My best friend growing up was black. He is going to college, and three parents of students in the band are not letting their kids go to school now just because he is in the band and is black, they actually called him on the phone and told him that and that "it's the way we were brought up." Now, we aren't in the hickerbilly south, we are in Michigan, and the city (Kalamazoo) has a large black population. How the **** can people actually still be this way?


CLARIFICATION EDIT: I asked him for more details. He said the kids are in Kalamazoo Central high school (where Obama spoke at their graduation), and their parents are forbidding them from attending extra-curricular activities. He said they are in the band. I misunderstood him, but yea.


Because like there aren't any black people in KC high school

That does sound pretty ****ed man. Could you explain their reasoning a bit more? I'm not sure I understood what you meant about the band.

The school band? If that's the case - good, he shouldn't have to deal with their bigotry.

Oh, Kalamazoo, how I love you and hate you at the same time. Let those dickwads be racist, and if stuff actually goes down, contact the ACLU. Let the racists isolate themselves and become less and less a part of society.

By the sounds of things even if they let him in he still would have been treated like shit, so it's probably better that he didn't.

this is college, right? so, the kids are over 18? then what the hell does it matter what their parents say?

I like black people, they make my shoes shiny!

More shine boy, more shine! Don't make me whip you!

Seriously though, the world's still full of racists. Like there was a whole racist shabang or something in Bradford a few days/ weeks ago.
They made me do push ups in drag

I'm gonna have a really hard time if we're both cannibals and racists.

Don't dress as a whore, he'll thump you.

Is he the only black guy there...?

So last year, I put some potatoes in this jar and forgot about them. Today, I found them, and when I opened the jar, there is a puddle at the bottom and it smells like alcohol. If I drink this, do you think I will die, or have I made potato vodka?

I suggested the same about the ACLU, and he said they aren't actually preventing him from attending school or anything like that, so i dont think there is anything he can do about that

I call bullshit on this. I know Michigan is cold, but how could he be the only black kid to try and join the band?

EDIT: I just remembered that the Gibson factory used to be in Kalamazoo. heh, cool

This is why I am embarresed to be white. It doesn't matter the way you were brought up. I'm sure if I was brought up to hate black people, evantually I would realize how wrong it is. Just the other night I watched the movie Crash that basically deals with the same type of story. It's just a ****ing color, why is it the biggest problem in this country?
#24
Sure I make racist jokes all the time, but it's always disappointing to see someone who's legitimately racist.

Most of the racists I know are more like "lol@black people behind their back" racist, not like, KKK racist. And then you have the "closet" racist who will claim not to be racist, but he's the guy who locks the doors to his Prius when he sees a black guy on the street.... yeah.

this kind of sucks especially since the tone itself is pretty liberal. I actually attended k college and student taught at norrix. I spent a lot of time at K Central. This is really surprising. You should bring it up to the papers.

I'm sure everyone understands the hate for Black people stereotypes, like being in gangs, and wearing their pants all the way to the ground, and talking with the most ridiculous slang. But that's to be expected. I'm sure the black people that don't do that are ashamed to be black because of them, just like some people are ashamed to be white because of Hate groups, or slavery.

Suprisingly, the North seems to be more racist than the south now...

Michigan is in the Midwest.

michigan is in the Midwest.

It's one of the states that borders Canada, I think it can be considered North.

Well racism won't disappear over night. Another generation or 2 and we'll all be ok with black dudes bangin' our sisters and our moms.

It's understanable. People used to make fun of me cause I look white, I'm 100% Mexican, and I went to school in Greenfield, a total Mexican town, and it just doesn't feel good. They used to make fun of me by telling me things in Spanish, not knowing I understood, and when I would tell them off they were shocked. Everything changed in HS though, alot more people moved there and now it's pretty diverse.
