239. My compassion doesn't extend that far either. In fact it pisses me off.
And the people who make excuses for it piss me off even more. Old, sick, insane, I don't care I think bigots can all go to hell. I've had my existence made miserable by too many of them growing up. I've heard the excuses, I've had people tell me I was imagining things when I knew damn well I wasn't. I've had white girls get away with bothering me on the school yard while I got in trouble for defending myself. I've learned that I have to defend myself by any means necessary at times because if you look for permission you won't get it. And still I try to take everyone as an individual but if someone turns out to be a bigot that's it I want NOTHING to do with them. They get the back of my hand and anything they have to say gets no merit.

Wrong? Perhaps as this country seems to think being the bigger person is to allow people to wrong you and get away with it. At least if you're in certain groups or classes, but I already know that those in power don't give a rat's ass about my black behind. So I'll do what I have to to protect myself and to hell with anyone who doesn't like it It's not like they're looking out for me anyway.
