Said the President yesterday:

There are very few African American men who haven’t had the experience of walking across the street and hearing the locks click on the doors of cars. That happens to me — at least before I was a senator.

I have every reason to believe that this is true, sad commentary on life in these semi-United States that it is. However, I’m outsourcing my threat analysis to Roberta X:

Pedestrians: Statistically, unlikely to harm or rob you.

Men: Statistically, unlikely to harm or rob you.

African-Americans: Statistically, unlikely to harm or rob you.

U. S. Senators: Start the draft, start wars, create new regulations and raise taxes. And it’s always the intent of a majority of them — often, a supermajority. When you see a Senator, lock your damn door!

Behavioral adjustment in 3… 2… 1… complete.

    I’m not African-American, and I’ve had people lock their car doors when they’ve seen me on the corner. Was I profiled? You betcha.
