Who Am I?

Mon Oct 14, 2002 10:10 pm

Who am I?

I am the Latino teenager who works part-time in your mail-room. You know. The one you think is in a gang, just because I use street slang.

Who am I?

I am the Black woman who works in your group. You know. The one who wears her hair in braids, or natural, or dreadlocks. The one you call radical with an attitude.

Who am I?

I am your blind co-worker. You know. The one you always speak loudly to. As though I have a hearing disability, instead of one of sightlessness.

Who am I?

I am the Korean grocer in your neighborhood. You know. The one you call unfriendly, just because I don’t smile enough for you.

Who am I?

I am your administrative assistant. You know. The one you always call “hon” or “sweetie” whenever you want coffee. How many years will it take for you to learn my real name?

Who am I?

I am the new employee who just relocated to your office. You know. The one you imitate all the time, because of my Southern accent.

Who am I?

I am the American Indian. You know. The one you call chief, and ask “how’s my squaw”. If you were interested in me as in an individual, you would know that squaw is a derogatory French Canadian term, and chief is not a word I joke about.

Who am I?

I am the Puerto Rican co-worker. You know. The one who speak Spanish to my friends at home. You think we are talking about you. Don’t flatter yourself.

Who am I?

I am the lesbian, or gay person who is your associate. You know. Oops…maybe you don’t know. I choose not to share that aspect of who I am. Because you and your friends are always joking about “homos” and “queers” and “lesbos”. If you only knew how closely I work with you.

Who am I?

I am the Japanese American female who works as your colleague. You know. The one whose name you make fun of and then expect me to laugh.

Who am I?

I am the Christian woman who travels with you to make client calls. You know. The one you keep apologizing to, every time you tell an off-color joke, or use God’s name in vain. Why do you apologize? You obviously are not sorry, or you would change your behavior.

Who am I?

I am the older man. You know. The one you get impatient with because I don’t talk, move, or drive as fast as you do. One day you will be old, unless you experience the only other alternative.

Who am I?

I am the African American man who works down the hall. You know. The one you and your friends say, I only got my job because of my color, of course not because I was the best candidate.

Who am I?

I am the Chinese American human resource specialist. You know. The one you keep asking to help you with your computer, even though I don’t understand that technical stuff either.

Who am I?

I am the European American male in your office. You know. The one you blame for errors made over 200 years ago. The one you think “has it made”. The one you think “just doesn’t get it”, even though I am your strongest advocate among your peers.


Who am I?

I am an American person. I worry about the environment, education for my children, my next paycheck, crime, and crab grass in my front yard. I am the person who wants to know the real you, if only you would act interested in the real me.

Who am I?

I'm the kid who has a deformed hand. You know, the one who is smart and kind and cares about others even though many other kids and even many adults can't see beyond my fingers.

Who am I?
I'm an asshole. I drive too fast and become irate with others who don't. I have no patience in check-out lines. I drink and get drunk... become loud and crass. I leer at your girlfriends, daughters, or wives... Hey, not even your mother is excluded from my lust! I dislike pets, and think everyone else is an asshole.

IM the funny kid in school who says what he thinks no matter what it is and loves girls. I love attention and get it however I can. I drive 80 or higher most of the time and don't care whether I live or die a lot.
