Undercover Racists or Misguided Consumer?

I'm the type of person where something will happen and then three days later I'll come up with the perfect comeback or response. I use this example to segue into the profile of delayed responders. I'm that girl. You might do something to piss me off but it takes me three days to figure out I'm pissed off about it. Anyways, I think a couple of posts ago I wrote about this awesome used bookstore I found in Roseville. It didn't dawn upon me until recently that maybe the Hitler photos displayed prominently in the windows could indicate an anti-Semitic philosophy. ( I know.... Captain Obvious, right?) Then I start racking my brain and I remember going to a very well known tattoo shop here in town (for my daughter's nose piercing) and seeing another Hitler photo on the back of their promotional flyers/business cards. So I'm thinking ....hmmmm, racist much? Here's the photo:


So the blackened face of the General in the back ( I don't know if he's a General or not...) and the laughing face of Hitler, as if Hitler was just some swell guy....

The other day my daughter was walking to the local store and a truck pulling into our neighborhood screamed "Nigger!" at her. 

What year do we live in? Am I being too sensitive? This stuff really bothers me. I always tout about how progressive Roseville is but I feel like the wool has been pulled over my eyes (once again). I've always hated racism in all its ugly forms. 

I know I will never step foot into those two business establishments again.

Black Ice Avoidance

BLACK ICE AVOIDANCE Winter driving is tough enough without the worry of black ice. Roads covered in snow are challenging, but on most drives we can know what we are dealing with. Black ice, however, is invisible and often appears where it is least expected.
Black ice is not, as the name might suggest, actually black. Although called black, it is its transparency that permits it to blend into the road pavement no matter the type, whether asphalt, concrete or other. It forms when light rain or fog encounters a road surface whose temperature is at or below freezing. Black ice can form suddenly, so it is important to know how to prepare for, detect and handle this type of condition. The big danger behind black ice is that it is very hard to spot. Most people drive right over it, not knowing that it is any different than regular pavement until their vehicle loses traction. IF you were to spot black ice, you would look for very shiny smooth sheets that look like wet, glossy, pavement. Whene…

Trinidad's Letter

Dear Son,
I know you may not know it, but one day this pain you will remember. It's hard for you to understand now but because of it you will be a better man. You will remember all the missed birthdays, all the missed Christmas mornings. You will remember the times you looked at the little boys in the park playing basketball with their dads. And because it hurts now it will propel you to be a good man. I see it in you now. How compassionate you are to others. How friendly you are and always wanting to make sure that everyone gets a turn. For you have known the struggle of life not being fair and in your own little world you try every day to make it better for the next person. Even though the person you have missed the most left you waiting and waiting and waiting. I've seen you process this struggle of balancing sadness and glee; of wanting to be angry and yet yearning so much for just a call. I've seen you shrug it off willing to accept the things you can not change and ye…
