This is yet another in my series titled "The Creative Use Of Bullet Proof Glass In Da Hood"
This is the one picture that came out clear enough for me to show due to the darkness from the night time.
THIS looks like a picture of a bank - right?
You see the drawer that slides out to transact money. There is a think piece of glass that is in front of you despite the fact that you can't see it. We can't be too careful when it comes to safety with bank tellers.
Well this AIN'T a bank. This is a picture of the security mechanisms in place at the McDonalds on Cleveland Avenue in Atlanta.
The cash window and the food handling window both have bullet proof glass and make use of a drawer through which business is transacted through.
You know things are bad when this has to be implemented in a McDonalds.
Now that I think about it - I should drive back through to see if the inside cashiers also are behind glass?
This is yet another in the series "Racism That Did Not Happen".
What you see is a picture of a "Klan boy" with a Confederate flag plastered to the back of his jeans jacket. Alright - he is not in the Klan but there would be a good chance that he would be if this were 1939 instead of 2009.
He clearly is friends with this Black assistant manager in this particular grocery store.
They were talking, face to face for no less than 15 minutes. The "would be Klan boy" was detailing some recent rock concert or music show that he attended. The Black assistant manager listened with great interest.
There was no apprehension between either of them.
The rebel flag that was on the back of the "would be Klan boy" was of no issue in regards to their relationship.
Indeed the Confederate flag is a symbol of hatred to some and a symbol of pride to others. It is incumbent upon those who take pride in it to STOP the haters from making use of this system for their own perverted, hate-filled purposes.
Just as many Americans ask the American Muslims to renounce the violence executed by their Muslim brothers in the name of Islam so is the need for the "Heritage Not Hatred" people to speak out against their brothers who do so.
Here is a picture of the gas pump that is in question.
Last Saturday I pulled into a gas station in a conservative, Republican controlled city in the metro area. I attempted to use my debt card to fill up my car with gasoline.
The machine did not process my card, telling me to "See The Cashier". I tried a different card - same result.
I then walked inside of the store to inquire about the problem. The woman told me that they are having problems authorizing at the pump.
She then asked me "How much do you need". I hesitated because I was thinking of the current price of gas as compared to the amount of gas my car takes. Then she told me - "Just go ahead and pump and then come back in and pay.".
I AM A BLACK MAN!!!!! Why would this White woman in this conservative Republican town TRUST ME? Why didn't she "racially profile me", demanding that I leave my drivers license or at least my iPhone with her as collateral in case I decide to drive away?
To be honest with you - I almost did drive away. I am so used to pre-paying at the pump with my debt card and the rolling. I had to remember to go back inside to pay.
This White woman in this conservative Republican town then took my card and charged me for the gasoline that I had purchased.
No racism. No racial profiling.

Minister Louis Farrakhan’s views on T.I.’s situation:
“T.I. was set up and they are trying with Lil’ Wayne.”
All of this is puzzling to me. Muslim Minister Louis Farrakhan is seen with:
- Super Head - The Big Time Freak
- Snoop Dogg - Pimp Supreme - Invited As Guest Of Honor
- Michael Jackson - Never Commenting About His Racial Morphing
Yet Min Farrakhan is good for attacking certain right wing or Zionist figures, making the case that they are a threat to the Black community. I don't understand this.

Plies And Jamie Fox On The Video Shoot
Plies has become popular for his radio friendly hits targeting the ladies, but if you've heard some of his non-radio music, you know the Florida rapper spits tales of a rugged street background where being a gangster is the only way of life.
But, like most rappers, his credibility has come into question at times.
During a recent broadcast of his Foxxhole radio show on Sirius Satellite, actor/singer Jamie Foxx detailed an incident where Plies hid when "30 real n****s" came onto their video set.
According to Foxx, he disfused the situation before anything could happen, but afterward, Plies was nowhere to be found.
"After we calmed the situation, I shook 30 hands. Aight n****, aight cool, you too. ..." the actor explained. "[Backstage, they] telling me 'Foxx, I think you should stay back here'. I'm not trying to stay back here in this dressing room. I'm finna stay out, I'm not staying back here. I get out there, and we can't find Plies. I understand why. You know why? He was afraid for his life. You never know, he could'a died. He ran to the bathroom."
Foxx said that the men were upset at the persona rappers like Plies portray in their music, and they were there to see he was the person he talks about in his music. So, Foxx confronted them to calm things down.
"30 real n****s came on the set," he said. "It was 30 t-shirts ... I look up -- since I been in L.A. for 23 years, I say 'Ok, I know what I gotta do. I gotta go over there and meet it head on. I can't let it get outta control.' I'm not trying to be no hero, but let me at least talk to whoever the f*** this is.
"The dude was like 'Yo n****, these n****s is faking our lives Foxx.' I said 'Who are you talking about?' [He's like] 'These punk ass n****s running from Suge and...' I'm like 'Hey, we just shooting a video.' "
Confused, Foxx asked his friend the men had so much animosity towards the rapper. He explained he hadn't heard Plies' music outside his radio hits, to which his friend Tasha threw on some street cuts for him to listen to.
After that, he understood.
"My girl Tasha asked me, 'You never heard Plies music?' I said 'Nah, put it on,' " Foxx said. "I said 'You got to be kidding me.' He's talking about killing and goon this and kill that. That's what these dudes was listening to. They wanna find out: is the dude really real, because we gonna kill him."
