We arrived at the market early today. My son and I simply woke up early so we decided to get things set up early and then relax a while before the people showed up. Around 6:30 we had everything unloaded and then we heard someone about a block away singing at the top of his lungs. It was actually more like a cross between yelling and singing. I can't write here exactly what the man was singing but I will tell you that it went something like this: Noooooo moreeeeeeeee N's. followed by I hate N's. We are all adults here and I am sure you all know what he was saying.
Imagine my surprise when this man reached the market and I found out it was an older black man. Now I live in the south and hearing the N word isn't that rare but hearing it coming from a black man that isn't a rapper is a little strange. But wait that isn't the strangest part. Get this now. This man was dressed in a hot pink dress. I am not lying here. After he reached the market he got right in the market directors face and sang his song to her. She politely told him that she was having a conversation so he left but continued singing his song.
On his way through the market he called several other black men N's and once almost started a fight. Ok now I want you all to bring in your kids and have them see this for themselves. This is why you should never do crack.
Sorry about the quality but I was trying to get the photo quickly without getting caught. And you know the worst part. Get this girls. He had on black flip flops. Ewwwwwww. No fashion sense at all. Where are the fashion police when you need them? And speaking of police. I guess after the commotion, someone called the police because one stayed in the market all day.
We had a lousy day though. Sales were way down due to the economy I guess. I am sure all will be well by next week.
Have a great Sunday,
