Racism: Still Alive and Kicking in Northern New Jersey

October 17, 2008

I am far from ultra-sensitive about race.  I find it to be one of the funnier things about people, and one of the easiest to mock.  I’ve heard the jokes about black men not being able to get cabs and remember the time when Danny Glover couldn’t get one, but I had never personally witnessed it until last night.

This is a copy of an email I sent to Jersey City Code Enfocement:

Hello #####,

As per our earlier conversation, I witnessed events at the cab stand at Journal Square in Jersey City that suggest to me that certain cab drivers may be refusing passengers based on race.

My girlfriend and I were lined up to take a cab home from the station (we live on Carlton, in the Heights district).  While the line turned into a bit of a cluster, the black gentleman two places ahead of us in line was refused by three different cabs, including #30, the one that picked us up.  I asked that the driver take the young man too, because he was also going to the Heights, but he declined, citing that he may get a ticket.

I understand that without direction from an official, cabs aren’t supposed to take on multiple fares, but several cabs were doing it.  And again, empty cabs were refusing to take this man, but accepting other fares.  The man was in his mid twenties and was wearing a yellow sweatshirt.

If it is possible to have an investigation opened to look into possible occurrences of racism at the cab stand, I would like that very much as my girlfriend and I found this event very troubling.  I look forward to hearing back from someone in your office regarding this issue.

Thank you,

Jon Anderson

This is two-thousand fucking eight and this shit still happens on a regular basis?  What a place we live in.

Vice Presidential Debate: The Drinking Game

October 2, 2008

While there appears to be a metric shit-ton of VP Debate drinking games floating around, I still wanted to contribute, so I took some of the best rules , threw in some of my own, and voila:

This game will require:

-Willingness on your part to get sloppy, retarded, ultra-turbo wasted during a VP debate.
-6 Pack of Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA (might be hard to find, but there should be some cases left over from September, if not, go with the 90 minute)[because the beer is from Delaware, get it?]*
-6 Pack of any Moosehead beer. (Because Sarah Palin likes to murder hunt moose)
-Cheap Vodka
-Jager, or something you can do shots of pretty well.
*These are really strong beers – 16-20% alcohol, be prepared to fuck up your Friday morning.

So the Dogfish is for Biden, the Moosehead is for Sally Governor Palin, or whatever.

Take a swig if either candidate says:

  • Change.
  • Washington.
  • Bush.
  • Blue-Collar.
  • Working Class.
  • Faith.
  • 9/11.
  • Bridge to nowhere.

Take a shot if either candidate tells a boldface lie that can be easily disproved in 5 or fewer mouse clicks.

Biden Rules:

  • If he starts to tell the story about taking the train home every night, don’t stop drinking ’til he finishes, or whenever your beer is done.
  • Take a hefty sip if he mentions Scranton, PA.
  • Take a sip if he mentions McCain, Take a sip from your neighbor’s beer if he mentions McCain as his friend or good friend.
  • Take a sip every time he chuckles condescendingly.
  • Take a shot if his toupee falls off.
  • Take a shot if he makes her cry.

Palin Rules:

Take a drink when she says:

  • Maverick
  • Hockey Mom
  • Thanks, but no thanks.
  • Mentions her family. Two sips if she mentions her husband by name. If she mentions her kids by name, take the number of sips corresponding to their number in the brood (1-Track, 2-Bristol, 3-Willow, 4-Piper, 5-Trig). Do a shot if she mentions that poor, dumb bastard Levi Johnson.
  • Take a shot if she mentions her son signing up for the Army on 9/11.
  • If Russia or Vladamir Putin are mentioned, take a shot of that vodka. (hell, make it a U-Boat, drop that shot of vodka into a short glass of orange soda) and then punch the person you’re sitting next to in the arm.
  • When she turns an honest question into a folksy story, don’t you dare put down that beer til she finishes!
  • If at any point you think that McCain/Palin are going to win, finish that lovely Canadian lager, crack open another one, and research how to become a citizen of that great land.

Also, check out Palin bingo:

Good luck, Joe!

UPDATE: If anyone mentions the word blink, like Palin saying, “You can’t blink…” No one is allowed to blink, the first person to do so must take another U-Boat.
