It’s 2am and I am wide awake. You, I am sure, are fast asleep. I know this to be a fact because your behavior towards me during our 2 minute interaction was so callous as to prove, definitively, that you are a deranged sociopath.
I have cried for hours, replaying the incident between us. You, of course, walked off without any concern or awareness of how your cruelty would affect me. I am a sensitive, caring individual – unlike you – which is why I am writing this blog post to inform the entire world of the grievous wrong you did. I know that the entire world will be interested in what I have to say because I am an extremely important person, far more so than you.
Earlier this evening, we were both at a location where groups of people go to interact with each other in public. Clearly my group of people had the right to do whatever we wanted regardless of its impact on anyone else. I mean, it is a public place, right? Therefore no rules of conduct exist.
Apparently you were not happy with the behavior of individuals within my group. Instead of recognizing our superiority to you, and therefore our innate right to disrupt everyone else, you decided to ask me to do something about it. I was so shocked that someone might think their rights are equal to mine that I was unable respond. All my life I have been treated as the most special person in every situation, and your action towards me was incomprehensible. You actually thought it was acceptable to ask for the behavior to stop. You did this unaware of the year’s long history and issues of every single person in my group, and how that causal relationship made us blameless for the results of behaviors we knew would occur. If you had even an ounce of compassion or humanity, you would have realized that we counted for more than you. I have no idea why you felt the need to speak up; and I do not care. The personal histories of people in your group are of no concern to me.
In closing, I am hoping you see this open letter, and realize how very wrong you were to expect rights equal to mine. I hope that the entire online world takes my side in understanding that some of us, mostly young and privileged, always White, and generally with higher incomes, count more than everyone else.
