Brief conversation with idiot-hick on the topic of Palestine/Palestinians
(The following took place somewhere in Upstate New York in March 2011)
Not Moi:“What’s that button mean?” (pointing at Palestinian flag button on my jacket)
Moi:“It’s the Palestinian flag.”
Not Moi:“What’s that?”
Moi:“Palestinians…The people of Palestine.I wear it to show my support for the Palestinian people.”
Not Moi:“You mean towelheads?You don’t mean towelheadsdo you?”
Moi: (whilst patting with my left hand on his shoulder sarcastically) “Don’t say that man.It makes you sound really ignorant.Really.”
Not Moi:“Well they do wear towels on their heads.All of em’, no?”
Moi:(pausing first) “Are you serious?Just stop man.Just stop.”
Not Moi:“Ok, not towelheads.But you’re talking about those darker people right?Those people all have darker skin.”
*And while trying to contain myself, clenching both my fists, waiting for the context to change so I could physically remove myself from the presence of this ignorant fucking buffoon, I glanced but for only a moment down at his hands that were held at his sides---only for a quick moment.Yup.Just as I had suspected.NO THUMBS.
