Jonesy is a racist

I get accused of racism frequently by liberals. Here was one of my recent replies. Tim accused me, Maury, of being a racist because I didn’t like Obama.

Gee, Tim, I didn’t know I was a racist. I’ve got a daughter-in-law who is black as the ace of spades–and her son, my grandson— has a brown skin. I love them both. My sister is full-blooded Navajo and I love her. I have quite a number of close friends who are Hispanic. Nolan was the Best Man at my wedding.  His mother was Mexican (we called them in those days). I was born and raised in southern Arizona so I had LOTS of Mexican friends while growing up. The Mormon Missionaries here in Jackson love me and I love them and they are Hispanic. A couple of my best friends are African American.

I guess I’ll have to repent from being racist. What do I do now, Tim? I’m at a loss as to know how to correct this flaw in my character.

Oh, I forgot one more thing, Tim, which shows the racist flaw in my character;

Last election I voted for Taylor Haynes for Governor of Wyoming.
He’s a Wyoming cowboy who has either been out in the sun WAY too long or he is of African-American ancestry. His skin is b-l-a-c-k. (shudder) I voted for him. A really good man and a patriot with cowboy common sense.

We racists have no scruples: we will vote for the best person for the job no matter the color.

Oh, and by the way, I am also misogynist (noun: 1. a person who dislikes, despises, or is strongly prejudiced against women.) I didn’t like Hillary and didn’t vote for her. That is proof of another flaw in my character. In my defense, I loved my mother, I love my wife, I love my three sisters, I love my four daughters, I love my six granddaughters, and I love many many women for the beautiful people that they are–inside and out. I have a hard time reconciling that with my misogyny.

I’m working on my misogyny as hard as I’m working on my racism. Please help me, psychiatrist Dr. Welch.


About Jonesy

Born and raised in Arizona. I've lived in Wyoming since 1983, currently in Jackson Hole. A lifetime of working with horses, taking tourists on trails in the high mountains, including scenic summer trips and fall hunting. I owned a gun shop for 5 years. I owned numerous other businesses over the decades. Active in conservative politics. So my "Cowboy Common Sense" draws on a LOT of life experiences.
