Scary is the new Black

I saw a poll that claimed America thinks that race relations have gotten worse.  Now when they say America, they mean White Americans.

White Americans think race relations have gotten worse because of cell phone cameras showing videos of racism in action.  Most disturbing of all are the videos on YouTube of the police waving their guns at black teen girls and of the police shooting black men.  The white people who have little but the most cursory interactions with black people, say no more than with a salesperson in a department store, can see with their own eyes what black people are going through.  The white people realize, “OMG, those black people are right.  This is bad.  I wouldn’t want that to happen to me.”


White people are scared.  White people now fear the modern equivalent of a slave revolt, that is, a riot in the streets of their neighborhoods. 

Black people are scared too.  Black people still remember the Jim Crow laws of the past.  They know that white people rule the world and when white people get scared, they do bad things like call out the police and the state militia to enforce “public safety”, violently if need be. 

The solution to today's race problem is to follow a saying from the Bible and adopted by children of the 1960s, “Love thy Neighbor”.  So, let’s get on with it and have more interracial romances.

A Subway Journey Home

by The Urban Blabbermouth. Comments are welcome! ~ There is a ritual to theNew York City subway system. Once there, you lose your humanity.  You are transformed into a savage, brutal and selfish automaton.  Savage in that you push and shove other riders out of your way to get into the subway car.  Brutal in that you never excuse yourself for any atrocities that you commit to get in the subway car.  Selfish in that you never give up your seat to anyone, no matter how crippled or old or pregnant they are.  Automaton in that you never look at any one else as a human being.

Now there are certain strategies that you can employ to be a successful subway rider.  You can stand by the door and obstruct the way just to be selfish and ornery.  That strategy is designed to increase your standing with your fellow passengers by impressing them with how vicious you can be pushing back at people trying to push into the car.  Whenever I see this strategy employed, I immediately piggy back on it.  I move …

Im gonna git u Sukkah

by The Urban Blabbermouth [who may or may not be shown in the photo above... - v-E] ~ True story. I am walking to my car and I notice a couple of Jewish fellows, twenty somethings, with the bouquets of what looks like bamboo or palm. I know they are Jewish for they look Hasidic. They are wearing long black jackets, wide brim black fedora hats, and have curly sideburns. In truth, I classify all Jewish who dress like this as Hasidic although they may identify themselves differently. They are standing near the corner canvassing passersby.

Encyclopedia Brown Bear

At an age when other children decide to set up lemonade stands, Baby Bear decided to start a detective agency. His decision resulted from his experience in the Goldilocks home invasion. If you don't know this well-publicized crime case, Google Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Baby Bear wanted to become a policeman to help the other denizens of the Forest with their troubles and to maintain justice for all. Alas, the police did not accept children as applicants.

Baby Bear ran to his community library and borrowed the renowned guide, The Hardy Boys' Detective Handbook. Baby Bear spent the next twenty days, the library's lending period, studying the text. He chose the business name of "Encyclopedia Brown Bear Detective Agency" after his hero, Leroy "Encyclopedia” Brown. Baby Bear's dad hung the business sign across the garage door and opened a folding card table and four chairs in the entrance below.

On the first day, the Big Bad Wolf…
