The week before? I was in another location. I had run into a what i THOUGHT was a young black man.
Handsome, ex- college basketball player that never made the big league, funny, tall and energetic.
He immediately complimented me, on my looks, build, education, etc. He wouldn't stop.
He was from Chicago - and that's when we started making comparisons of the contrasting way black people act down here in NM.
This man LOVED black women, and was excited to see a black woman that travels, I was shocked.
He was so exuberant about life, people and culture.. He looked about 30 - maybe - but he was 52 years old!
When i left him, i felt there's hope for our black men
then i ran into that a** hole in the gym? and thought.. man, all hope is f&*&*king lost.
