People Suck

Okay so I don't generally go out, I don't like the whole crowded bar and dance scene too often. I am a home body. But last night I had an itch and went out with a group to celebrate a kinda friend's birthday.

It was great, for a while. I relaxed, drank some beer and even had my favorite shot, chocolate cake. Then these other people showed up, people I don't really know but know some of the other people in our group.

These people were ignorant and stupid and I can't believe they exist in a civilized society. The insane racist remarks that came out of their mouths were disgusting and I was ashamed to even be sitting at a table with them.

I am not a shrinking violet so I pointed out that they were idiots, of course that just made things worse. They started getting louder, and their remarks became more off the wall.

I just don't understand how people can believe that it is alright to act like that. And it made me mad that everyone else pretty much sat around laughing uncomfortably about the whole thing, or ignored it. Why sit there with someone who is being such a racist idiot?

I wish people had the balls to stand up to people like that a little more, take them down a peg and help them to at least see that their remarks are not welcome in that setting. I don't fool myself into believing they will stop feeling the way they feel, I would just like them to realize its unacceptable in a crowded bar with mixed races to loudly proclaim your racism.

So, people suck and I just wanted to vent that to you all today. I hope you have a great one.

Good for you for standing up. Some people do suck. *sigh* It sucks that you went out for a little fun and had to deal with this. :(

Good for you! I'm glad that you said something. I would have too.

I am sad to see that it's still such an issue in our supposedly civilized society.

It is sad, isn't it? Sometimes I wonder what kind of family environment they grow up in to hold such thinking. Good for you for standing up!
