Patience with racism, genocide, and the lies that have turned into 'The Big Lie' is admirable. I mean admirable in the recipients of the hate that the 'Big Lie(s)' have concocted for generations in this country and the lies get old sometimes for some people. Thus the truth running thru this mind.

I almost died today because I refuted someone's notion that my color means I'm stupid and old meant vulnerable. I fought back verbally and the hate of the person I was engaged with almost spilled over into violence. It is mean out here. I was prepared to do what I must to let the idiot know he was in a fight. I wanted an ear, an eye... But was helped by 3 women. The aggressor backed off. And the women were truly concerned about the old man that I am. Simple parking lot altercation when I asked why so close to me with your car? He stopped, jumped out, and started toward me. I thanked my angels of mercy, forgot about shopping, and left. He would have f***** me up. I did not give up ground though.

Yet this openness is interesting in speaking about "fantasy" and metaphor coming from a person of color...just because.

1. You have my respect. If everyone reacted in the way you did, fewer would have to contend with

the parking lot commandos.

I have been where you just were. You should be proud of yourself.

3. yep, one of the "commandos"

luv it...and you know what I was contending with driving home. The first time in my life I did not look left, right then left again. Left out the third left look and a white SUV almost t-boned me there. Angels of mercy again I guess. My hat is off to you...

6. I'm glad you had an angel on your shoulder today.

There are too many evil people looking for a fight, and picking on an elder shows that they are really cowards.

Take care of yourself!
