I am so mad I am shaking

So,went to my local country club for an enjoyable Sunday morning of golf and got put in with a group of guys I had not seen there before.
All was fine for a few holes with just normal small talk about the start of football season when one of the guys suddenly says "did you see any of the convention last week,I can`t believe they think that n####r should be reelected".
One of the other guys laughed and said something about him being an affirmative action experiment.
The third guy just stood there looking stunned and I exploded saying how the fuck dare you use such racist words against our President!
I told them they ought to be ashamed and faux news inspired hatred like that had no place in our society.

They looked at me like I had two heads and said good luck with being a socialist but we are here to play golf.
I told them to go ahead,I would follow.

They went to the tee and hit while I hung back.
When it was his turn the third guy said "I will hang back and play with him (me)"
He told me after they had gone that he could not believe such racism still exists but guess it is what a repuke has to be.
He is now going to be voting for President Obama I believe!

2. Racists don't think they're racists.

It's amazing what they'll say when they believe they're in like company. What's more amazing is that they can't conceive of people existing who don't think as they do. They probably felt insulted that you called them racists.

109. Yes, I shock the hell out of them, too

I'm old and white and inherited money--not a huge amount, but certainly enough for any sane person--and I clean up pretty well.

If I go out cleaned up, someone invariably ASSumes I'm one of the entitled. While I try not to sandbag anyone, I do let them know their ASSumptions about too many things are seriously in error.

Well, unless they're being hideously racist. Then I just ask them what the fuck is the matter with them.

214. I have a biracial nephew.

He's in his twenties, and is my sister's son from her second marriage. While he was still in high school, she and her white husband (they have since divorced) moved here to IN to a jerkwater little town in the southern part of the state. Why they did that, I never really did figure out. Poor J. was used to living in much more tolerant WA. He looks white, and you would not believe the things that have been said in front of him.

Last edited Sun Sep 9, 2012, 04:08 PM - Edit history (1)

Maybe it's too late for that.

Report the names of those racists to the club. I think a letter to the editor of the largest paper in your area is in order, and use their names. Where do they work? Would their boss be interested in knowing that their employee is a racist?

You were right to call them on it, but if that is all that happens, they will rationalize that you are only one crazy SOB and continue on, as before.

Racism will continue on, until racists change their minds. Pain, shame and embarrassment are ways of helping the wrong-headed change their minds.

Don't apologize for being a Democrat! Don't let them make you feel bad for caring about how people are treated! March On! Hope On!

Democrats don't take away people's hopes and dreams. That may be all some people have left.

I love the way you took those a-holes down, and they asked for it. There are some lessons best learned the hard way. I am very proud of you.

24. I know several racists who absolutely know they are racists and think it is a good thing

to be so.

Most of us can be unconsciously ethoncentric at times and will strive to eliminate such when we are made aware of it. Racists are consciously so and defend their beliefs vehemently when called on them.

A girl we grew up with in the neighborhood uses the N word and it's shocking to here. Was on a jury and knew the Defendant was guilty of course - he was black.

10. Sounds like you think your country club is different from most.

I hope you're right but I am skeptical.. Those two racists probably represent what most other members believe, they were just less inhibited from saying so.

I used to think a yacht club I belonged to was different too. Unfortunately I was wrong, so I resigned during the Bush years.... I just could no longer enjoy spending time with a bunch of republicans.

11. I know how you feel...

I live in the south. Im a big white guy and have a very noticeable southern accent so I guess I come across as a redneck sometimes. Anyway, I guess I look like a southern Republican because Ive lost count of the number of people who strike up a political conversation with me assuming I must hate Obama like they do. Ive also lost count how many times the N-Bomb has been dropped in the process. So when I hear all these teabillies say their hatred of Obama has nothing to do with race, I know its bullshit.

182. So true about white southerners.

It never ceases to amaze me that white southerners will stand there in front of me and spew their hatred, thinking we all have the same opinion, since we're all "white". I think it shows just how ignorant they really are. I commend the guys that pushed back at their ignorance. Many country clubs are fortresses for white bigots.

208. I'm a big white guy from Philly, and this happens to me too.

I grew up in Philly, lived in TX for a few years, and have now in NC for the last 20 or so. As a result, I don't have much of a Phill accent. People can usually figure out that I'm from the North East, but not which part.

