We are all our beautiful creations of God. Black, white, gay, lesbian or straight all should be loved and respected equally.
My husband and I have been together for 8 years, and I have never once seen or heard him be mean. He is literally the nicest dude, kinda quiet, and super non-confrontational.
He loves to play Call of Duty. Like I said, he’s a pretty quiet guy, so normally he plays with strangers with his mic off, but today he was playing and I was cleaning in the other room and I hear him go, “WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY?!”
His voice was so angry it sounded different- like deep and gravely. I ran into the living room, panicked, to see what in the world was going on, and I saw he was standing up, hands balled into fists, with his mic down.
Because he had his headset on, I couldn’t hear what the other two were saying, but he was livid, using all the hand gestures, and saying things like AT LEAST I HAVE A LIFE, YOU ARE DISGUSTING, YOU MUST BE SO FRAGILE, DO YOU FEEL COOL?! IS THAT WHAT IT TAKES?!
And then I see one of his teammates blink off the screen.
The other teammate is quiet for a few seconds before saying something, and my husband responds, “I’m sorry, dude. What a ****. He’s just mad because he’s insecure about himself.” And he tells him to have a nice day, and turns off the TV.
And he turned around to find me, standing there worried and in utter confusion, and calmly says, “He called him the “n” word. Who does that? Sorry, I had to say something, I couldn’t just let him do that. Man was a piece of trash.”
He continued to rant for another 10 minutes about the things this man was saying after he found out their other teammate was black, and how he couldn’t believe people like that still exist, and so openly.
The other teammate ended up sending him a friend request, and they’ve made plans to play tomorrow afternoon. And I’m having a hard time trying to come up with the right words to describe how it makes me feel, so I’ll just say this: I am one proud wife.
