forgot to comment on the article, silly me…

my mind doth boggle – I’m Canadian, and maybe that’s my problem in that I was never raised to think of anyone other than equal than myself. I can’t even begin to wrap my mind around judging someone because of their color, even though I’ve had experiences down here in PA that have made my blood burn.

racism isn’t always visible.

a pox on their houses, as it were…

  1. I’ve seen all kinds of ignorance in my adult life, but I’m not actually surprised at all that this kind of thing is still happening. The kids at our 98% white school have no idea at all about Martin Luther King, Jr, or the Civil Right’s movement. They are ignorant of all other cultures, and their teachers and administrators just let them graduate year after year, ignorant and prejudiced.

    But in all honesty, I don’t know why this guy was dumb enough to say that he wouldn’t sell the house to “colored people.” I’ve always thought that if I was in a situation where I didn’t want to rent to a particular person (like an unmarried couple who were planning to live in sin on my property), I would come up with some way other than flat-out stating that and getting myself sued. So, that guy was obviously not from the deep end of the gene pool himself.
