racism still lives on

Location

a night out with an incredible female friend

an enjoyment full of laughter

as we were waiting for waiter to provide service

a waiter said hello to two gentlemen that were gay

he acknowledge the two women that sat behind the two guys

on my left were two black women, he said hello

when he approached our table, looked at me with disgust

as if i wasn't one of them

he is right, i'm one of y'all

i'm a proud heterosexual man

but that besides the point

its about human decency

ironically, if a straight man were to ostracize a gay couple

he's a bigot

if a gay man were to ostracize a straight man

it's justify

no see, that's not the way life

you respect me, i respect you

you don't respect, i don't respect you at all PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!

you are no better than anyone else

if you continue to add more defintions to the word racism that is beyond layers of a dictionary page

it clearly states in the declaration of independence

all men are created equal

what makes you different?

that you are gay and i'm not

hot garbage-at the end of the day, we are men

we are all one, learn to like it and live with it

remind yourself if it was the other way around, it would be an outrage

do onto others what you don't want done to you

remember that
