It's cultural.....

13 Jun, 2024

The other day while leaving a Walmart parking lot (I know...shame on me for being at any Walmart), I noticed a man leaning on a shopping cart while his wife unloaded the groceries. I could tell they were Muslin, by her clothing...... After she unloaded all the groceries into the back of their SUV, she jumped to reach the top of the door to close it. She had to jump a few times to reach it, he stood by laughing, as he watched her. Once it closed, he pointed her in the direction of where to return the cart....I sat and watched in amazement. When she was out of view I  drove by and hollered at him for being such an asshole. I posted about this on twitter just to get opinions on whether or not I over reacted and should have minded my business.....

A couple of people made the comment "it's a cultural thing".....that comment, whenever made to any instance, always irritates me. It does so because justifying, or accepting something just because it has history isn't acceptable to me,and it's not a justification. Bad behavior, cruelty, violence, etc, is just that. Because history has allowed something to continue on, doesn't mean it should continue.....
