Be green eyed pale Spaniard-American at UT
Getting some delicious Mexican food from a food truck near campus
Make order and have a little banter about soccer and life with the friendly cook in Spanish
All of a sudden as I get my order and go sit down near the bus stop a neon blue haired girl comes up to me with a face of rage
"Hey, I really think its wrong what you just did to that proud latino-american there dude."
"You totally were disenfranchising him and culturally appropriating his language."
I scoff at the ridiculousness of her statement and ask "Are you joking or something?"
"Don't think its funny asshole! White man appropriating other peoples cultures is a serious thing and one of the problems of the systemic racism we face every day here in this country!"
At that moment my Nicaraguan friend walks up as he takes this bus home too asking what all the yelling was about, I tell him in Spanish whats up when the girl blows up
"OH! AND NOW YOU'RE GONNA DO IT NOT JUST TO AN UNDERPRIVILEGED AND UNEDUCATED WORKER BUT TO A FELLOW PEER?!
She turns to my friend
"HOW CAN YOU BE OK WITH THIS!?"
We both just laugh and walk closer back to the food truck, calling to the cook and telling him what she just said. He then scowls at her and says in his accented English
"Lady, you a goddamn racist. He a'spanish. From E-spain. We all speakin' this language from our culture. You act-a like crazy bitch to say we can no share and talk with other people culture! If he was white boy, what wrong wit him learnin' to e-speak my language? We share together and live together. Why the fuck you putting up rule and walls! Why you go to college if you so fucking stupid lady, Chingow ese mujer."
Suddenly everyone around, even her own neon haired friends are turning on her and yelling at her as me and my friend board the bus laughing the whole way
I'll never understand this SJW shit, but its funny as fuck to watch backfire.
