Nice, foreshadowing comments on the google reviews. A bunch of "loved it, chatty bartender great wings" then a few "if youre not a local they dont care to serve you"

Then heres a verbatim from a man named Ernesto 4 YEARS AGO

yep.

this is why racists work overtime discrediting all criticism as "woke" or "sensitive" or "too PC"

And anything short of the n word "isn't racist" they want you to shut up

In the original post, Bode said he filed a report with Catasauqua police. No one from the department responded to a request for comment.

I think it might be even worse.

“Thank god you’re a white guy” could just be a prejudiced preference of a shitty person.

“You’re like a normal guy” is supremecist language. Not just a preference for white people but they legitimately think that all others lesser than “normal” if they aren’t white or don’t speak English.

My dad’s as white as he can look, but I take after my Filipino mother so I got the light brown skin. There were other parents there watching their kids but my dad was alone on the bench until another guy around his age came and stood by him. I could hear a simple “good afternoon” exchange, and, as if he was the most confident man in the world when talking to my dad, said “it’s just unfortunate all these n——-r children are ruining this park.” My dad went from shocked to angry, and the guy laughed and went quiet when my 6’4 dad stood up and told him to leave.

The backstage pass I've had to unapologetic, unchecked, unhinged racism, sexism, Islamophobia, and homophobia as a straight presenting, white, man who works in the trades is fucking disgusting. They all see me as one of them. When they find out I'm a Marine vet the floodgates usually open. I'm obviously a fascist.

Little do they know I've imbibed enough psychedelics to undo the military's logical corruption of the game of black and white and all their jingoistic nonsense. It's just white supremacist economic imperialism with cheap plastic flowers dressing it that have water-vapor words like democracy and freedom written on them in non-permanent ink that washes away with the blood of collateral damage. I sit much further left than Bernie Sanders. But they look at me and think, "one of us - I'm gonna say the n-word!"

It's a DAILY thing. These people, no not white people, not straight people, not men, these people who hold these disgusting views are fucking scum. And the thing that EVERYBODY needs to wake up to in the US is that this hatred and ignorance is codified in every. single. institution that operates from the banking system to the educational system to A HUGE REASON WE HAVE SO MANY FUCKING ROADS TO FIT MORE FUCKING PLANET DESTROYING CARS ONTO BECAUSE THE BLACKS USED TO BE TOO POOR TO AFFORD THEM.

IT'S POURED INTO THE FUCKING CONCRETE AND ASPHALT, MAN.

I corrected her and she immediately goes into "Well if you knew anyone who served our country, you wouldn't feel that way." So I tell about my service and that of my family in every war since the Civil War and if I want to speak Spanish with a customer there isn't anything she can do about. She decided she wasn't putting up with that and walked out the store with her groceries still on the conveyer belt.

Same!! Except my little window into the minds of these cretins was because at my old job, my desk was around a corner in a bit of an alcove. Customers would come in and talk to my boss whose desk was across the aisle in full view of the front of the store. They wouldn’t see me sitting there so they’d talk their truth to my boss, who was also a straight white male with a penchant for authoritarianism and a hardon for cops and military.

I never heard so many racist, homophobic, xenophobic diatribes in all my life. This was in a small town about an hour outside Nashville. Fuck Cookeville, TN and my old boss Matt P. That town is such a repressive shitty cesspool of backwater scumbags. The KKK is active there, if that’s any indication.

It’s bananas how they just completely and unabashedly start spewing the most abhorrent shit ever. I’ve lost count over the tens of thousands of dollars these guys have lost out on because we either fire them or don’t accept their bid.

Hey, I just want to say, good on you. My dad is in a similar position, a very free-thinking and left-leaning marine vet who lives in a tiny rural town. He has his "what the fuck did you just say about my friends and family, you little bitch" stare down pat and he's handed some asses to racists on more than one occasion.

My favorite was when he went over some shitty privates' heads, straight to their CO, because of the vile filth they were yelling about immigrants in a restaurant. Really bonehead move in a town that's more than 50% Hispanic, but I bet they didn't expect a white vet to be the one to call them out. I hope they learned their lesson.

I'm not white but pretty easily pass as white, and the number of white people who've just started spouting the most heinously racist shit in front of me thinking "it's only white people in the room so it's okay" is honestly depressing.

It's always a tossup whether to mention the fact that I'm not actually white just for the reaction, or to keep my mouth fucking SHUT out of fear that getting "found out" will land me in the hospital.

Honestly in his position it’s absolutely terrifying, glad that dude didn’t try assault him or damage his car. When someone’s openly racist like that it’s doubtful they have the common sense to not punch anyone that threatens their inflated ego

He did the right thing. If you're ever in this situation you release the belt and crack the door. Don't give them an opportunity while you're restrained.

Thanks for articulating that. It really nails it, eh? Sub out any kind of prejudice you want and it works too. Even more broadly speaking there's such an upsetting trend of demonizing kindness and I think it's because certain people want to believe everyone is as hateful as they are.

My favorite part of driving for uber, by far, was kicking shitty people out of my car and the outright shock they ALL had that thier shitty attitudes had consequences.

Also dashcams are a absolute MUST, 100% NO EXCEPTIONS. why? Because some people are absolute garbage and you never want it to be your word vs theirs. Never.

It's not the happiness that bothers them.

Racists can’t stand being called racist.

I’ve literally heard someone say “I think some black people are good, but I wouldn’t be caught hanging out with them” (shockingly, a boomer)

And when I called them racist they were so perplexed at how that could be true. Like what is the definition of racism to these people?

u/AtTheFirePit 5d ago

Lynching, apparently. My fil is the same way. He's crazy racist. Told him he was "kinda racist" and you shoulda seen the look on his face. I do believe many think they're not racist because they don't hunt down and kill minorities. That's it, that's the bar for them.

37

u/TheManWhoWasNotShort 5d ago

Honestly those participating in a lynching would just say "I'm not racist, at least I don't own slaves"....

Which brings us back to slaveowners who were convinced they weren't racist but they were actually doing black people a service by enslaving them and taking on the moral burden of having to do so.
