When someone says the word racism what is the first thing that comes to mind Images of slavery segregation and The Ku Klux Klan ring all to true The Holocaust the extermination of the Native Americans and even the story of Christ remind us of 2000 years of the most despicable side of inhumanity What do all these events have in common I am blamed on a daily basis for all of them When I first started High School I was largely unaware of the racism that exists against white people Maybe I hadnt ever seen it before or maybe I was wrapped up in my innocence but after a week of High school I thought my name was White Boy Even now at least 10 times a day I hear Hey shut up white boy or Move gringo and if they find out Im Jewish its a barrage of Why did you have to kill Jesus or Why do you still complain about Holocaust or sometimes its simply an F-ing Jew kind of day There is a double standard however were I to use racial slurs I would be the one to get in trouble High school to some extent emulates society For example only a week after a debate in the United States Senate about Senator Ted Kennedys Hate Crime Bill a real hate crime actually took place in New York City but many senators along most Americans never heard about it The New York Times headline read Man Shoots Three in Rampage in East Village Hate is not mentioned because the culprit was a black manwho as the police said told investigators that he was bent on killing as many white people as he could Seemingly if a black man driven by hatred of white people commits murder its not really a hate crime The shooter shot three white people and held 40 or so patrons at the back of a restaurant
