Beneath the Surface.



I told y'all that history repeats itself. All you gotta do is look. It's right there. Below the surface. The greatest trick supremacy ever pulled, was convincing the world it didn't exist.

It's here. It shows its head once in a while. It makes a couple of headlines, people feign shock, and the world as we know it continues. Don't get it twisted. It's ALWAYS there. We just remember the Mel Gibsons, the Stroms Thurmonds, and the Kramers.
What about the neighbors, the bankers, the grocers, the painters, the doctors? What about YOU?

It's MORE than entertainment. We got a rare glimpse of the inner-psyche of an American white male (yeah, I know, this isn't a fair representation of EVERYONE...it's my blog.) Are we gonna write this off as one of those"Krazy Kooky Kramer (AKA the KKK) antics? Are we just gonna shrug our shoulders and move on?



It's more than entertainment. Is he hungry or is he a looter? Is he a teenager or is he a thug? Is he an Afro-American or is he an American? Is it urban clothing or a culture? Is it a term of endearment? Can I use THAT word? YOU be the judge. On a personal note, these moments are why the South has got it good: Confederate flags make it easy to spot the enemy. I know where I stand. You think you know where I stand. We go on with our day.
