Correct Social Etiquette When Meeting People Of Color

For many years now, a British company called Debrett’s has produced a book guide to table manners, dress code and social etiquette. This guide has prevented many a faux pas and ensured the smooth denouement of business meetings, formal dinners and other potentially hazardous social gatherings. It’s a guide which is very much still referred to in diplomatic circles.

In the unenlightened old days, it was critical to know how to speak to the landed gentry, such as a prince, duke, king, or even a member of the clergy. Get it wrong and the consequences were disastrous. Addressing a bishop as ‘padré’ rather than ‘your excellency’ was simply inexcusable, exposing the miscreant to a real risk of being ostracized or possibly excommunicated.

Times move on, however, and if we address bishops at all it is in screaming foul-mouthed abuse at them from behind a banner at an LGBT rally. In such circumstances, politeness is out of the question and these days we prefer to ‘bash the bishop’. Furthermore, since people are generally ‘spiritual’ rather than ‘religious’ and have their own truths which are true to them, excommunication is no threat at all.

Despite the progress we have made, social etiquette continues to be just as relevant as in the past, even if the context has shifted. Speaking to friends and family is always easy, but it can lull us into a false sense of security. Life becomes much more difficult when we encounter a person of color.

If we are also pigment-enhanced, there is no problem. A polite ‘it’s all good bro’ is all that is required in passing. If, however, we are hideously white and need to check our privilege, just how should we act? It is in such circumstances that we find Debrett’s and other etiquette guides to be wholly deficient since they offer no guidance at all.

In all likelihood, we will freeze in such circumstances, acutely aware of historic oppression committed against the person in front of us but utterly clueless as to how to act. This is the ‘fight or flight’ instinct in all of us. Neither fight nor flight are especially polite when a person of color is extending his hand to shake, showing his shiny white teeth in a welcoming smile. We therefore must turn to common sense as our guide. Here is what we recommend:

  • Remember that your counterpart of color is always and everywhere a victim and that you are the oppressor. However much you may be tempted to view the POC as just another human being, we progressives are above this. Even if he/she is a high powered professional in a bank/law firm etc., it is certain that their ancestors picked cotton for a slave owner. Pay reparations on the spot. No explanation is needed, they will understand, even if they may look confused.
  • Do NOT start rapping or twerking in the street in order somehow to create a rapport and get ‘on their wavelength’. Apart from embarrassing yourself in public and possibly ending up in hospital with a slipped disc, this is cultural appropriation. We note that Miley Cirus’s career has gone downhill since THAT incident.
  • Do NOT attempt to talk like dem and all dat sheeit it’s all good bro…cos u is a honkey not a home skillet.
  • DO apologise for police brutality. You may not feel personally responsible for the deaths of millions of innocent black kids at the hands of cops, but your skin color is a witness to your lies.
  • If you are in your car/SUV when meeting the POC, don’t make the mistake of thinking you are cocooned and safe. Whilst you may think that ‘appearing bigger than you are’ is a successful tactic, this only really works in a safari park when confronting a lion, tiger or other wild beast. POC are smarter than this.
  • If in doubt, just hand over your wallet. Do not look back. By all means walk away hastily, always keeping eye contact, but do not run because they are faster than you.

Remember that most interactions with people of color are trouble-free and end without incident.

In any event, this is how NOT to go about it:

It is mildly unacceptable to say

Yo! Homely! to a black person,

Yo! Cretin! is a better alternative as most of our black brothers and sisters have no clue what a Cretin is.

When the more curious ask, just let them know that its another word for “special” as in Yo! My Main Man denoting a “special” relationship.

The whites where I reside in South Africa, are seriously triggering. They show absolutely no guilt whatsoever in the presence of people of color, and they are assertive and aggressive, even though their shameful past should make them timid and apologetic. I’m so ashamed of my race! What have we even given the world, other than oppression and racism?

Whites literally INVENTED racism! We INVENTED slavery! If other races engaged in these things then there would be movies about it, and it would be in school curriculums! But it isn’t! So that means whites are exclusively responsible for these crimes! Somebody help us check our privilege now before we commit yet another crime against humanity! We’re terrible!

Today we look at one BAAL worshiper practice that may still be going on, at least according to Oprah

It seems that during the spring equinox, temple prostitutes of BAAL temples would do “the deed” on BAAL’s altar.

Those that became pregnant would have their babies taken and the following year, these babies would be sacrificed to BAAL on the same altar, so that the next set of temple prostitutes could be coated in their blood before doing “the deed”

The red colored eggs of Easter are symbolic representation, based on the blood of babies sacrificed to BAAL.

Jews in their ongoing and seemingly endless conversion to BAAL worship may continue this practice to this day (the baby killing part and not the coloring eggs part)

Comments on Jews sacrificing babies to their patron BAAL seems to be out of bounds.

Isn’t that a breach of progressive ethics?

even commenting on the inability to comment on Jews sacrificing babies to their patron God BAAL seems to tick off progressives.

even commenting on the inability to comment on the inability to comment on the Jews sacrificing babies to their patron God BAAL seems counter to progressive goals.

I was hopping for 4 blue screens of death in a row.

Even so! Three is a personal record.

How did Baal the weather and fertility god become Beelzebub the devil? What kinds of sacrifices were made to Baal?

Also where does the Biblical story of the worship of the golden calf come from?

Indians do “worship” Nandi the bull, associated with Lord Shiva, one of the gods of the Hindu trinity. But all statues (until recently) were from black granite, further coated with oil to make it pitch black. Only recently have Hindu gods been dressed up in gold, or made from marble. There was a reason for the black statues, but most Hindus no longer understand it. Whites made simple minded claims of hindu superstition, so it will a long while before the average white understands why the statues are black.

The description may have caused the blue screen of death, but mentioning the common Jewish converts to BAAL was a trigger as well.

On the spring equinox temple prostitutes would do “the deed” on BAAL’s altar. Those that got pregnant would have their babies taken away and sacrificed on that same altar a year later.

The blood would then be used to cover the altar and the temple prostitutes.

The current Easter practice of coloring eggs red is a symbolic representation of that act.

According to Oprah Jews to this day engage in sacrificing babies to BAAL for power.

The golden calf is likely a representation of BAAL.

It is shown with crescent horns and a sphere within the horns. The resemblance to the star and crescent (BAAL’s symbol) is certainly there.

Possibly a different sect, sorta like the Catholics and the Mormons. Both claim to worship the same thing, but the symbols are different.

Republic representative Chaffetz soon to resign due to the “family being more important to him” then a seat in Congress. As a top investigator of the wrongdoings of Hitlery, Obama and other Democrats he will be missed.

Rumors of death threats to his family by Hitlery operatives have been discounted.

The murder of 2 congressional investigators into Clinton misdeed has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO WITH THE RESIGNATION OF CHAFFETZ
