Did you know black people can only own certain kinds of dogs?

This one's a doozy. It's a long reddit post from a black woman about how a food delivery driver called the cops on her at her own home because she thought she stole her own dog. The deep suspicion?

The woman owns a golden retriever. Which is apparently a white people dog?

If you don't want to go through the whole post, let me relieve your mind a touch. The cops were not at all amused by the delivery driver.

14. The full version is a good read.

Nice to read a post so clearly and lucidly written. It's an exercise in restraint and control, for sure. I would have gotten out my old barracks thesaurus and let 'er rip!

16. :) I know what you mean, and me too.

One of the best writers I ever ran into (actually she ran into my car to avoid driving into a hole and left a note) seemingly had little education, and her grammar suggested she wasn't a reader, but her words flowed with an exquisite economy and competence that had me riveted.

17. A friend of our son and DIL has a snow-white Bichon Frise with eyes only

somewhat blacker than her skin. She is so elegant and obviously well off (and spends a fortune on the little mutt's grooming so he is too) that it's hard to imagine that even this woman's notions could hold up to them. No doubt her resentment would do just fine.

3. News to me!

My black friends have all varieties of dogs including one friend who has had only golden retrievers for the twenty-plus years Iíve known her.

Sign..more stupid racist bullshit.

Hubby worked with Leland for yrs.
(Trivia: Ya know he used to play football for the Cowboys. And had to wait 'til after retiring from NASA to come out. He's living back near Roanoke now but came to Katherine Johnson's retirement party.)

He's the kindest soul.

Alas, I (and my whole family) can only admire him from afar. I hope he knows how much America loves and appreciates him.

9. Thankfully Golden Retreivers themselves are a lot smarter and compassionate...

...than the asshole who raised the complaint.

10. delivery driver

cannot understand, Afroican_Americans can like what every other race likes...biscotti, Chinese food, hallah
golden retrievers, collies,(Lassie)I loved that dog and on and on. Trump has done so much damage to race relations by unleashing idiots like the people who call the police on others because they are black and doing something they don't like or deem illegal. I have a good friend named...so I won't do that to her. During his campaign, he told the police to start getting rough in the black community...Breonna Taylor, George Floyd et al. are the consequences of this newly increased summary justice and execution of unarmed and usually non-resisting African-Americans called for by trump. I remember that black person roughed up at one of his 'rallies' and him encouraging the racists to throw him out, violently. That was a red flag for me.
