The History of Racial Profiling


The day it all started was MARCH 6, 1836.

On that fateful day, Davy Crockett woke up and rose 
from his bunk on the main floor of the Alamo and 
walked up to the observation post along the west wall 
of the fort.  William B. Travis and  Jim Bowie were 
already there, looking out over the top of  the wall.  
He joined them.

These three great men gazed at the hordes of Mexicans 
moving towards the Alamo.

With a puzzled look on his face, Crockett turned to 
Bowie and said, "Jim, are we, by any chance, 
having any landscaping done today?"

Tell the truth, are you now suffering
from white guilt after reading this?

Thanks Mr. Trailbee!

Woe is me, I'm suffering.

"Davy Crockett woke up and rose from his bunk on the main floor of the Alamo." He should have asked Bill and Jim if they were there to make his bunk.

Since 1836, hordes of Mexicans have been storming our borders...and hell no I'm not going to feel guilty.

Yeah just look at how many damn gardeners we have now. Shoulda built that fence back then, that or invaded Mexico then, taught them to speak English and we'd have been done with it.

LL said...

It's not ONLY the gardening. They also take care of my swimming pool. "Pigeon holing" wet backs into one type of manual labor is racist.

Interesting, as you should be.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Curmudgeon, you must be a conservative then.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

MadJack, that place is an embarrassment. Just think if all the illegals had stayed there and had a revolution. That place would be fixed.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

LL, oh no, I shouldn't of read your comment.

Sandee said...

No, I'm not suffering from white guilt. Not one bit.

Have a fabulous day Odie. ☺

Curmudgeon said...

Guilty as charged.

White guilt??? I'm not into fiction. White Privilege??? Again, not into fiction. My dad was a millwright foreman (welding was his specialty trade courtesy of the U.S. Navy) and my mom was a secretary. All my education was paid for by my folks and me, while working part time. No scholarships and all my education was in public schools/institutions supported by my parents as taxpayers and the tuition we paid. In my employment I was paid for my work product, not some mythical white privilege crap. Liberals be damned. No one gave me anything I didn't work for and earn. No special family connections. No welfare services provided to me or my family.

Weren't the Mexicans who took the land from the Comanches considered also white people?

As for white privilege, I just checked mine.

It's fine, thank you.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Yeah, ain't it great.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Sandee, not just a little?

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Robert, you don't feel a little guilty you worked so hard? Just teasing.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

edutcher, the left confuse "White Privilege" with our good work ethic.

Euripides said...

Ok. I laughed. Then I got back in line to read it again.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Euripides, hope you didn't suffer too badly.

The more things change the more things stay the same. Thanks to Holder and the ATF they just have better guns now.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

sig94, I hear Holder is even packing.

cube said...

No white liberal guilt here.

BTW did you know that there's no basement in the Alamo? ;)

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Cube, it's since been filled in.
