Was This Guy Kkk?About three weeks ago I got lost walking in Brooklyn someplace after looking for a historical Jewish landmark I wanted to take a picture of.
It doesn't matter where I'm from but I'm a nice tanned color.
So I end up on a cross street and saw a bar. Being I was walking for miles i decided to have a cold beer as I walked in looking pretty good wearing a red and black rare shirt of a boxing celebrity under my nice black dress overcoat on a sunny but cold late afternoon.
To the left of the bar at the end was a pretty young Indian woman enjoying a drink by herself with a pleasant smile. The bartender seem like he didn't like my looks from jump street, must had been the Malcom X like clear glasses I was wearing. He told me with looks to kill to turn off my music because it was blasting. I was having a hard time finding my I pod in my jacket pocket because I had other stuff in there. He asked me twice to turn it off while trying to find it and there wasn't any music on at all in that red neck spot as the bartendender and his White customer in front of him stared me down.
So I turn pull out the stereo and turn it off asking a simple question finding that I wasn't in Brooklyn, I was lost in Queens. Then I politely asked him for a beer and he wanted to disrespect me with insulting slures and I was as kind as I always am in any public place. Finally i asked for a beer again and he said I needed to leave his bar. That pissed me off to say the least.
The young Indian girl was all ears and I knew she thought there was no reason for me not to get any service, so on my way out of the door I only had a few words to say to him while stepping out,
"A known filmmaker walks in lost and you're going to disrespect me like that? Fu@k you!"
Hey what can I say, I felt like he was some kind of KKK dude that didn't like me because my glasses reminded him of Malcom X. ;-)
