just to be clear

One of my friends flew to Texas for a family visit. "Just remember not to be black," I told her.

In Texas, the police believe that 14 year old black girls in bikinis are more of a threat than armed bikers. If you are a biker at the scene of a mass killing, you can sit down and text your buddies while the police sort it out. If you are a black kid the the scene of a pool party where white people were yelling racist comments at you, well let's just say that it's hard to text when you are planted face down with a police officer kneeling on your back. This girl had a pool pass, by the way. But it didn't make up for being black.