I'm a pretty generic looking white guy. Regularly people come up to me and say they think they know me. Or they know my brother. After we determine that they don't know me, I point out that if they go to the mall, they'll pass a guy who looks just like me about every 30 feet or so.

And on a number of occasions, in the right setting, white guys who don't know me will say either racist things, or sexist things, assuming that I'll agree, because I look the part.

This is also part of how I can tell when the GOP is using one of their more subtle dog whistles. And how when they feign ignorance about the racial tone of something they've said, I know its BS. They know exactly what they were doing.

Thank you for standing up for him! I was watching tv in a truck stop back a few months ago and a few idiots started saying things! I asked where they heard all the things that were talking about? Amazing how smart they were! They said that they heard it on those goofy old pharts(GOP) news outlets. I asked if they were nieve or just stupid? They got mad a left! The rest of us in the room started to laugh and finshed watching the race in peace and quiet!

59. and what's even better

Is that you and the other guy physically separated yourselves from them. In effect, you gracefully "dismissed" them by telling them to play ahead.

People may not think this will have an effect on such thoughtless people, but it will. It might not change behavior immediately, but the fact that others did not want to associate with them because of their racism says something.

18. actually, in these instances...

...it's not so much that people have those opinions that offends me the most.

It's that they are so presumptuous to assume that regardless of what company they are in, well of COURSE they can use those words, they are sure everybody feels that way. Why would anybody be offended??

ugh. that happened to me once, visiting my dad in east Texas, talking about Austin and how awesome it was, one of his friends asked in all earnestness "so tell me, is it over-run with n*****rs and sp**s like Houston and Dallas?"

i was so stunned i just sat there bug-eyed. the nerve.

You would think they would know better by now. Of course, a lot of them are "educated", but we have Southern colleges that are racist too. I won't name them. They know who they are; but, do not color all schools in the South with the same brush.

If you don't believe the story you can disagree in a way that doesn't belittle or otherwise instigate a flame war. Just because its in an anecdotal structure, doesn't mean the story isn't true - and you don't know for certain that it isn't.

We start at 7 usually and I'm never home before 1 or 2. Also, one can follow or "hang back" but if you're playing in a foursome the four of you will all be on the green at the same time. Most marshalls WILL NOT allow a foursome to become two twosomes after leaving the first tee unless it's a weekday and there isn't another foursome on your heels. Especially if you're playing at a "country club".

And, this person converted a white racist (albeit closeted probably) golfing repub who is now probably going to vote for President Obama to boot!

But even then that means a 7am tee-off at the very latest. To get a tee time like that on Sunday is next to impossible even on a "semi-public" country club course. If it's "semi-public", there are members who get first crack at those times. The other tell was the $35 dollar green fees on a Sunday at a country club. Where I live it's not possible to find anything less than about $60 on a Sunday, and that's on the municipal courses.

There are lots of posts about confrontational situations that just seem to raise my BS flag and this is one of them. Sorry of that offends.

43. i probably would have complained to management

and waited for them to come off the course for confrontation..

im sure that country club doesnt want rumors of allowing blatant racism on its course

thats just me tho... and i tend to push things a bit far, im told

ive found most businesses would rather have no association with anything controversial if they can help it... and are quick to remedy those types of issues..
every once and a while ull have a business owner (using a big franchise name) try to put up a political or religious statement on the businesses property they own...
unfortunately for them,they dont just represent themselves when they have a giant sign outside with a corporations name on it.

there are exceptions to this of course, like the recent chic-fi-la deal...
but in doing so, they accept any consequences that come with it..
and trust me, most places DONT WANT that kinda publicity.

i recently had to get CSX/AMTRAK to remove a set of ten commandments someone put up at a local train depot... took almost a month, and they attempted to blame each other a few times, but its definitely gone now.

about to do it to a local radio shack over a political sign infront of their building and on their lot actually... lol...

typically you just have to say things like 'im writing an editorial' and 'is this official stance of *insert name here* ?'

at any rate, you may have missed an opportunity to give the guys at the very least a scolding from management about proper behavior on their course

good job sticking up for your beliefs tho... most people dont when out numbered. takes courage.

