So I have this Aunt who is always posting mildly racist things on her Facebook, nothing flat out racist but enough that I didn’t want to see it. So I blocked her and told my mom (her sister). My mom was cool with it (she knows how I get about race issues).
So this bitch (I use that term because I honestly mean it), so this bitch cries to my mom, posts this sanctimonious post about how she’s never been accused of such a thing, and agrees with the people responding that I’m obviously not very smart (one person wrote “I’m dating a black man and you’ve never said anything racist to me”) Now she posted on my wall “I’m so glad we’re friends again! I’m coming to visit soon!” Like I give a fuck.
Like that wasn’t meant to call me out to everyone who felt sorry for her (another person said “well everyone is kind of racist”) Then, she has the audacity to message me directly to tell me when she’d be here. I DON’T CARE! You bullied you’re way back into my life and expect me to want to see you? Seriously? Fuck all the way off. Just because you are related to me I am not obligated to put up with your shit.
I even started to feel guilty. I thought “Maybe I’m being too mean, maybe I should use this as an opportunity to educate her. Maybe I’ll be the bigger person!” But my visceral instinct is to throat punch her and be done with it. So for days I’ve been having this internal struggle of what I should do. It’s all really weighing on my mind… and it isn’t fair.
She made me uncomfortable so I removed her from my life and she feels like it’s okay to just plop back in it. I went from thinking “Okay I don’t want to see your post” to “Fuck off you fucking whiny cunt of a lady”. My point is (I knew I’d get to it eventually) don’t ever feel like you have to compromise your beliefs or moral for someone just because they are related to you.
Sorry I swore so much… I’m very mad.
