Well, shit. I went home to see some family that I hadn’t seen in a while, like probably 3-5 years, maybe more. It was nice to see them until one of them said, “Oh, what did you vote for Obama?!” Then I realized why I hadn’t made more of an effort in the last several years to connect.
Then he went on to say, “I always make sure to vote for the right (or white, I can’t remember exactly which he said) candidate.” Seconds later stupid was just dripping from his mouth about the birthers being right and his birth certificate and “Obama’s not even an American!”
I used to get all agitated about comments like these and fight back (with words), but people with those uneducated opinions aren’t even worth the breath. I just removed myself out of the pathway of his asinine, ignorant bullshit.
We may be family, but it doesn’t mean that I have to put up with ignorance.
