I have declared myself FREE from all vestiges of the "Post Traumatic Slavery Syndrome" that some Blacks cleave to as they seek to gain understanding of their present conditions.
The other day as I was eating a meal at a local restaurant I had these notions of my cleansing shattered.
As I was focused upon reading an article and chomping down my meal I heard the voice of a White man that admittedly rattled me a bit.
The voice said :
"If You Do That Again I Am Going To Whip You Boy!!!!"
He did not say "spank" or "punish" or "beat you with my belt".
He said WHIP!!
He said BOY!!
Now far be it for me to instigate a fight with a raging bull because I took a picture of his family but I had to sneak this one in because of the power that the scene had in drawing my attention. It fell short of making my heart race, as if I was the intended target though.
