FB slip of the tounge.

One of my friends posted:
I'm dreaming of a white Martin Luther King day
White as in snow. He doesn't get the irony, yet... One of his friends subtlly called him out. Still doesn't get it.

Re: FB slip of the tounge.

  • I was so confused, being that snow is the furthest thing from my mind on this sunny 72 degree December day, I was just like, wow your friend is really racist or has an odd sense of humor. Now I get it ;)

    I'd kill for either snow or a sunny 72* day. It isn't worth being in the cold with out the snow. We are supposed to get snow today, but it is going to be 51* tomorrow so it'll all melt. again.

    Oh, and he's not racist. Just not too bright apparently.

  • After another call out, this was the explaination:

    "Didn't have a white Christmas, no white New Years, next holiday on the calendar was MLK."

     

    Here's to snow. I just want snow.

    Like, "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas..." But snow has yet to stick around. He wants snow. Just didn't think of his words before typing.

    This is probably what he should have said in the first place, but I understand that he meant no harm.  The saying is true that you can't tell intent/tone over the internet. This is definitely an "open mouth, insert foot" kinda moment for him.
