The Northwest faced particularly brutal weather last week, which meteorologists are calling the most racist storm of the century. The near blizzard snow storm which began December 30th, and subsided days later, plummeted minority communities, literally punching them in the face. The racist sheet of snow forced many minority groups, like blacks for example, into their homes and out of the workplace.
While some Northwesterners have called this storm just a fluke, others are suggesting foul play.
One resident was attacked by the weather just leaving her home. “I walked out my front door,” says hate crime victim, Penelope Mardre, “and I slip on some ice and fall into a pile of snow. Then the snow is getting everywhere, on my arms and legs. . .down my pants. And when I think it’s going to be all over and I can go back inside, snow hits me right in the eye. And by now I’m crying, freezing and wet, and I have to think that the only reason I was targeted like this is because I’m a Mexican.”
Other workers are angry about their inability to receive a paycheck. “I can’t believe they did this to us,” says resident of Tacoma, Victor Tyson, “White people are having the time of their lives not going to work and letting their kids play outside. But not my family. I can’t even go to work if I wanted to, and I’m not letting my kids go out and play in that shit. When was the last time you saw a black snowman in this country?”
Asian meteorologist, Chris Hyrotaki concurs. “You see when rain turns to snow, it can choose to be any color. In some parts of the world, snow comes out black or yellow or Hispanic. But of course, in Caucasian dominated America, the whites have to one up us once more with white snow. What’s next? Separate drinking fountains? How much power do you need, white people? How much power do you need?”
White people have yet to respond to Chris Hyrotaki’s question but some analysts believe the answer is “a lot.” Snow is expected to fall again this January before the clouds dry up and warm blue skies pervade the Northwest.
