Jackson, Home of Two Oblivious Racists

Mrs. Noisewater just got back from a business trip in Jackson, Mississippi and encountered two of the most oblivious racist comments of all time.  She is half Asian, by the way, and apparently they don't often encounter races other than African American and Caucasian.  So you get these sorts of things . . .

#1

While at a restaurant, a man she didn't even know walked up to her table to ask her what other language besides English that she spoke.  When she replied that English was the only language she was fluent in, the man was shocked.  What a crazy assumption.  I would have responded "Klingon," and then spouted off some angry grunts.

(I was searching for Klingon youtubes, and while there were plenty that made a lot more sense, I had to go with this one because of the pretty girl.  It takes all the way until 3:25 to get to the Klingon part, but good god. she is hot.  Anyway . . .)

#2

Then Mrs. Noisewater is at a meeting in Jackson, and on the way out she drops a pen.  When she bends down to get it a guy actually said, "Oh, I thought you were bowing."  I laughed my damn ass off when she told me that one.

(Now, are these fellas bowing or looking for their pens?)

Do you remember Kwai Chang Caine, played by David Carradine? He was half Chinese and got a lot of racist crap from the redneck cowboys he encountered. If Mrs Noisewater had said "I am Caine" to those guys I would have laughed my butt off.

Wow, I also was going to mention "Kung Fu" in my comment, before I even read Gorilla's remark. If I ever go down south, I'm going to dress as a Cowboy Klingon just to be on the safe side.

Wow. The South is a different place for sure. I got a taste of it when I was in Florida while in the Navy and don't have any desire to go back. Hard to believe stuff like that still goes on.

I know what you're asking yourself and the answer is yes. I have a nickname for my penis. Its called the Octagon, but I also nick named my testes - my left one is James Westfall and my right one is Dr. Kenneth Noisewater. You ladies play your cards right you just might get to meet the whole gang
