Black and Blue: Not Funny
My blog is dedicated to advocating equality and equal justice for all. We are currently following the trial of police officer Betty Shelby who killed Terence Crutcher in Oklahoma.
A guy and a girl get ready to go on a blind date, both nervous and worried. The guy is hoping that his date won’t be fat and ugly. The girl is hoping she won’t be raped or killed.
That’s a joke I remember hearing when I was a teenager, laughing and thinking to myself, “How true.”
The other day I thought of one like it that I wanted to share.
A black kid and a white kid go to a gas station, both nervous and worried. The white kid is afraid his parents will find out he stole money from the coin jar and bought candy. The black kid is afraid a police officer will mistake his candy bar for a gun and shoot him.
Not funny? What? Did you laugh at the first one?
All right, I will try one more that I told the other day.
