"chill babeh. you take everything so personally and you blow things out of proportion. and it overrides all your good qualities, it's the reason you lost a lot of your new friends."
myspace's truth box. another item on the internet meant to hurt people. thanks tom. idk, why, but this hurt me a little. i feel really adolescent and immature for actually taking this personally...even a little. but i took things personally because i don't tolerate racism. at all. no jokes, no little one liners, nothing. and that's what is constantly said around here. i just got pulled out of my safe haven in new jersey to the south, 30 mins from where the klan assembled in the south the most about 40 years ago. (stone mountain, ga) i live in dacula, a town that isn't even known by the natives of georgia. but i digress...i don't tolerate racism, and i called people out on it and get accused of blowing things out of proportion...is it wrong that i don't tolerate words that used to kill many people of all races and creeds? is it wrong that i don't think bigotry is a laughing matter? i guess i'm too mature for my age or something, because a lot of kids in my generation find racism and prejudice funny. i unfortunately used to but i corrected myself. my parents tell me that i'm on a different level than most teens, and i guess that's true. they crack a joke and smile but i think about the people they are insulting and what they went through. i think about how i wish to crush classes in society when it comes to race, age, gender, lifestyles and beliefs. i wish to make our constitution truthful, word for word.
