Woke up a 2 a.m got my writing done, and now watching this
3 hours and something of this podcast, so I watch 30 minutes here, stop it and see it later.
You have the podcast guy a Navy seal, with two black guys that one was a Seal and the other one
was in the U.S army rangers. It´s a good discussion about race relationships,
I can only tell you that my best friend and friend of my mother is a Marrocan.
And still today when I see him I just go off on the Marrocans and the Latin Kings idiots
that are very predominant in my small town. Not a good town to say the least. Today walking
with the groceries I encounter my friend the drug dealer, he from Ecuador I believe, he starts
telling me “come here, come here” but with a smile on his face. Me thinking, “Yes come here into
that street that nobody there is not even a bird overhead”, I did tell him to come to me, he insult me
saying I own this and that to him, I saw the opportunity being in front of a restaurant where all the
“normal” people were eating and drinking in the terraces, I just gave him one punch and down he went.
I was actually hoping for the police to come, is this criminal going to say… what?
I guess my ADD point is that is good to have those conversations about racism, yet don´t overload it
talking and talking about it constantly it does more harm than good. Also I do believe that is all
in each independent individual. For example my father was born after the Spanish Civil War and you
can understand there was no money. He had to survive how he could, and surviving as he could
did not include stealing, selling drugs, he just worked in all types of things and by his nature
he in an entrepreneur so always looking for something new to sell.
So racism… last time I checked
Obama was the president of the U.S. I might not agree with his policies, but something right he had
to do to having reach that job.
For me is simple, each individual is their own and they either will
make good decisions taking them to have a better life(economically e.t.c) or make bad decision
and take them to a bad life. I was given everything monetarely as a kid and I fucked up,
from job to job ended in the army and now a bad writer. Not my father, he was born poor and
now he is a succesful man.
Regardless of race, if you are a black person, or whatever colour you are if you can add value
to whatever job you have or simply add value to your own personal self which will inevitably lead for
job success, then you´ll do fine.
We do live, mostly in the Western world, and not all countries, but it is human nature that if you
can provide something to add value people will respect that and pay you whatever the colour of your skin is.
