Summer Lovin' Torture Party
Not sure that this has anything to do with race, but I went shooting with a friend (who's black) today in a small town not too far from here, and we found the remains of a building (just pillars). Looked pretty cool, and it was in an open area next to a house and an apartment complex. Absolutely no "No Trespassing" signs or anything. Well, first we noticed graffiti that said, "FUCK NIGERS [sic]," and we turned to each other and thought that maybe we weren't in the best area, but we continued to snap photos. All of a sudden, some guy opens the door to his deck and stands watching us for a minute, and then decides to start screaming at us to "GET OUT, YOU'S TRESPASSING" and then his wife joined him and started screaming, "GEEETTTT OUTTTAAAAA HEEEE.'" Almost started shooting photos of them but decided not to start trouble.
Not sure if that had anything to do with race, but I thought I'd share. Place was a hellhole--confederate flags everywhere, people staring as down from trucks, etc. Honestly never felt more uncomfortable in my life.
