I’ve found that anytime I’ve been heckled or called something (today it was “fag” from a passing car, which… seriously, that’s all you could think up? Hell, I’d be more upset if you got my name wrong.) it has always been cases of two guys in a car. And they’re always white. The age range isn’t a factor here, because face it, most of us are still adolescents in our minds at one point in time or another. But seriously. And I’ve mentioned this before. It’s always white guys who talk the most shit, and they always do it from the safety of a vehicle.
Because they’re scared, I would presume. They’re scared that they’re about to be called out on their shit. I’ve been given nothing but compliments from everyone other type of person imaginable, but it’s always white guys that try and say things to belittle me.
Maybe it’s because I’m a white guy myself, and I’ve broken some rule somewhere. Maybe it’s because I’ve done something they couldn’t bring themselves to do, so I must be different.
Maybe it’s because they’re jealous. Or afraid. Or both. Could be both.
But like I said, there’s always more than one guy in the vehicle, so apparently douchebag-ness needs company in order to be amplified.
I think I might turn this into a research opportunity. A social experiment. But I’ll have to go back and write down every event in greater detail. But it could be very enlightening.
