I told George over the phone earlier about my bout with racism today.
"Aw shit," George replied. "See? There is a difference between black people and niggas. Niggas will steal yo shit in a heartbeat. I would be suspicious too! That son of a bitch would be a nigga if he didn't have a car or had a stolen one. Niggas love to talk on cellphones, too. Always scheming and shit. Trying to steal yo valuables."
I laughed. I shouldn't have, but it struck me as funny. George can be so candid with me sometimes. It can surprise me. And he can get away with saying stuff like that being a black man. I feel better, but it still worried me.
