Random Customer: “I am so tired of all the racism in this county. The Republicans calling Barack Obama a monkey. It’s bullshit. All these racist bastards who don’t want to vote for Barack Obama because he’s Black. Don’t vote on someone for their color, you vote on someone for their ideas. To vote on their skin, that’s just wrong. I wish people would call them out on that.” Forty seconds of unnecessary patter go by before he says “I”m really glad Clinton is backing him. Bill, not Hillary. I don’t know why they even tried to run Hillary. Who’d vote for a woman? They’re all menopause and emotions. Too stupid to be President.”
Me: “Didn't you just say you should vote on someone for their ideas, and not their skin tone? So, generalizing by race is wrong, but stereotyping a gender is totally acceptable?”
RC: “They’re different. I mean, we can argue over why no one would vote for a squirrel for president, and you could say I was generalizing by species. The two things are not comparable. Women can not ever be Presidents.”
And that, your honor, was why I beat him to death with my industrial sized stapler.
