"I Feel Like I'm Fucking Black!"

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, Jul 24, 2013 at 10:09 AM

While making my way to the Rose Gardens last week in Portland (it was my first time, I'm visiting from louisiana) I was waiting for people to load on a bus when I heard an argument between the driver and a kid (20-25) with a skateboard. He refused entry knowing this kid, saying that the way he gets off at the top of the hill and skates down is dangerous, and it was for everyones safety. Seemed reasonable. The kid proceeded to argue, then as he walked off the bus he screamed, "I feel like I'm fucking BLACK!" This was a mere few days after the Zimmerman verdict and he clearly thought he was making the bus driver look like a dick but he didnt. What he did was seem like a white-privileged PNW asshole. I'm beyond disappointed. Never would I think in a million years I'd experience such blunt, loud, obvious racism and anger in Portland. Where's the liberal oasis everyone brags about? I haven't seen it yet.
