I was sitting in dispatch, dispatching calls when my supervisor walked through the door & asks, “Do you know what kind of neighborhood has three fried chicken places on one corner*?”
I ignored him hoping he’d go away, I have heard enough grandpa jokes to know that this was one of those racist observations that is supposed to be a joke, but is not really a joke.
He blurted out “a Churches, a Popeye’s, & a Kentucky Fried Chicken!”
I said to him, “I don’t even want to know!”
He said, “It was like a fucking Snoop Dog video!”
He then went on about his latest adventure at Larry’s Villa, he explained that it used to be much better when it was just a place for white trash strippers, he was disgusted because now it was a place for, “big black bootie women!”
My supervisor added, “There were a bunch of black drug dealers watching them!”
I asked him how he knew they were drug dealers, before he could answer I told him, “Shut the fuck up!”
He laughed! Sensing I wasn’t offended enough for his liking, he launched into a rant about how he hopes they** hurry up & build an electric fence on the border, “so we can keep those tax evaders out, because they are sucking up all of our resources!”
I tried to argue his point with my progressive “bullshit”, but he cut me off with an argument to end all arguments, he said, “I know this is true because my mom told me so”
Yup, this coming from a guy in his 30’s… you’d think he’d learn to think for himself! I love my mom but I take the bullshit she tells me with a grain of salt and a barf bag. I went back to drawing & dispatching calls. My supervisor walked out of the dispatch room satisfied that he offended someone he believed to be a democrat***. I don’t know if this guy even believes this bullshit or if he says it to piss me off.
*for the record there isn’t three fried chicken places on one corner, there is only one on the corner he is talking about (Vegas Valley DR @ Nellis BLVD)… the Churches is a couple miles south of the Popeye’s & the KFC is a couple of miles north, his racism has clouded his perception, but even if there was three, what would it fucking matter? When I ate meat I thought fried chicken was delicious & would have appreciated the selection of places to choose from.
**they being the Federal Government, the same Federal Government he claims to hate!
***for fucks sake, I am not a Democrat!
