I'm a cracker

I needed a beer last week. Needed. It was a tough week and I could think of nothing better to do than guzzle a couple of cold ones. That sounds dirty. I stopped by the gas station next to my house to grab a 6-pack on the way to Steph’s. When I got to the register, the same black guy that has sold me beer for the past 6 months, asked me for my ID for the first time.

Me: Seriously? I am in here all the time. You don’t remember me?

He: You people all look the same.

It was just his ploy to get your name and address so he can google you and start stalking you...
At least I hope not!!

i wouldn't be surprised. black men love me. the other day, i was in the parking lot at the gym and a guy pulls up in a black Escalade with camouflage accents and gave me his number. he was wearing a camo vest with a fishnet shirt underneath and had christmas lights on his dashboard. i cannot think of a better example of someone i'd like to take home to mom and dad.

Speaking as a strong black female, I don't blame him. White people are sketchy.

I would be seen as a wheat cracker, since most of us halfbreeds look-taste the same. Too many innuendos there.

As one man of less distinct ethnicity said to me once, "Get off of my lawn, you wheat cracka´-ass-cracka´!
