Keep it alive, my friend.

That was my thought as well. For a small town hick, I would definitely use something like this. Well, I would, but if it kept me from going to an area where I saw a black person, I'd go anyway just to prove how enlightened I am.

I'm sure that the multiple scars from broken beer bottle encounters, the gang patches, & the full-on facial tattoo had nothing to do with it.

Now, if you looked like Paul Kersey, it would be game on.

Maybe it's because you look homeless.
