I am African American, I Only Came Here to Shop.

In New York City, my hometown, Macys and Barney’s are in the proverbial kennel, I mean doghouse for profiling African-American shoppers.

I thought of writing this, because I saw the story on Erin Burnett about Chris Brown being arrested again for violence.  Is Chris Brown getting a free pass, because he’s an entertainer?  Doesn’t that create a level of racism saying; “Oh, that’s what they are like anyway.”  I guess the person he and his goon beat up was African-American, so no race angle.  How long will it be, before Chris Brown gets free passes all the way to going too far and murdering someone?  At least THAT will get more attention than the kids being gunned down in places, such as Chicago’s poor neighborhoods.

So now, we have respectable people, African-Americans living by the rules and my capitalism, spending their earned money in high level stores and getting in trouble for it?

I guess having an African-American President has not helped that any.  At least he is recognizable.  Otherwise, could you imagine it.  “I am the President of the United States!”  “Yeah right, as he is carted away.  I am being silly and tongue and cheek, but the incidents in question are not funny at all.

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
