And then... this happened:
"You're lucky some black girl didn't kick your ass for reading that."
"Wow. It was just a joke, but way to turn it into both homophobia and racism."
"I was just joking too."
"Yeah, but your joke was homophobic and racist."
"Well you were the one who told me that black people are more homophobic than white people."
"Um, when exactly did I tell you that?"
"You told me about how that marriage bill in California passed because all the black people voted for it."
"You mean how racists blamed blacks for passing Prop 8, but it wasn't actually true? Great to know you were listening so well."
"Well... still there are a lot of homophobic people out there."
"Yeah, there are, and a lot of them are white. Also, you can be against homosexuality without feeling the need to beat gay people up. Unless of course you're suggesting that a black homophobe would be more likely to beat us up than a white homophobe because of the racist belief that black people are inherently more violent. You're not suggesting that are you?"
"No... I wasn't... I was just... Oh forget it."
I swear, sometimes it feels like I have to do this every day.
