Here in Columbus, Ohio there is like a Mad influx of Mexicans. Somalians. Ethiopians Africans from everywhere. Everybody's here! -And this has to be the number one capital for interacial couples. But the home of a lot of Ignorant white people and Bigots. I grew up in a small town in Georgia where you only fooled with white people at the grocery stores, doctor offices, maybe if a Mormon came and knocked on your door or Some white man selling Insurance? The military was a culture shock for me because I had to live, work and became close to a lot of people of many races. But being here in OHIO is the ultimate "culture shock"! Everyday I got to hear and see some white person with a black girl or boyfriend or husband or wife talking about how Mexicans are taking over! or How all these Somalians know how to do is come here and have all kinds of babies and take all the Food Stamps! or how it's ashame that 10 Mexicans rent one apartment and share one car! It makes me so, sick! The Somalian women hear where the head wrap. I sometimes will sport a head scarf tied in a bun in the back. So one day I go into the DMV this white lady behind the counter is being NASTY and asks, "What Country are you from?" I give her the "SIstagul look with the attitude" go, Georgia! Then she's looking all crazy and stupid! Another day I'm signing my son up for all day kindergarten out of district. Waiting in a long line in which this Somalian Couple who just wants to ask a question goes up to the front of the line -When a woman behind me goes, "these Africans come to this country and TAKE OVER!, We can't even put our kids in some of these schools cause they taking all the spots!" I look back and it's a white women with about five mixed race kids! that she don' had with some BLACK MAN WHO IS A LONG DESCENDANT OF AN AFRICAN! -So that ticked me off right there! My in laws (white and mixed race: embracing black or acting like they black) are the epitome of this Ignorance and Bigotry toward the other races. My mother in law especially. She even always goes, "These Foreigners Taking Over! They shouldn't be allowed to Come to America!" I be wanting to say, "We are all foreigners from foreign lands in a sense, if you look at it! If anybody came here and took over it was your race, the white man!" -But I hold my tongue.(respect for elders) She is sick from a Blood Transfusion. I always think to myself (Ignorant behind! probably sick from the blood of a Mexican or One of these Africans you always talking ignorantly about!) -Just something I had to get off my chest! I'm glad the Mexican is here. When I eat fruit and vegetables? I know that some of it was picked by his hand. They do the jobs most of these races- especially white people won't. I'm glad to see Africans from wherever adjust and get in where they fit in? For this country does not belong to the white man and somebody forgot to get on the loud speaker here in Ohio and tell these white people that. They want to talk about Mexicans and Somalians and all ,coming here to live and be loud about that! -While silently white folks are coming to live in this country in the same way form these foreign countries too! But you don't hear talk of that! It just pisses me off sometimes that "AIN'T NOTHING CHANGED"
