I Am My Own Movie Star

Holy shit. So I’m sitting in my office doing my thing and two coworkers are in the kitchen (right outside of my office) having one of their inane political discussion. All of the sudden I hear one say “If I’m in a room with a Muslim, I don’t care if they’re good or bad, they’re all bad, I will take a sledgehammer to them.” And the other responds by laughing. My jaw literally dropped. I can’t believe I work with these people. And the second coworker is black, how does a black person LAUGH at that sort of outright racism? (And yes, the rest of the conversation proved that it was not just a shock reaction. She went on to agree and say the problem with torturing Muslim prisoners is that they took pictures of it and got caught.)
