(10) Things White Folks Do That Irritate Black People:



There are times when things need to be said.  And this is one of those times. 

As life would have it, I, like many Black people have had my share of moments with white folks that could have gotten ugly, had it not been for my upbringing.  From my experience, it just appears that Black people and white folks live in two entirely different parallels and our perspectives about life are birthed from them.

Really, haven't we all been asked dumb questions by white folks?  And why do these people approach us with such ignorance of who we are as a people? 

Years ago, I once had a white coworker ask me if all Black people know each other.  Seriously.  I was floored.  And don't even get me started on being complimented by some whites because, clearing throat..."I speak well."  Why the hell wouldn't I?

Well, I'm in (that kind of mood) today and I'm going to drop a bomb today and educate some who really want to understand why they got cussed out by one of their Black coworkers last week:

So without much more adjure, I'll just get to the point:

The Ten Things White Folks Do That Irritate Black People

  1. Putting your hands in a Black woman's hair.  An absolute no-no
  2. Asking personal  or just outright dumb questions without the benefit of study
  3. Assuming every Black person knows each other just because we speak to each other
  4. Following us in stores but never asking if we need help
  5. Staring.  What the hell are you looking at me for?
  6. Being condescending and aloof
  7. Assuming every Black man is a criminal.  Really?  And who f*cked up the economy again?
  8. Assuming Black women with long hair have weave.  Yes!  Black women have long hair.
  9. Getting mad at successful Black people
  10. That ALL Black people are uneducated
These are just a few of mine, but I'm sure, many can understand where I'm coming from.

What about assuming that all black women are 'baby mommas." or that all black people grew up in single parent homes.

I totally agree with you on the uneducated part. They think that we all talk ghetto and cuss a lot. I get that kind of stuff too. People assume automatically that I'm an Oreo if I talk proper. The sad part is that some blacks will think that as well which makes them kind of dumb.

fuck white people. I sure ain't met a good white person ever in my life. What about the white claim that racism swings both ways? Yes ignore the fact that blacks CANNOT do to whites what whites have done to blacks, it's impossible without numerical advantage and power. And if they had that, doubt they'd stoop so low. White people are proof there can't be a god. A "god" couldn't have been so stupid as to create a race as destructive and vile as whites.

There was a recent article posted on the Huffington Post indicating that whites have still have a negative view of Blacks.

My first reaction was: really? And then I became a little indignant at the presumptuousness of the article. As if Black people even care at this point.

Many of us are simply realistic in our view that white folks in general are psychopaths and are simply spiritually, morally or psychologically incapable of acting with decency. Basically; they are an irrational people, depraved, and evil pathalogically.

Look at the history of Europe--it's very clear. Rape, torture, invasion, war, inhumanity off the charts, et al.

White people are not of God--many are atheist or pagan. They are not benevolent at all.

When assessing their behavior, it i s just clear that we must note the obvious.
