“Oh Yeah Baltimore”

5 Apr

The other day at work some folks were discussing the winner of the Maryland mega million lottery. At the time of the convo all I knew was someone from B-more claimed to be the winner. One of my coworkers added that she cannot produce the ticket, which I found curious. Then I said oh yeah the “winner” is from Baltimore. And he said “oh yeah Baltimore,” implying an “oh that explains it.”

*Scooby Doo grunt*

So I countered in my normal opinionated, inquisitive fashion. Not that I am head-over-heels in love with the city of Baltimore, I just don’t feel it’s right to generalize an entire city and those that dwell there within. So she’s a friggin’ liar because she’s from North Baltimore?  Then the convo morphed into how cities are still so segregated and about how he has a black friend from his hometown in Cleveland who agrees with him, to which I responded “kudos.”


Just because you have a black friend gives no credence to your argument and furthermore that bamma might be a bloody idiot. Then he went on about how him and the black BFF were ridiculed because they were intermingling with a person of a different race.

How did we get here?

It was a whirlwind of a conversation which left me with a headache. I packed my shit and left.

And oh yeah he’s white and Jewish.
