    Racist Afro Jamaican

    People always look all incredulous when I say that any time I've thought myself the victim of racism its always come from a black person..

    We're getting new windows put in my daughter's room today and the men showed up a lil while ago. I answer the door and two of them standing there..one black one white..I say "hi, you're here to install the windows?"...black one says "yes, are either of the owners home? They have to inspect everything and sign that everything is satisfactory when the job is done"..I say "I am the owner"..he raises his eyebrow and says "oh"...no apology or anything though the white one looks real embarrassed for him. Make it worse, he's JA and now he wanna talk all nice to me telling me he like my daughters's lil pink atv and how he send one just like it to Jamaica for his daughter. Someone else woulda put something in the ice tea I give him.

    Here is the one story that sticks out for me.

    There was a crew of girls I used to hang out when I was younger from when we were likkle bit. One of them decided to throw a party at her dad's house. She moved back in to go to post-secondary. Now she was the only white girl in out crew.

    And where her dad lived was in one of the new high-end estate developments just going up on the edge of the city.

    She invited a few new friends she had met. I cant remember how she met them in our city but the main point is that they were African-American. I know one of the guys she was kinda checking for so this was her way of having him around to get to know him.

    So me and my other friend were helping her set things up...running to the store to grab things, sorting out the food in the kitchen bring extra chairs, etc etc.

    Now these black Americans sh invited had arrived early because they werent sure about directions and if they could find the area because it was still kinda bush living back then. So they were there when me and the next friend arrived with some coolers and food and such. The other friend was in the kitchen organizing the food and thing.

    We all are in the kitchen talking sh*t and teasing the white friend about something or the other. The black American she liked felt like were we outta line and said something like "how do let your help talk to you like that?"

    We all whip around with WTF? looks on our faces. She of course says "these girls are my BFF's how dare you assume they are the fukking hired help? We don't do hired help around here?"

    Then if he wasnt so dark his ass would have turned all different shades of pink at that moment.
    He said back where he was from, the only time you see black ppl in neighborhoods like this are if they are the help. (I think he was southern I cant remember) So he was confused that a white girl had so many black friends for starters and that we all ran in the same circles. Nevermind the irony that he was a black guy checking a white girl in a predominantly white area.

    But anyway, when tempers cooled off it lead to a good discussion about the expectations black people have of others within their own group. And how we internalize many of the same stereotypes of ourselves that we get so upset about if a non-white person believed in.

    This is 2013 hun. Black ppl live everywhere. Being honest, black ppl may stand out yes but who the heck goes to someone door in this day and age assuming the black person answering the door is the maid. That's some real 60's mess.