IF I heard that kind of talk at a golf course, I would write a letter of complaint and follow it up with a phone call. That is how you stop them. When businesses know they will lose money because the racists who frequent their business, they will do something about it.

Frankly all these stories of what people said to racists and homophobes, especially since the star of them is usually the OP, even if true, do nothing to help deal with the problem, other than give someone a story to tell on the internet.

What is the name of the club btw? If it is frequented by racists naming it publicly is one way to force them to do something about it.

I think it's a VERY good idea to start attaching the two concepts. Start LAMINATING them together. We all should! Start adding some stink to that brand.

Destabilize the enemy.

AND YES, GOD YES!!!! COMPLAIN TO THE MANAGEMENT OF THAT COUNTRY CLUB!!!! They may be racists, too, or they may be the type that turns its head and looks the other way and puts the whole icky business on Benign Neglect Mode. They shouldn't be allowed to do that anymore! Having and/or uttering that kind of toxin should be WIDELY known and condemned. Would they, indeed, LIKE for rumors to start spreading that they're the Klan Kountry Klub (Hey! A brand new KKK!) or something? That there are racists there who use the N-word with no impunity? There should be a price to pay for that flagrant and disgusting behavior. Heaven forbid it starts costing them membership fees or something...

OUT IN THE OPEN WITH IT! COMPLAIN, libtodeath! COMPLAIN!!!

There should be pain and cost and unpleasantness to suffer in exchange for reprehensible behavior displays like that. HMMMM - does this club actually SANCTION that attitude or that behavior? Is that kind of attitude condoned here? Hmmm - I'll have to discuss this with my associates/partners/company/board of directors/sponsors...

because many people, even if they are offended, don't want to risk offending. i am black, and once a professor made a racist comment in class. i challenged the professor, and i had to deal with a lot of flack because i spoke up. after class, a few white students told me they were also offended by the comment, and you know what: that pissed me off more than the comment. i asked them: why in the hell didn't you support me? why did you just sit there and let me take all the heat? it's great that you support me NOW, but i could have used some help when it happened. it wasn't just my duty to say something: it was your duty too.

thank you for speaking up.

88. you described how I feel when I say nothing...

When my family and friends make racist comments or jokes I do call them racists because I don't want to offend them. In the case of jokes I don't want to be seen as the guy who can't take a joke.

Instead of calling them racists I challenge their "facts"; for example I remind them that most food stamp participants are white.

Some of my family says racist shit to bug me.

117. i know what you mean

it took me many years to find the courage to confront people, but i realized i felt so much worse when i didn't. now my feeling is this: if you have the temerity to say racist shit, then you should be able to take whatever comes your way. it's tricky, because sometimes people gang up on you and claim you have no sense of humor, or you're too sensitive, or you took it the wrong way...blah, blah, blah.
but like i said: if you have the gonads to make the comment, you should be man/woman enough to deal with consequences of what comes out of your stupid mouth. kudos to you for at least making an effort

I had long hair and a mustache back then, and my skin is on the darker side, especially in the summer.

The funny thing is, I'm of Italian descent, as was the cop. When he saw my ID I'm sure he felt like an idiot.

72. No offense intended, but it's been my experience that most golf people are racist repukes.

 

I've played golf and enjoy it, but mostly at places like a KOA campground. We take our time. The few times I've agreed to go to a "country club", everything was rushed and it seemed the only issue was not holding up the group behind us - which means not getting time to putt and that's the only thing I really enjoy about it.

The clubhouse bars are always the same - expensive drinks and all right wing bullshit banter. I prefer hanging out with regular people, the kind that don't wear branded polo shirts all year-round.

I'm glad you took a stand against those assholes. I'd have been tempted to deck them both. What the fuck is wrong with those people?

73. Sometimes people think mad= hate.

It doesn't. albeit using racial epitaph is better than repeating what they said. Dog knows that walk and spelling out w.a.l.k. is the same word. just longer.

