“I’m black, I know what this is about.”

March 6th, 2007

That’s what a woman who allegedly assaulted another driver in a Target parking lot in Wauwatosa, cialis canada pills Wisconsin told police after she was confronted about her actions.

I’m sorry, viagra canada but the color of her skin was NOT what “this” was about.

She wasn’t being hassled for being black. She was being questioned because she reached in through an open car window and choked another human being over a parking spot.

Every time someone like this plays the race card to excuse their unacceptable behavior, they diminish the plight of people who really are being treated unfairly because of the color of their skin.

    There’s a term for this – and a children’s story about this… Crying Wolf.

    Unfortunately, this kind of bad behavior followed by the playing of the race card takes away from the authenticity of those that actually are the victim of racism.

    Remember how people dismissed (and still do too often) women who say they’ve been raped?

    But, I guess these people don’t care anyway. They’re too busy passing the blame someone else for their bad behavior.
