Exploring South

North Carolina State Flag (Asheville, NC)

In honor of my recent family trip to the ATL and to Asheville, North Carolina I thought I’d post this video by the Kings of Leon. Yes I like them and it upsets me that Caleb Followill married — absolutely tragic.

ATL reminded me a lot of of the DMV (where are the black men?) and Asheville is always refreshing, just wished there were more us black folks down there. I guess I’m spoiled growing up in Prince George’s County and all. Seventeen percent of the city’s 83,383 population is black which translates to 14,175 of us. Next year I want to check out the city’s Goombay Festival — apparently that’s when all the black folks come out. It is a festival of our own. Check out Asheville — you’ll love the mountain air. Perhaps I shall retire there and live the sweet life like my Aunt Sallie aka the Silver Fox.
