With so many states, some redneck red and some more purplish, competing with Texas in the racist and homophobic department these days it’s nice to see that Texas is still king when it comes to out-and-out racist nonsense. If everything in Texas is bigger, it must mean that its racists are gigantic David Dukes.
It seems a Texan man believes letting a black man bag his groceries is a gross violation of his religious freedom and he’s not going to let this hard-working black man ruin his love affair with loving everyone and treating them according to his congenial faith. DeWitt R. Thomas filed a federal lawsuit in July against Keith Langston, owner of Two Rivers Grocery & Market, after the owner told him to leave his grocery store and never come back following a heated exchange in which Thomas refused to allow a black man bag his groceries.
“Wait a minute, don’t touch my groceries. I can’t have someone negroidal touch my food. It’s against my creed,” said Thomas, according to nine-page, hand-written lawsuit (Source: Little Green Footballs).
Giving whole new meaning to frivolous lawsuits and whatever the hell “Negroidal” (sounds like an ointment for a rash) means, Hawkins claims that by ejecting him from the store, the owner explicitly violated his alleged faith.
From Little Green Footballs:
According to the lawsuit, Thomas went on to explain he meant a black person when he used the term “negroidal.”The sacker, Aaron Menefee, said he thought Thomas was just kidding around.
“The first time he said it, I thought he was joking,” Menefee said. “Then he just kept repeating it.”
