I was doing my daily headline scan and newsletter reading, you know, the stuff we who still have some kinda brain do. I really enjoy doing this as I am info junkie and I will read just about anything.
Anyway, MSN is my home page because I like the way it’s formatted and mainly I’m just used to it. I don’t take kindly to change so, yeah. I was over at MSN doing what I do when came across an interesting piece on the superrich. I guess regular rich won’t cut it anymore; just when I was on my way to being rich they flip it on me. So the article went on about how they have these towns were rich people live and play and spend obscene amounts of money on shit that will not help one other person accept another rich person. Things like yachts and cars and drugs no doubt (I added the drugs part). They had stock photos to accompany each town they talked about. So I’m just clicking away and cursing all of them straight to hell until I came across this photo:
I did a quick scan and saw the usual suspects, and as I was about to click and move on something caught my eye. This photo to me is a microcosm of this country and probably the world. What did I see you ask? Look to the far left corner of the room, do you see him? Yes. The only Black face in the room that we can see, and he’s there to shovel shit. James Baldwin would have a field day on this one.
