Racism

The following was sent to me by a YO-YO reader. He was born in Costa Rica but chose to live these past 44 years in the United States (Texas). Judging from his travels, he probably knows the U.S.A better than I do!

Everyone is in a hurry to scream 'Racism' these days!

A man walks up and asks a clerk, 'In what aisle could I find the Polish sausage?'

The clerk looks at him and says, 'Are you Polish?'

The guy (clearly offended) says, 'Well, yes I am. But let me ask you something. If I had asked for Italian sausage would you ask me if I was Italian? Or if I had asked for German bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German? Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was Jewish? Or if I had asked for a Taco would you ask if I was Mexican? Would you? Would you?'

The clerk says, 'Well, no!'

'If I asked for some Irish whiskey, would you ask if I was Irish?'

'Well, I probably wouldn't!'

With deep self-righteous indignation, the guy says, 'Well then, why did you ask me if I'm Polish because I asked for Polish sausage?'

The clerk replies, 'Because you are in Home Depot'

Just thought I'd lighten up the topic of my next post on the Rebel flag.
Just so you know, the Rebel flag has NOTHING to do with racism (for me).

BTW - Today is my sister's birthday.....
HAPPY BIRTHDAY LEAH!!
Now there's a rebel girl for ya!! Yee-ha!! It's Friday AND her birthday,
you cowboys better watch out down there in S.W. Florida!

seems like a happy blog, and well meaning- but if anyone thinks the civil war was not about slavery, they need to do some reading.as far as "heritage and culture"--watch the movie "O Brother where art thou" for a definition.The rebels tried to destroy the USA. They have since reformed and are great citizens and patriots, but the history is history.

Maybe somebody should lighten up a bit.
