click your heels together three times!

yesterday i decided to get food stuffs from the bakery, & while i was there i over-heard the super-macho mister brooklyn guy who works there going off on what sounded like the most racist rant in the world (tm). it was crazy; he was half mumbling, to keep it on that side of the counter, you know? talking in the tone that means "you shouldn't be able to hear this even though you can" that some people adopt when they are going to say inappropriate things. it went something like:

"i just hate their fucking kind, hate how they move here & then after they live here for like a year they start pretending like they belong here. you don't belong here! you ain't part of new york. why don't you go back where you came from! we don't need your type here. they're just a fucking bunch of freeloaders. i can't stand them. we should've never let them come up from the south. seriously, they should have to go back south & stay there. yeah, i just fucking hate the clintons."

it was magical & i cracked up laughing. i had been a little shocked-- i mean, i've gone into the bakery a million times & that guy has always seemed pretty stand-up. then again, in neighborhoods like this, the options are either tolerance or secret resentment, so i wasn't so much surprised as a little dissapointed. then that clinton thing pulled out & it just blew my mind. fucking hilarious. so that was pretty great.
