african american, black, white boy. it just sounds so stupid now a days when someone is describing something that they feel the need "and I'm just stating", state their race when it's not important unless you're needing to fine someone and only know them by color. I know in the case of spontaneous situations it may come as freely a diarrhea, but usually asshole, motherf**#^$ or whatever make it sound a lot more believable.

Should I not have said that he was black because it sounds discriminatory against blacks? Maybe I shouldn't have said he was big because it discriminates against large people. Maybe I shouldn't have said he was a guy because it discriminates against males.

I was just providing description for the sake of being descriptive but if it makes you feel better I'll edit it out.

They'd probably be black anyway, judging that from the fact that I live near Philadelphia and notice a problem with them breaking into houses and stealing expensive electronic equipment.

Yeah I was being super-critical as usual, sorry it wasn't what you said it was how I perceived it.

Second post, I believe. The thing is, you can't judge a whole race based on 99% of their population.

I then pulled into the gas station to go get a soda, when i went into the store i didnt know the guy had stomped it in reverse and then got out of his car he came in the store while i was leaning in the fridge to get a dr. peper. he came in the store yelling "what the f%^& man you stupid white ass telling me how to drive" i turned arround to see what it was he came up and pushed my chest in, i reached back to my left pocket and the clerk saw so he picked up his phone and pretended to call 911, and in an indian accent said get out of my store you hoodlem or i will call the cops, (then pretending to have reached the cops he said yes i have a thug in my store). I pulled my knife out and popped it open then the guy left. I still always keep my knife in my back left pocket, its always been there because of working for my dads construction company i had to cut open alota shit. Just gald it was there that day haha.
You didn't deserve that, but if no harm is done, then you don't need to go out of your way to yell at someone.

This morning a guy in front of me was holding up the line of cars (Now me and him) when i was trying to park, and i was trying to avoid being late, so i floored it and squeezed in between his car and the curb, then swerved into the nearest parking space, which happened to have the guy who had parked the car next to it talking to someone, even though he had gotten out a while ago.

I open my door and he comes to my window and starts yelling about "I SWEAR IF YOU EVER NEARLY HIT ME WITH YOUR CAR AGAIN I'LL FUCKING BEAT THE SHIT OUT OF YOU!". Guess what buddy? I didn't hit you. I didn't hurt you. I didn't even hit the car that i squeezed past. For god's sake, I even saw you and purposely turned in further over to not hit you.

Even more bothersome, it's some arrogant white guy who just needs to create beef with someone for the hell of it. Okay, fine, you can try to beat me up, I'm really not intimidated. His reaction was ridiculous, because I was in full control of the situation. Hell, my pulling in fast made it so he didn't have a chance to get in front of me!

Now, the other guy, steve, that I squeezed past, also got out and started yelling, but at least he had a legitimate thing to complain about, I fucking scared the hell out of him by pulling that crazy maneuver past him, and if i had hit him at that angle and speed it could be pretty fucking bad. I mean the same thing goes where I didn't hit him, but I understand if thousands of dollars worth of damages are at stake here and it was a very real possibility at the moment, but hell, the white guy who i "nearly hit" (parked 3 feet from at a sudden stop) was in a much safer position.

Later on I did apologize to Steve about the crazy maneuver i made, but the other guy? Couldn't find him, and frankly he's of the kind that will want to hold it against you just to make sure he can raise his fist at the next mistake. Physical threats aren't particularly intimidating, and that's why no one takes those "OG's" seriously.

The relevance? You don't need to yell at people who make mistakes, most of them understand that they fucked up, and if you haven't noticed recently, you're not exactly perfect.

No harm done? Don't blow up too much about it. If you can't keep your cool in minuscule "look what almost happened" shit, then you're in for deep, deep shit when things actually DO fuck up.
In some other time and space, I found time for a new signature.

Why was my post deleted?!

It was on topic, legitimate, and something personal that happened to me several years, I don't understand why it was moved to the dumping grounds.

That's an awesome idea, carrying a knife in your back pocket. I'll have to do that too, except with a machete.

edit by joe - no racist terms. this is a warning, next time you'll get a ban.
