Look, I Think

Reprinted from Chumps on Parade (February 1998)

I’ll admit it, I’m not your favorite guy on the planet. But come on, can you make such a blatant, and stupid accusation? In the past few weeks, I have come across a great number of people that seem to disregard what I, and others like me have to say, on the basis of “it’s not right”. What does that mean? “It’s not right?” What the fuck is that? To me what it says, is your so scared to hear something different, you just blow it off, run away, and hide from THINKING. Hey, let’s not waste our time doing such a strenuous activity.

Yeah, our brains. What more are they good for then letting us pop open that bottle of vodka or getting that bong to our face. Hey, this is the last call for regrets, anyone who wants in on INTELLIGENCE, please speak up now. Nobody? Okay, the bar’s closed, and so are your minds. Let’s face it, in the past 50 years, there hasn’t been much more than scandal in this country. There has been good, now you can logon to your favorite Yahoo chocolate drink web page (and even see a commercial with their neato Frito page on it), and that didn’t happen 5 years ago, let alone 50. So technology has come a ways, (of course there are 2 faces to that monster, as with everything).

But if you think about it there’s not much more than a rise in stupid, pointless, and the scariest part of all, ACCEPTED hate out there. It seems there has been a big rash (trendy? oh god.. don’t tell me this is “trendy”) of a bunch of white trash skinhead racist sexist homophobes. Basically saying “see, we’re white, male, and straight! How much closer to GOD can you get!?” Well you certainly aren’t *my* god, and if you have any decency at all, then sometime in the rest of your narrow-minded, pitiful life, you’ll find a way to regress these sins. (Wait, sins? that wasn’t the term I wanted, uh, maybe misconceptions? well yeah, to put it lightly anyway) and realize that, well let’s start from the top.


So yeah, if you are some big buff white guy, with no hair, and a shirt saying, “Aryan American” I guess you could re-arrange my face and I probably wouldn’t have much to say about it. Rearrange my mind? Not in the least. If you fuckers go out beating up a bunch of people because they’re black, oriental, Mexican, anything other than your “I’m so clean” palette, you think that’s going to get you anywhere? There’s a very primitive, natural instinct that is in every animate, living thing, from lizards to humans, and it’s if you fuck with someone for a) no reason, and b) too often, it’ll come back to bite you in the ass (karma? I think mom & pop were right for once eh?).

This point is described well in a movie I recently rented; it was the Jurassic Park sequel, Lost World. This team of “scientists” comes in to capture a bunch of dinosaurs for financial gain. There is one species that are really small and basically harmless alone. Well, one comes up to a guy with a big electric tazer, and the guy says “look, its like he isn’t even scared of me” (like that’s just *such* a surprise. 65 billion years ago? god, must of been near-heaven), the scientist type-guy says “he has no reason to be, humans have never harmed them.” So the fuck face bonehead decides to apply the red-hot tazer to it for no reason.


Later in the movie, 30 of them gnaw this guy to death. Probably a slow and painful death. Anyway, moving to the point. If you haven’t been doing your homework (apparently black flag did, as they wrote a song about it) The white Caucasian is becoming a *minority*. So keep beating the fuck out of other people because of their color, and in 20-30 years, when you are on the ground bleeding after about 10 black guys kick your ass, don’t expect sympathy from as much as the hill of ants 5 feet from your immobile face. Being paralyzed is very FRUSTRATING.
