Aren't young black men advised by their parents and so on never to run because people will assume they're up to no good because they're black and running? I think I saw something on the news recently where our Attorney General for cryin' out loud said he had to give that talk to his own son.

I'm not even black and I've had people look at me sideways and ask me to stop because I was running somewhere. And no, I wasn't doing anything illegal. I can only imagine what it would have been like if I'd been black or brown.