Think Kirk set that one up on the last TOS movie. If things were go to forward, they have to get passed people like them. Which is where it went from being where no man has gone before to no one has gone before. Good to know 2 idiots managed to change someones mind. Gotta love people like that in the end. They'll lose if they keep putting that pure obvious 100 % racist thing out there. They have the argument if you argue against Obama you must be racist but you use a racial epitaph like that. Kinda make it obvious for those who are simply voting republican because they have always voted republican and they aren't racist and that comes out and someones real morals get in the way.

Bush didn't particularly give a shit how america looked to everyone else thus we lost that WWII respect people had about us. Obama saying sorry for our error in torturing people was for the good of the country, i can't imagine Ann Romney getting kids out during an olympics game. Russia and Iran really want Mitt in there so we fall for a trap. If Israel doesn't fall in first. Sure we had to have a Ron Paul moment. (God was okay but the Jerusalem part was off... thats not the capital. and Burma is a country.. Nuff said. But hope there's more idiots like the above. We'll win Almost Reagan style that way.

told them in a heated voice that I was Chinese, black, Jewish and Polish and unless they wanted trouble they had better stop it.

Of course I was small and white and everyone knew my family, but it stopped them and I never heard that stuff from them again.

I have always spoke up against this bullying junk. It hurts me to the core. I am all races, all sexes and I respect all harmless creeds. It is in my blood to fight against belittling others for a laugh or a superior attitude.

106. I continue to be inspired! This is what the nation needs. Personal involvement.

After being on the internet for longer than I can believe, I've know of one or two websites that control how participants behave. They do so by applying direct pressure when and where it's needed. It takes skill and bravery. But I've watched it over and over. And to my amazement, these sites continue to be civil, amongst a sea of incivility on the net.

The same applies to a country, I believe. Americans are almost prodded and goaded into being ignorant. I believe commercial interests are partly to blame. But it's also politics. Basically it boils down to money. An ignorant and uncivilized portion of our society is skating by without being called to defend their pathetic behavior.

There are a few on this forum who have been posting about there encounters lately. I even had a dream I was going to send them personal messages, thanking them. I'm inspired every time I see someone who is brave enough and bright enough to stand up and speak like a civilized being.

Good for you. You're an inspiration for all.

111. Sure you did ...

sorry, not buying it.

I know that there is a lot of racism out there - most recently evidenced by the Treyvon Martin murder - but I don't believe this story. Most of the educated republicans I am around (and there are plenty - I live in Texas) would not dare say something like that. The more common theme is that Obama is a community organizer who has never had a job. Which is silly because he was a summer associate at the same type of law firm their own kids would work at, and he did work as a lawyer/professor after law school along with being in the Illinois Senate and the House. His path really wasn't all that different from Bill Clinton's - except Clinton became Governor instead of a rep. But they are very careful about what they say and I'd be very surprised to hear something like this. Among the teabaggers it is a different story - but that is largely a lower income level.

What absolutely amazes me is the following:

(1) The United States is STILL in a world of hurt. President Clinton nailed it: it will take several four-year term with the smartest people in the room working to heal the damage wrought by cheney*/bush*.

(2) Given all we know, President Obama is definitely one of the smartest people in the room, surpassing, IMHO both Rmoney and Ryan.

(3) Racist tones openly permeate many conversations about this election, and race is one of the justifications for a Rmoney presidency.

at local country clubs, where the top 1000 rich white people in a community of 50,000 can pay over $2000 a year for the privilege of spending a weekend carting themselves around in a golf cart to swing at a ball.

That's the top 2 % earners or inheritors who think being rich and white is something they accomplished all by themselves, and they don't have a clue about most real issues in America, they are removed and insulated from it by their wealth and privilege.

I said "You probably have no idea what a socialist is, but either way
you're an ignorant bigot for saying those things. You can disagree
with our president but you can't slander him in my presence!"

Another customer was standing there just bringing in his car for some
service and he turned to me and said "Thank you for putting that
jackass in his place, I'll be taking my car elsewhere and even though
I've always been a Republican, you've convinced
me to vote for Mr. Obama!"

I said "Good for you" and told the service manager "I will never come
back to this place and I will be telling the owners why!" He lowered
his eyes, turned around and shuffled away knowing he was suitably
chastised.

229. It's a 50/50 chance of it being True or False. I picked True

I got no reason to suspect the story so I treated it as True.
If the poster is just trying to play one-ups, well it's a good story that'll hopefully inspire others to do the same.

