First things first – if you’re having to argue the point that you’re not a racist, you’re probably a racist.
One man who has taken this to extremes is US school bus driver John Naisbitt, 78, who is accused of dragging a mixed race boy down the street after his backpack got caught in the doors of his vehicle.
The boy’s mum, Brenda Mayes, said the driver did this on purpose because of the colour of his skin, claiming that Naisbitt is a racist. Here’s what she told local news outlets:
I was glad he didn’t kill him. I was glad he didn’t go under the wheels.
I’m not surprised, the poor kid must’ve been terrified. Instead of countering these statements in the way any decent human would – you know, by apologising and making amends – he reckons he’s not a racist because, wait for it, he’s got a black dog. Unbelievable.
When asked if he’s a racist, he said:
Not at all. Look at my dog. He’s as black as can be.
Oh Naisbitt, not only are you a bigot but you’re a moron too (although those two things normally do go hand-in-hand). And if you’re wondering if it was a genuine mistake, apparently he has a history of discriminatory behaviour – and, as you’ll see in the footage, the other kids were clearly flagging the fact that a kid was getting dragged across the street.
The school he drove for has since fired Naisbitt over the incident, stating:
When issues of discrimination are raised at any time, they are investigated thoroughly.
The Davis School District takes any claims of racial discrimination seriously and does not tolerate any form of racial discrimination in our schools.
