So, here’s a bit of a backstory.
This morning at my Intro to Humanities class, something really ticked me off.
The professor gave out a Q&A lecture on religion and when we came to the question on faith, I raised my hand. A rather foolish decision I did because nobody else did so too, and I now understand why. I’m Agnostic, so my belief is meehhh; I don’t believe in god as much, and at the same time I don’t see anything wrong with looking for answers and so forth, I just tend to be realistic. I would’ve finished relieved until this red headed girl in my class panned my opinion.
"That’s because you’re an ignorant dirty Mexican who thinks hanging out with white people makes you smarter.”
Hearing those words made me cringe. I am Hispanic-American (half-Dominican, half-Colombian), so hearing that ignorant hypocrite say all of that bullshit just made me wanna slap her! Apparently this bitch has been known to piss everyone off, from slamming the “N” word to blacks, to talking shit about another white girl who had a child. Bottom line, she’s a catty little cunt rag.
One of the classmates, a Vietnam veteran stood up and told the girl off;
"You could call somebody out for doing something foolish, or for saying something foolish, but haven’t your parents ever told you Actions speak louder than words? Regardless of religion or race, god loves every single child in this planet."
He told his side of the question about how he found faith in god when he was almost shot and killed in battle. God bless that guy.
But it wasn’t exactly over. After class, the same girl slapped me in the face and dragged me to the end of the hallway, pulling my hair. She then snatched my sketch book, ripping each page and crumpling up drawings I worked my ass off, while tossing out papers on the sketch book on the ground.
She kept cussing out at me, that I shouldn’t be here! and that I should “go back to Mexico.”
She tossed my book and left.
Here are five of the pages she destroyed with her vicious attitude, all because I have a different opinion, I’m a different race, I believe in a different religion, I’m different.
She has not won this at all. If she thinks I’m just going to toss out my pride and work, she should think twice because I’m keeping my sketchbook. Not only did the dipshit miss a few pages, these drawings are still torn, but I don’t want to throw them out. I don’t want her to see me feel vulnerable because of a few pages she tore up with her bare hands all because I spoke out from the silence. This isn’t high school, it’s college you bitch. The other pages are still safe, while the torn ones will be kept safe in a folder.
Don’t let stereotypes and ignorance turn you into a monster. Everyone is equal, and everyone should have the same justice. No one should be mistreated for being different. Please PLEASE reblog this so I can show to people at my college that this type of cruelty isn’t right!
