When I came across this story, the truth is, I hesitated to share it. I just didn’t think it was necessary to speak about racism in our day and age. For me those issues have long been put to rest, and anyone still racist out there needs a serious reality check. I’m happy that the world has at least evolved in that way, and that it seems that more and more, people are more knowledgeable and less ignorant about people from other ethnicities or religions.
Unfortunately however, this isn’t the case for everyone. Although I dislike admitting it, I know there are still people out there who hide hatred and intolerance inside.
Here’s a story for anyone out there who may fit into that category. For everyone else, it’s worth a great chuckle. Enjoy!
“A racist walks into a crowded bar. He looks around and sees a black man sitting in a corner.
The racist walks up to the bar, turns around and announces, “I’m going to buy everyone in this bar a free drink, except for that black guy over there!” Everybody is clapping and cheering for the racist and when he buys the last pint, the black man turns around, puts his thumb up and says, “Thanks mate!”
The racist is slightly puzzled by his reaction but doesn’t pay too much attention to it.
The next night, the racist goes into the same bar and again, there is a black guy sitting in the corner, so the man, again, goes to the bar, turns around and says, “I’m going to buy everyone here a free drink, except for that black guy over there!” The patrons are all ecstatic and are hugging and cheering the racist for his generosity.
When he buys the last pint, the black guy turns around, puts his thumb up and says, “Thanks mate!”
The racist scratches his head and asks the barman, “Why is that black guy thanking me when he’s the only person I’m not buying drinks for?”
“Well,” the barman responds, “he owns this place.”
