hey zoot

must. get. away. i hate being around old people. i know that sounds awful, but i don't think i'm make too big of a generalization. because all of their mindsets are so completely outdated, reminds me of that bob dylan song (listening to it right now actually, lol)...like i just can NOT stand my grandpa talking about the immigrants from mexico/asia in such a subtly (or not so subtle sometimes) xenophobic attitude...and i swear he's a racist. and i really do think almost all older people are racist in some way (not just white people, even). and for gods sake "coloreds" is NOT an appropriate term for black people anymore.

it just makes me sick.

yeah, a lot of old people seem to tend to be racist.. that's true! I guess it's because America was a lot different when they were kids and they're just not able to deal with the influx of immigrants over the last 15 years or so!

but it's such bullshit, they can't even stop and consider how their parents or granparents got here...like my grandpa is mostly german and irish, those 2 groups were blamed for bringing lots of crime and stuff in the 1850s, and the influx of immigrants as a percentage of the population was far greater back then. you could at least keep it in perspective!

and it's not only citing legitimate concerns about crime in hispanic ghettoes or something. he just makes comments about how there are so many mexicans when you go to the grocery store these days. or how awful it is to talk to a computer guy on the phone that has an indian accent. or how many "coloreds" in atlanta there are compared to where they live.



alright, deep breaths

all better

hey circa

i think i'll completely avoid the tv tomorrow. there will be specials on the 1 yr anniversary of the tsunami and i will be reminded of all the human suffering in the world. something i try to avoid at all costs.

don't worry zoot - you're not alone. I don't own one either
My niece, however, showed me her new video ipod today

Happy Hollydaze!
