[Image: Two images. The first is of the late comedian Mitch Hedberg, a white man with shoulder length blonde hair, holding a microphone and smiling. The caption reads: “I don’t need a receipt for a donut. I’ll just give you the money, you give me the donut. End of transaction. We don’t need to bring ink and paper into this. I just cannot imagine a scenario where I would have to prove that I bought a donut.”
The second image is of comedian Patrice O’Neal, a black man speaking while holding a microphone. The caption reads: “I do a lot of stuff to protect myself. I keep my receipts. I collect receipts cause that’s a trail of where you been man. Everywhere I go I get a receipt. And I never go more than a half hour without buying something cause you could kill somebody in a half hour, and then you need an alibi.”]

Perspective and receipts.

White people hate receipts. My momma always told me to get a receipt for this very reason

Damn. Truth. And white supremacist shielding in a nutshell.
Also, it’s even doubly ironic because Mitch Hedberg was well known to have used a lot of drugs and a lot of his stand up was based on being a “stoner”. Which means that basically, he was funny by flaunting publicly that he did narcotics. And yet, even as a drug user, he never felt the need to keep receipts. Never imagined why - even as a person who regularly did things that broke the law (yes, even a shitty law) - he’d need to prove he bought a donut somewhere. 
Patrice O’Neal who has never publicly - to my knowledge - talked about doing drugs, much less based his comedy on it - keeps receipts and can well imagine that he needs to have every half hour of his life accounted for. 
Seriously. PERFECT EXAMPLE OF RACISM AND WHITE SUPREMACY.
