Default Segregation/Racism down in the south

Well, as some people may know, i was away for a couple of weeks because i went down to South Carolina with a couple of friends.
I tell you, we had a WONDERFUL time. The beach was beautiful, the food was great, the water was warm and the weather was great.
But one thing i noticed was that there were NO black people anywhere.
So me and my friend were sitting in a restaurant when a couple with their kids walked in.
EVERYBODY's heads turned; the man was black while the lady was white. They had black kids.
Now mind you, i have NO problem with that. NO problem at all but as they walked in, something disturbing started to take place.
People were glaring at them, people were muttering under their breath.
I was getting pissed because this nice family came to have a good lunch and they had to be racialy discriminated.
This Red-Neck racist walked up to them, pushed the man a bit and told him to: "Git. We don't need yo' kind here".
The Man protested, despite the lady wanted to leave in fear of her children getting hurt.
All of a sudden, the red-neck SHOVED the man onto a table screaming that people like them shouldn't be allowed in this state.
The kids were crying, the lady was crying and the man was cut from falling on a glass. I got up and started to yell at the red-neck and told him the only people who shouldn't be welcomed in this restaurant are dumb racists like him.
"Whatever" he said and walked outside with his other friends.
My friend and I helped the man up and took the family outside.
They were a really nice family and they did not deserve one minute of what they went through.
I want to know if any other users of the WE Forums have experience this before.


BTW, other than that, i had a great time.

First of all, if you didn’t see any black people in South Carolina, either you were not paying attention or you were in the rich neighborhoods the whole time. Yes I have been through shit like that before. I’m black my girlfriend is white and her parents hate me? She says it’s because of age (I’m 18 and she is 16) but something tells me there is more to the story, I think there racist, now it’s a well knows fact that most people fear what they do not understand, And until we figure out why people have different skin colors there will always be, some one out there discriminating

I could've told you that there would've been a ton of racism. Thats just the way we do things in the South, its sad, I know.. But, you have to deal with it. I've seen shit happen almost every time I go out to the store, or whatever.

Well, think of it this way; Who were the confederates against in the Civil War? The blacks. So, some of the older, more traditional Southerners believe that they should continue to be racists.

actually the south were fighting the north to keep the rite, to have slaves (the blacks) they were not fighting the blacks in the civil war. ironically many slaves fought for the confederate side during the war because they were forced to.

I know. I was expecting something of the sort but never a father being hurt in public infront of his kids and wife.

I applaud you for helping that man. I never went through anything like that unfortunate man did, but predjudice comes in all forms. A few years back, I went into a clothing store. At that time, at the age of 48, I had hair half way down my back and earings in both years and dressed like a hippie. I was in line waiting to pay for a shirt. The clerk was nice to the customer ahead of me. But when this clerk took care of me, she treated me like crap, putting my shirt into a bag and throwing it on the counter. Later I went to a credit union to withdraw some money. When I got up to the counter the teller asked me for some id. There had been times in the past when I was never asked for id and I knew if I was in a suit and tie, she would have never asked me for my id.

If it sounds like I'm complaining, I'm not. The point I'm trying to make is that the only reason I was treated like that is because of the way I was dressed. I tend to look at these two situations in different ways. Because the way I was treated at the clothing store, I just won't shop there anymore. As for the credit union, the way I look at it is they were just protecting my money for asking for id.

I'm not trying to compare what happened to me to that unfortunate gentleman. I just wanted to say that predjudice comes in all forms of life and it's unfortunate it does.

Actually, that's incorrect. The South was fighting to keep their rights as states. The constitution said that any state could leave the union at anytime, which they did, but the republicans were being bitchs about it and wanted to keep power of everybody and everything and the civil war happened, and then Lincoln made it about slavery, which is actually what the civil war wasn't about it. It was about power.

Right on, bro. It's easy to dissaprove of racism when it is the popular opinion, but to stand up against it in an enviroment where your opinion is the minority takes a true man.

I myself have been victim to racism, a little less extreme than this case. When I was about 11 years old, a truck full of skinheads chased me through my neighborhood (which was a bad one) and was throwing bottles at me, threatening to kill me. I was lucky enough to make it to the front steps of the local rec center where they refused to persue me. I am chicano by the way. It is sad that the world is still plagued by racism, by every race.
