Quote# 89022

A Hawkins man is claiming his civil rights and religious freedom were violated earlier this year when a black man sacked his groceries and a Big Sandy grocery store owner banned the customer from the business.
DeWitt R. Thomas filed a federal lawsuit in July against Keith Langston, owner of Two Rivers Grocery & Market.
According to the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Tyler, Thomas entered the market on March 5 to buy food.
He stated in a nine-page, hand-written lawsuit that he told the grocery sacker, a black man, “Wait a minute, don’t touch my groceries. I can’t have someone negroidal touch my food. It’s against my creed.”
Thomas claimed the cashier was “perplexed” by his request and yelled at him to take his items and leave.
In a telephone interview Wednesday, Thomas said, “It’s pretty simple. They treated me really bad because I told them it was against my creed.”
According to the lawsuit, Thomas went on to explain he meant a black person when he used the term “negroidal.”
...
When Thomas returned two days later, he noticed the same black man would be sacking his groceries, so he again requested the “Negro” not handle his groceries, according to the lawsuit.

His creed... the Church of the Creator or Christion Idendity?
The judges will laugh at his chutzpah:
he thought his civil rights have been violated but:
1)It was the decent people's rights who are violated by the very existence of this scumbag.

2)He have been banned from this grocery: it's normal, a storeowner don't have to welcome patrons who insults at the employees and who behaves themselves as thugs.

Doubting Thomas

What about "We reserve the right to refuse service" that these idiots always claim is a God-given right to business owners? Apparently it doesn't apply when it's a white racist who's being kicked out.

"We reserve the right to refuse service to assholes like you."

Oooh, I hope he gets costs awarded against him, and a really sharky lawyer!

Nice to see the owner of Big Sandy had some integrity and told this bastard to keep the hell away from his establishment instead of trying to appease him. Mr. Langston I would like to buy you a beer.

"... I told them it was against my creed.”

Let me guess: Christian Identity, right?

"It’s against my creed"

Christian Identity or Aryan Nations?

Oh My Dog!

I told them it was against my creed.

Go complain to your Imperial Kludd, sheet-boy.

I hope the cashier sues Thomas's ass for insulting him and the storeowner sues for frivolous lawsuit.

I'm guessing this isn't the same Two Rivers where the excellent Jade Empire game starts at.

In all seriousness though, that's a novel way to try and make racism into a legitimate way of thinking. It's still bullshit, of course, and should be always pointed out as such.

Who in the hell does he think handled the food at the processing plants, drove it to the stores, and put it out for sale?

I'm half convinced this is some trolling attempt to point out that religion doesn't justify bigotry. But the words are so Stormfronty that I can just as easily believe someone out there is that crazy and racist.

If only creed really worked like that. Think about all the things you could get away with:

"It's against my creed for me to be arrested for armed robbery."

"It's against my creed to be told to 'turn the volume down'."

"It's against my creed to not fly First Class for free."

etc.

Did he really need a nine page hand-written document to say so little?

I for one hope this gentleman confuses a plastic bag for his Klan hood.

There are a lot of fundies out there and not enough room for all their nonsensical rantings.

Christian or Assassin?

@Catgirl fetish:

I'm guessing Christian; Assassin's tend to be a pretty welcoming bunch. As long as you're into stabbing Templars, they don't care too much about the color of your skin.

Thank you for reminding me why I got the hell out of east texas as soon as I could.

No, the Big Sandy/Hawkins/Tyler area is full of ignorant fucks like this.

He should probably consider staying at home and growing all of his own food, since there's every chance that the food he eats was handled by someone he didn't like on its way to the store.

Get used to a diet consisting solely of food you yourself grew, Tommy. It's the only way you'll ever be sure.

@Tempus:

With any luck, his farming skills would prove to be as vast and comprehensive as his tolerance for minorities.

Really? I thought your creed involved black folk doing all the menial work like bagging groceries, picking cotton, pleasing your wife behind your back, and waiting on you hand and foot like the good old days before the South got the shit kicked out of it and had to end the only economic practice that kept its inept leadership and high society financially afloat.
