I had the displeasure of meeting a woman today at my children’s school. First of all, I live in a predominantly Vietnamese subdivision, therefore the school in the neighborhood is also predominantly Vietnamese. I took my son in to complete his screening for his upcoming kindergarten school year when this lady, who happens to be white, walks in and have a seat next to me. I spoke, and that opened up the flood doors. This lady goes off about why in the hell are all of these “Chinese” people here teaching our children. I was shocked and prepared myself because I knew every word from that point was subject to be trash flowing from this ignorant woman’s mouth. She kept on and on about how Donald Trump is going to send these chinks back to where they came from. She blurted out, then they’re over here taking all of our damned jobs. I looked at her thinking in my head “heffa you look like you haven’t seen a job since a job saw you”. I continued listening to her rant about the “Mexican’s” and the “Chinese” and how they have no business over here speaking all of that “chink chonk nonsense”.

After I couldn’t take anymore I looked at her and said, “One thing I do know about the Vietnamese and Latino population is that they work together rather against one another. They have an advantage over us because they’ve taken the time out to learn English, and we’re so busy complaining that we’ve missed the opportunity to learn they’re language. I told her here in America being bilingual is a plus when it comes to finding jobs since we are such a diverse country.

I was hoping that she caught that I was trying to show her how unintelligent and mean she sounded. But she went on talking (in front of her kids) about how her baby daddy is Dominican and he can take his ass back to where he came from too. I just thought that there is no hope for a small mind like hers. While she was still ranting and raving I pulled out a book and began reading in an effort to ignore her because I did not want to waste my time talking to someone who could come off so trashy within the first five minutes of meeting them. Just as I was doing so, my son’s teacher from pre-k walked up. We hugged and carried on a conversation about his educational growth. While we were talking I had the opportunity to meet his new teacher and while we were all talking this rude ass lady loudly burst out saying, “I’ll bet the fucking principal is Chinese too”.

We all ignored her, but I’m sure we were all thinking the same thing.

-It’s funny how she degraded herself with the same mouth she tried degrading others with. I wander what she would have said about the black woman sitting next to her if she had the right audience.
