Costa Rica and White Privilege

So much to talk about here and not really sure where to start…

Been in Costa Rica for the past week and it’s been a great trip although I’ve been really lonely and sad for most of it. Apple was supposed to come but he got rejected at the boarder (honestly, not sure I believe that story). So it’s been just me, Hut, Sean and Polly. The same group as Japan. It’s been really making me miss Yasuo (from Japan!). The trip overall has been good but it’s been raining a lot. We did some zip lining, some amazing hot springs, lots of hiking (and STAIRS) and that’s basically it. Today is the last full day and then back to reality.

It’s been sad because I hate being single on trips. I hate that I have this cute, romantic hotel room. I hate that we go to these amazing hot springs that would be great to cuddle and make out in. Etc etc. I should have been married by now but I fucked it up and I’m going to regret it forever.

Darin and I got into a huge discussion about White Privilege. It honestly really pissed me off. I sent him this funny picture of a bunch of dudes around a thanksgiving table all dressed exactly a like and he started off with this comment about how “obviously they don’t want to include other races”. First off you cannot tell that just by ONE PICTURE. He is being just as racist by ASSUMING that they excluded other races. There’s many reasons it could have been all white. and then he made this comment about how they all have white privilege, blah blah blah. And honestly I’m getting sick of this kind of shit. Everyone bashes white people/guys for being racist and having white privilege. But then they are hypocrites. It’s NOT ok for a white guy to say “No Asains” or “No blacks” but it’s totally cool for an asian guy to say “No whites” or a black guy to say “no whites”. NO, it shouldn’t be! It goes both ways. Just really frustrates me. There’s way more too it but honestly I just don’t want to get into it here.

Tony messaged me randomly the other day and said “I really enjoyed my trip to CA, want to do it again soon” So that made me feel really good 🙂

There’s other stuff to talk about but I just don’t know and don’t feel like it at the moment. Off to go enjoy the last day in Costa Rica. See you soon boys.
