Happy Friday!



I used to live in a very white college town that made me feel like this. I swear, I would see somebody on the sidewalk on the opposite side of the street a full block down. I'd run to the curb and raise my hand, waving frantically as if to say, "HEY, I'm here!!!! I"m here!!! I see you!!! I'm here!!!"

I don't remember a time when the black person didn't look up and smile, just as excited as I was.

That's when you know it's time to either import some black folk on your own or move.
