|I am a 45 yr old white Air Force Veteran and I can very sadly state that racist is still alive and well in AMERICA. Memorial Day weekend 2006 I was working at a retirement facility in Easley,South Carolina. My black supervisor stated to me" You cant trust a person who has ever been in the military". Seeing that this was a blatant attempt to anger me I walked away. A few minutes later the same supervisor stated to me" You cant trust a white person"Again seeing this as a racist attempt to anger me I walked away. I did report the issue to management and was told to ignore the comments. The supervisor was not fired. In fact he remained as supervisor for over two months until he resigned for other reasons.
Had I made similar racist and bigotted comments to a black person I would have been fired on the spot. Yet in this church owned retirement facility a black supervisor is free to make racist statements.
Until such racism is eliminated the DREAM of Dr King will never become a reality.
