It's hard being a black anything including black insects. A black ant crawls across the floor here, and it's ON!!!! A black spider or spider of any color, it's mental institution.
I only had one black teacher the whole time I was in school. He was from the south. If anything got a little disconcerting, he'd refer to us as "Hey, boy; Hey, girl!" That was strange as hell to me 'cause my family had the YT speech patterns down to a science. On the phone we were and still are YT-ized; talking to us you HAVE NO CLUE. Took awhile to get adjusted. He stayed here and after a time became a respected man and an accepted man. This was before the "Civil Rights Movement", before most of you were probably born. It's changed now as has the world.
On second thought, I digress, it really HASN'T changed that much; the actors have been replaced but the beat and the story still meanders along.
