With the MLK holiday, Tom Joyner and his crew coming to town and Obama's speach-a-fying... Some within this racially segregated community are reaching across traditional barriers in an effort to combat discrimination predicated on ones race.
My club, while mostly Black, is a friendly spot where everyone is welcome.
My crowd runs from gay, white couples to face-tattooed, gold toothed, dope-boys and their THOTs...
My club, it is said, is the first Black-owned nightclub that 'respectable' white people want to patronize.
Because of this, I have been asked by a group of white lawyers, politicians and businessmen to act as a bridge between many disparate groups and organizations.
In all honesty - I don't have time for racism. I have better things to do.
I have never been a victim of racism - only 'attempted racism'.
Most people, regardless of race, can do nothing to nor for me.
I'm not sure what purpose I would serve on such a well meaning commission.
