I’m trying to be all healthy and active and whatnot

I Read A Lot of Internets

Awesome way to start my weekend

I took the bus home tonight and while I was walking through downtown to catch my second bus, I passed by a guy who was blaring white power music from his car. The song was to the tune of “Glory, Glory Hallelujah,” and the chorus was something about the white man marching on. I’m fairly certain that’s on some White Power Greatest Hits compilation since it was featured in American History X and I’m fairly certain I heard it on some When Rural Skinheads Attack! type show on the Discovery Channel or some shit.

I looked over in surprise when I heard it and the guy and I made eye contact. He sneered at me. And I was totally intimidated by his defiance (not).

  • He and my new ridiculous neighbor (also a skinhead) should totally get together and give each other pedicures.
    Or suck on a fucking tailpipe in the garage. Whichever.

  • I totally know what song you’re talking about (not because I’m White Power Mom or anything but from American History X).

    I can’t believe someone would have the nerve to blare it in their car, though. It’s like begging people to throw shit at you.

  • ooh a skinhead neighbor! Amber, you lucky duck! here’s to hoping there aren’t daily fistfights. 😉

  • the dumbest thing about it was that we were in downtown and that’s not the whitest area of town, especially during the day. not by a long shot. even if it was, people in Pittsburgh wouldn’t put up with that nonsense. I wanted to tell him, “Sneering and being obnoxious is all you’re getting away with, bubba, and I hope you know it,” but I didn’t feel like provoking him.

  • Ok… Geeking out moment! PITTSBURGH!! Oh how I miss you! (I grew up in Monroeville and Dad used to do reasearch at Univ of Pitts)

    Sounds like things have… changed there… in the last… yanno… 25 years lol.

  • I am under strict orders from Sweetney to bring around the proverbial welcome wagon. Welcome to the neighbourhood!

  • It has been my experience that the people who defiantly whistle bigoted songs (as though to insinuate that we should all feel the way they do) are the same kind of people who think Bill O’Reilly is a modern day prophet and usually have FOX News playing on every television in the house…24/7. You know…morons.

  • I have a neighbor who drives around one of those pick-up trucks with the huge wheels and he flies this ginormous confederate flag out of the back of it. He also likes to round the corner fast and give dirty stares. I pretty sure that my husband could snap him in half only using one arm. Trash.

    I wasn’t there, so i can’t be sure, but i have a distinct feeling that the only thing on this particular Nobel Prize Winner’s TV are reruns of “Cops” so he can record his brother Cletus’ “appearance”.

    Whoo, the look on Aunt-Mom Durleen’s face when she told them po-lice off was sum’in, I tell you.
