A message to bigots
At the bus stop this evening, an elderly man got talking to me. He was talking about the lottery, and asked what on earth anyone would do with £100m. I said I could find plenty to do with it, starting with an overnight homeless shelter here in Sheffield. Apparently, this was enough to kick off a tirade about how all jobseekers and homeless people are lazy, and should just take the jobs off the ‘coloureds’ because they’re ‘not our people’.
FOR FUCKS SAKE, WE ARE ALL ‘OUR PEOPLE’!
I spluttered something at him as we got on the bus, but just have to get this out of my system.
We are all ‘our people’. The only ‘them and us’ that matters is between the people fucking us over and those of us getting fucked. And it’s people like the twat on the bus who leave us in this mess by letting themselves be conned into thinking that the person next door is their enemy. They’re not. They’re up to their neck in the same shit that you are and just doing whatever they can to avoid the next hammer blow. Half the country is walking around with the sword of fucking Damocles dangling over their head, we’ve 3 MILLION people unemployed and a government that seems to have never got beyond primary school economics and ‘divide and rule for beginners’, and you’re worried because a brown person has a job?!
GET A FUCKING GRIP. YOU ARE MAKING THINGS WORSE. HELP OUT YOUR FELLOW HUMAN BEING OR FUCK THE FUCK OFF, WHATEVER YOU THINK YOUR ACCIDENTAL SKIN COLOUR ENTITLES YOU TO.
Normal service will be resumed post-fag.
