I'm actually amazed that so many people were surprised by it. It's just one of those things that happens when you're a black guy. No, that doesn't make it ok. But I guess I just don't find it surprising. I'm more surprised that it doesn't happen more often.

I guess that's kind of the thing.

If you are white, you can forget this kind of thing happens, because after all, it only gets called to your attention every so often. It never happens to _you_, only maybe to people you know, now and then.

Whereas if you are, say, Mr Black America, you are probably always aware that this kind of thing might happen to you at any time.

wow. I totally should have changed my name to "Mr. Black America"

then you could give those cops what for. "don't you know who I am? I am MR BLACK AMERICA."

well, I was born ignorant, too, but that doesn't mean I have to stay that way.

If he calls himself MR BLACK AMERICA, he is so getting Rodney Kinged next time.
