And this is not a good wow by any means. I haven't been really paying much attention to politics. And by that I mean, I don't engage myself in conversations about politics with co-workers, family, or friends. I know who I'm voting for. I know why I'm voting for him. And I'm fine with that. I don't need to try to convince people to vote the way I'm gonna vote. That's not my deal.
Today, though, something kind of woke me up.
A friend told me that they saw a pickup truck in Sunbury (a rather small rural community) with a sign (made from a cardboard pizza round) in the window that said "Be a man who's bigger, don't vote for the n***er"
(only they left the letters in place of where I had the asterisks).
Um. Really? It IS 2008, right? Are people STILL so near sighted? Seriously? That just perplexes me. I'm just naive, I guess. But are you really going to tell me that this rednec f**k doesn't have any Charlie Pride in his 8-track collection?
It's just ignorant and sad.
I seriously hope he gets pulled over by two African American cops.
I've got two words if that happens: Cavity Search.
