Th' Soulfinger Diaries: Th' Upside of Racism

Ha! Ha!

So, th' last night of the casino gigs I'm out front talking to these two black dudes and this white lady comes up and starts congratulating them. She assumes since they're black they were in the band, you know? You guys were great. She's kind of into the bigger one, she's like man, you were awesome on th' drums.

It's like the most racist thing I've ever seen. So she goes and talks to someone else (probably apologizing to some Korean dude for Nagasaki) and I'm kind of ashamed but they're like, happens every day, man.

So I tell th' bigger guy if he wants to play the drum card to his advantage I'll be happy to back him up, and when the lady comes back over I'm like dude, you were ON tonight, man and he's like yeah, I was really feelin' it up there.

So they go off together. Righteous. I'm like are you going to tell her? Yeah, man. Tomorrow.

Sweent. So th' guy called me the other day and asked if our drummer gives lessons. Yeah, dammit.

Helpin' a brother get over.....that's why the words "Bobby", "Lightfoot" and "humanitarian" appear so often on the same marquee.....

Sounds like one of Neddie's Urban Myths. The NSA overheard the conversation and hired Linda Tripp to go over to the hotel to break up the party.

There's a "King of the Hill" episode where the Asian guy first moves in next door, and the redneck says to him - "Are you Japanese or Chinese?" He responds - "I'm from Laos you idiot. Laos." So the redneck goes - "Is that Japanese or Chinese?"

Man, can I relate to this. Just because I'm a drummer, everyone assumes I'm black.

It does help me get laid, though.
