft.
    dressed like a moron.
    knows who you and you wife are.
    can't pronounce your name,
    and wants to give you money?

    I guess I am in.....


    You can call me anything you want. Just make sure the name on the check is correct?

    Okay?

    I was in the kitchen and had the most racist thought imaginable.


    Hey, If it wasn't for your brown skinned neighbors to the south, all you all would not have guacamole, tortilla chips, nachos or salsa to eat on Super Bowl Sunday.

    You's be eating that salty brown or green onion dip made from the packet, with those nasty, saltier Ruffles potato chips.

    Rock on, my brothers and sisters!

    --------------

    I was having a crisis of conscience...



    WE invented the mashed bean, YOU put it into the can.

    You can have that, with melted Velveeta on game day.

    That's my only concession.

    I had to chime in on the whole HR thing...

    Ive had the "privalege" of meeting the man. He struck me as a biggoted, over paid arse that had no connection to real life or how the world actually worked.

    Yet Nevada has been electing him since before I was in high school

    And I have a feeling that his current comments will only serve to get him MORE votes.

    Nevadans are cirtifiable I'm afraid...

    LOL, My dad used that saying. It translates as "Are we going by hand?" and loosely means we will walk hand in hand. Or, we are even and saying that takes the place of a handshake.