These kinds of things DO go on. Some people DO take a stand when it's not socially beneficial.
That's where all the changes have come from.
People protesting the status quo for one reason or another.
Somebody stood up against slavery, stood for women's rights, stood up for the right for gays to marry.

The ones who don't always outnumber the ones who do at first, but the ones who do actually exist.
I take the poster's story at face value.

233. 50/50 chance I said. I know it's the internet but I can't be SO suspicious about everything

It's the internet I know but when it comes to personal accounts either they're TRUE or they're FALSE.
I would rather not be so automatically suspicious of people telling their personal accounts.
If that's the case why read anything?
I have no way surefire way of knowing whether what some anonymous person on the internet talks about is true or not.
So should I automatically discredit every personal account I read & say "You're lying"?

Unlike organized media which have political & financial reasons for lying, regular people only lie to impress or conceal.
Maybe some people write these stories to impress but unless I have significant cause to suspect the story I'll take it at face value.
If it's false, so what? It's a good story that may inspire people to follow in the storyteller's footsteps.
With organized media I have more cause to suspect what I read.

Can't live in a world without trust, spayneuter.
You can easily go through the world mindlessly distrusting everything you see & hear.
But that makes you paranoid.

Trusting is gambling & I played those 50/50 odds & took your story & the original poster's story at face value.
If false, what did I really lose? A few minutes of reading time, big deal.

Thousands of people in person cheer him on ...even in Augusta, the buckle of the 'racist' belt (where he won the Green Jacket FOUR TIMES) and millions all over the world do too. If your experience is true, you won't have any problem identifying the "country club", right?.

189. Older white men are prejudice

I believe that is true. I grew up in the 50's and every other word
that came out of my father's mouth was an ethnic slur. Prejudice
was the norm and it could not help affecting me. I admit that some
still lingers and I am ashamed of it. I try hard to make sure that
it does not influence my thinking. I have been in company of many
of my peers and some do not hold back. I believe that anyone can
see this in the Republicans. Look at their convention and then compare
it with the Democrats. Their arguments against The President are
racially slanted. I sincerely hope that this election is so lopsided that
it will wake up the Republican party, but sadly I do not think so.

Good on you, lib. We have to speak up as you did each and every time somebody says something so outrageous and ignorant like that.

It took me some time, but I eventually trained a dear friend to stop using the "n" word. I told him other people he may say it in front of will not always call him on it, but that they most likely in the 21st Century would not appreciate it. Also said it's not funny and reflects badly on HIM. I've not heard him say it in a long time, but if he ever slips, I'll remind him it offends me.

204. Question one: how much did the shaking effect your golf game?

I imagine you couldn't have played too well, with all of that shaking and all.

Question two: after shaking for hours, don't you think you should go see a doctor?

Question three: if the shaking isn't/wasn't really so bad, how upset and physically disturbed would you have to be to give up $35 and a game of golf?

Enquiring minds want to know!

205. Just the words "country club" bring up racist leanings to me, but coded in aristocratic, educated

language rather than dropping "f-bombs" and "n-bombs" every other word.

I expect nothing else. I was a guest of a buddy at his country club in NW Tucson once and when they found out I was Jewish, pretty told me to leave and never come back because "Jews aren't welcome here."

Cost me a friendship because I told the guy to choose between neanderthals or a buddy of 10 years. He chose his country club, I chose to throw him out of my house.

for speaking up. I think conservatives seem to think EVERYONE thinks like they do. They listen to Limbaugh for so long they're completely brainwashed and are shocked when they run into someone who isn't. Plus, they think ALL white people are going to join ranks and vote for Romney. Newsflash - all white aren't that stupid.

Republicans have become their own worst enemies and haven't even realized it. The hatred and ugliness they have demonstrated over the years has been disgusting. Thank you for speaking up and shooting down at least one of these brain dead fools.

228. The fact that the third guy looked stunned is good news in several ways.

Not only did he disagree with what was being, but he will go back and rip what was being said apart in front of his family and friends. His reaction implies that he has not seen such racism among his closest associates and family. So, the pro Obama vote could be multiplied.
