Don't matter if you're black or white

This grainy crap-tacular picture was taken at the NBA store.

The interesting thing about this was that the white guy on the left was kicking the shit out of the black guy on the right in this game. Normally, I wouldn't care and it's not even worth mentioning but the black gentleman was the recipient of constant derision from his friends and the issue of race came up.

His friends were arguing that because the gentleman on the right was 'black', he needed to play basketball well. I felt that this was offensive since it implied that white people can't play basketball and shouldn't play as well as black people.

Actually, I'm not offended and I didn't care. I needed something to write today and this is all I got.

Haha. I guess race commentary is your bread butter. Being in New York, you can never run out of material.

My go to topics are stories of the heart. Triumphs of the human spirit. And other myths.
