Reflections on rudeness

More Featured Posts from blog readers:


Rudeness is in the eye of the beholder. I recently had the misfortune of getting stuck in traffic in front of one of the largest high schools in PA as they were dismissing class for the day. I was appalled at the rudeness of the students as they carelessly and arrogantly crossed the streets with no regard to their safety or the cars and drivers. As I was fuming, I realized that just a couple of days earlier I was in the exact same situation at Penn State University after a football game. The game was over and the crowd was leaving the stadium. I was laughing at the students as they carelessly and arrogantly crossed the streets with no regard to the cars and drivers. I thought the exact same behavior was all in good fun. I was rude to think those high school kids were being rude.

I tolerate a lot of rudeness. But if it's racist rudeness, I'm on the edge of confronting the offending person, even if it escalates into a fight. You see, minorities have been experiencing rudeness more than whites in this country. You don't get used to it. The more you experience rudeness, the more you hate it. In this in-your-face era, you're forced to get mean, or you get eaten.

My god... you are one of those racists, aren't you?

It doesn't matter how much one race or another experiences rudeness... what matters is that no matter who deals it out, they have to stop.

Just because I am white, you think I have it easy?

People are always seeming to say that you gotta see things from a black person's point of view... but I say that you have to look at a black person's point of view equally as much as you have to look at a white person's point of view.

And your comment about how whites don't experience it all that much, I think that you are being quite rude, insensitive... and I think you hate whites... but then again, it is alright to hate whites in this country... even white people can hate white people and not get lynched for it. But a white person can never hate anyone of any ethnicity different than their own.

I hate being white because it means that I cannot accuse a black person of being racist (if I do, they think I am being the racist), I cannot make jokes about black people but black people can make jokes about white people?

How is that equality?
