I love all people. I really do. I don't care where you're from, how much money you have, don't have, who you call God or don't, rather you swing to the left, right, or at all, rather you like boys, girls, hell like them both. I certainly don't care what race box you check on job applications, leave it blank for all I care. Needless to say, I don't care how people identify themselves in terms of class, religion, politics, sexuality, and race. I can get along and work with just about anybody given that they're not evil. However, even with that said there are seven white people I just can't with anymore.
Now, I've been going to school and working with Anglos (a.k.a white people) since I was a little boy. And to all ya'll readers who wanna jump and correct a brutha, stay seated. Yes, I do realize that the term Anglo implies that one is of British descent, but I like to refer to white people as Anglos because it makes my heart smile, so lemme lone. Any who, I've experienced a lot of different white folks. Thankfully, there are white people out there who are aware of racism, their privilege, and do use it for good. Sadly, on the other end of the spectrum are white people who are about as aware as Hitler at the Million Man March. These particular Anglos need to be checked and stopped. Lord Jesus I have rolled my eyes, clutched my pearls, fake smiled and nodded at these unaware white folks. In my best Eliza Dushku voice from Bring It On "Be, be be aware!"
I'm not suggesting these white people apologize for being white. That's dumb. They can't help being born white any more than I could help being born black. Don't apologize for your golden ticket, just stop making asinine questions like "Did you go to school?" or thinking "He speaks so well" is a compliment. Stick a fork in me I'm done.
So, in no particular order I decided to profile and list out the seven different white people I just can't with anymore. To the white people who don't prescribe to any of the below straight fuckery and are actually aware, please continue. But to the white people who are about to read about themselves, you're so unaware you probably don't think this article is about you.
