She asked me the room number....not even one question that Only i could answer, like my home address. He was a very clean-cut looking white guy but I am sure had he been black she would have been a lot more resistant......I think I see a new career...looting hotel rooms. Anyone in?
    So the receptionist is white?

    You very specifically indicate that he was a "clean cut" white guy but your hypothesis doesn't presume the appearance of the black man beyond being black, nor does it include a white guy who is not so "clean cut", and most egregiously it doesn't allow for the possibility the desk clerk doesn't have the capacity to care about your room being robbed.

    1 Not all blacks are criminals.

    2 Not all people believe that all blacks are criminals.

    3 Not all people are foolish enough to believe that white people would not steal from them if given the chance.

    4 Not all white people are minority suck ups.

    I'm a mixed race, but my life was never made hard because of that. I was mentally ill since the 1970's and that screwed me up more than you can possibly imagine. Put me up against anyone, I believe I'm better in spite of my afflictions. I'm "privlidged" because I'm a tiger and you're a bunny rabbit.

    I'm just saying that I have faced a ton of discrimination. Some of it was for being pagan, some of it for being a man. Most of it was because I simply could not function as a normal man. At the end of the day, I had to fix my own problems. It was never my contention that I was powerless over my situation. I'm not intesested in racist opinions about who is at a disadvantage.
