It Can't Get Worse Than This

Now this is one big nightmare!  Hope you have a sense of humor.  Sent to me by a friend. 

The Nightmare

In the nightmare I found myself nude in bed, and I was looking at a mirror on the ceiling, and I discovered that I am a Negro, and I'm circumcised!

Quickly I sat up, found my pants and looked in the pockets to find my driver's license photo and it was that same color. Black.

I felt myself being very depressed, downcast, sitting in a chair.

       But it's a wheelchair!!

That means, of course, besides being black and Jewish, I'm also disabled!!!

I said to myself, aloud 'This is impossible. It's impossible that I should be black and Jewish and disabled.'

'It's the pure and holy truth', whispers someone from behind me.

I turn around, and it's my boyfriend.

Just what I needed!!!

I am a homosexual, and on top of that with a Mexican boyfriend..

Oh, my God..... black, Jewish, disabled, gay, with a Mexican boyfriend, drug addict, and HIV-positive!!!

Desperate, I begin to shout, cry, pull my hair, and Oh, noooooo...I'm bald!!!

The telephone rings.

It's my brother.

He is saying, 'Since mom and dad died the only thing you do is hang out, take drugs, and laze around all day doing nothing. Get a job you worthless piece of crap... Any job.'

Mom?... Dad?... Nooooooooo... Now I'm also an unemployed orphan!

I try to explain to my brother how hard it is to find a job when you are black, Jewish, disabled, gay with a Mexican boyfriend, are a drug addict, HIV positive, bald, and an orphan.

But he doesn't get it.

Frustrated, I hang up.

It's then I realize I only have one hand!!!

With tears in my eyes I go to the window to look out.

I see I live in a shanty-town full of cardboard and tin houses! There is trash everywhere.

Suddenly I feel a sharp pain near my pacemaker.... Pacemaker?

Besides being black, Jewish, disabled, a fairy with a Mexican boyfriend, a drug addict, HIV positive, bald, orphaned, unemployed, an invalid with one hand, and having a bad heart, I live in a crappy neighborhood.

At that very moment my boyfriend approaches and says to me, 'Sweetie pie, my love, my little black heart throb, have you decided what you are going to wear to Washington to see Obama.

Say it isn't so!!! I can handle being a black, disabled, one armed, drug addicted, Jewish homosexual on a pacemaker who is HIV positive, bald, orphaned, unemployed, lives in a slum, and has a Mexican boyfriend,

but please, oh dear God, please don't tell me I'm a Democrat ...

Don't know but I find solace in the fact that some who fall under the ethnicity mentioned here were ok with the joke even laughing at it as my black friend here and Leauki, being a Jew.

I find that kind of joke even useful.

It points out that there is still a stigma associated with being black or being Jewish but that it is in reality not as bad as things one does (rather than is).

The point is that being black or Jewish is not bad. That's a fact. But some people treat blacks and Jews differently. The joke makes fun of them by pretending that being black or Jewish is bad per se but not as bad as some other things.

It's similar to the old Jewish joke about the Jewish mother who learns that her son is getting "married" to a guy named Miguel. "Couldn't he choose a nice Jewish guy?"

The joke is based on comparing things perceived as bad by treating their badness level as a real thing and in doing so exposing those who really are bigoted.

And there is nothing wrong with that.
