I knew, when those two dumbasses in Philadelphia (yeah, I said it!) settled for a dollar and a small business loan, which you should be able to get from the bank anyway, it was about to be open season on black people.
In the past week, there's been a number of incidents, including a guy who was choked out by 5-0 at—where else?—a Waffle House after taking his own sister to the prom. Or was he dropping her off? (If so, why was he wearing a tuxedo?) And a girl, who did look kinda homeless, who had the cops called on her for sleeping in the lounge area of a graduate student dorm at Yale.
Here in the STL, we've had two incidents. Well, two that made national headlines. In one, three black kids were detained by 5-0 for trying to buy prom outfits at a Nordstrom Rack. Arguably, that was the ultimate insult, because if you're not going to pay for the merchandise anyway, why not go to a real Nordstrom?
They were followed around in the store by a random old lady who told them that they should be ashamed of themselves for being a buncha thieves, or something to that effect. Old white women will say anything to you, because they know good and well you're not about to go upside their heads. (The more feeble a woman seems, the harder she is to hit, and vice versa.)
Fortunately, when the police showed up, all the kids had to do was explain what happened, and no one got shot or anything. They probably deal with that sort of thing. (Perhaps counter intuitively, rich white girls are the biggest shoplifters. Black guys have better crimes to commit.) The CEO of Nordstrom Rack flew in to apologize. Will the kids also receive a dollar and a small business loan?
There was also an incident at a Schnuck's, the worst grocery store chain in America. A guy manning the Western Union terminal behind the service desk (one of my many old jobs) refused to give a black couple a money order. First he said it was because the guy tried to use a debit card and had an out-of-state ID, which is not a policy that exists. Then when the guy tried to pay in cash, he still wouldn't do it. Tha fuck?
They fired the guy working the counter, but I'm about to stop shopping there anyway. I've had my own problems there, with people following me around just because I'm trying to buy some beer. Oddly enough, at least half the people who shop there are black. But a lot of black people don't drink beer, and I dress like a homeless person. And sometimes I cop those 32 oz cans of High Life.
But this is not about me (unless I can get some sort of settlement).
