Got My Own Per­son­al Trail Of Tears Over Here

Crazy old white la­dy try­ing on wed­ding veil: So I al­ways won­dered why I did­n’t look good in these things…until 2004.
Dis­in­ter­est­ed cus­tomer: Oh?
Crazy old white la­dy: Yeah, then I found out I was part Na­tive Amer­i­can. At least 5%.
Dis­in­ter­est­ed cus­tomer (con­fused): Oh…?
Crazy, old white la­dy: Yeah. That’s why I don’t look good in veils. Cause we Na­tive Amer­i­cans don’t wear them.
Dis­in­ter­est­ed cus­tomer: I got mar­ried in a cour­t­house.
Crazy old white la­dy: I hate to say it since I am part white, but damn those white peo­ple!

Good­will

Stop Be­ing White in Popeye’s!

Black girl #1: Okay, I know what I’m get­ting. Do you know what you’re get­ting?
White girl: I’ve nev­er been here be­fore. Let me look for a while. [Paus­es, then yells.] Wait a minute! Popeye’s a sailor; Why does he sell chick­en?
Black girl #2: Oh my god, shut up now or no more vod­ka for you for the rest of the night!
White girl: Okay. [Gig­gles.] I’m sor­ry.
[Black girls start talk­ing to each other.]White girl, yelling: Why are there no white peo­ple in here?!
Black girl #1: Aww fuck, take her out­side to the car. This is her first and last time ever com­ing here!
