  •  When I was in the second grade . . . . (5+ / 0-)

    (1955) I moved from Akron, Ohio to Orlando, Florida temporarily.  I was in the Jacksonville Airport, and I went to a drinking fountain.  As I was drinking, some older white creep came up and grabbed my arm so hard it hurt.

    He said:  Can't you read?

    I said:  What are you talking about?

    He pointed to a sign over the drinking fountain:

    Colored Only.

    Then my Mom showed up, told him to take his goddam hands off me, and reamed him a new one.

    But, hey, the Supreme Court says racism doesn't exist any more.

    Fiat justitia ruat caelum "Let justice be done though the heavens fall."
