  •  This reminds me of something I saw on PBS (6+ / 0-)

    They were interviewing a black man who lived through the civil rights era in the south.  He recounted a confrontation he had in a restaurant.  He was sitting at a table, eating some chicken.  The Civil Rights Act had just passed, so he was only newly allowed to eat at the restaurant.

    A redneck approaches him and says, "boy, if you don't get out of this restaurant right now, we're gonna do to you what you're doing to that chicken."

    So he picks up a piece of chicken, tells it how much he loves it, and gives it a big, sloppy kiss.

    Poor people look for work. Middle class people find a job. Rich people seek employment.
