Truth is Stranger than Fiction

Phillip Capshaw provides his own unique perspective on everything from local to world events and, as the blog title suggests, believes that nothing is funnier than observing the comical nature of our fellow man and especially Southern Oklahomans. Phillip is a native of Ardmore, Oklahoma, with varied interests who likes to poke fun at almost any group and occupation, but feels as if there is much to make fun of in passing the mirror everyday.

I just love it when someone makes a racist post on social media about some group and the supposed advantage that said group has over Caucasians. Yes, I do understand, by the way, that the illegals in this country are taking all of the great minimum wage jobs away from us white folks. I recently read such a post. It was hard for me not to ask when the next Klan meeting was, but I refrained. See, some things do mellow with age. In my opinion, the joke posted was very demeaning to a couple of different races. It had deliberate misspellings from the viewpoint of a minority. 

 

I wasn’t being sarcastic when I said I love it, because inevitably the fellow racists have to chime in and “Like” the status or add their logs to the fire. That is where things get really interesting. In the disparaging remarks about other races or religions and the ignorance of such groups, the author’s lack of intelligence starts shining through. My advice to you, my racists friends, is to keep quiet so that you don’t appear “more stupider” than the people you are making fun of. Your grammar and spelling is atrocious. I do realize that I have my share of mistakes on this blog on a weekly basis. That is just one of the many reasons that I am not going to make fun of people that didn’t grow up learning “American” like I did.  I will end today with a quote I read recently that could be directed towards me or my prejudiced friends.

 

“Blessed is the man who, having nothing to say, abstains from giving us wordy evidence of the fact.”- George Eliot, “Impressions of Theophrastus Such”
