If anyone happened to be at Taste of Colorado last night, you probably saw me but didn’t know it *L*
I do have to rant a little about the event, however… First off, the security was moronic. At the entrance was basically two Middle Eastern dudes who’s first words as I walked up with my group was, “Purses!! We need to check your purses!” to the two females of the group. I was then told, “Okay. Do you have any guns and knives on you, if not, come on in.”
Yes, that was all in one sentence. I didn’t show a badge, I didn’t say I was a cop.
I walked right in fully armed (including a three inch flip knife not hidden on my pocket) and my cousin had his knife. I was a little more than “humored” at this. My other cousin and his girlfriend didn’t know I came armed and when I told them, they started laughing. My aunt stated she started showing him her purse and the guy told her, “No, that’s okay. I believe you, come on in.” In the course of thirty minutes I saw six pistols and only two of those were on cops. The other four were on black gang-banging-pieces-of-shit. A lot of knives on retarded rednecks as well.
Secondly, when I start to go into a place like “A Taste of Colorado”, I don’t want to be jumped by your political views, regardless of side. What makes it worse is the fact that how they were presenting how great it would be. They were selling t-shirts and paintings which showed Obama in familiar pose right next to(are you ready for this) Che Guevara. The messages were different on each one, but they all had the word Hope and Revolution on it. Several of them said “Revolution for Hope and Change!” To me, that really just kind of says it all for the trash.
As if that wasn’t enough, most of the time we would pass one of those supporters, they were arguing with someone! Not over political views, no! They were arguing about trivial shit. “What, mother fucka! You just gna do me like dat?! I said the water only a dolla! Wer you from they treat peeps like that?! SHIT!”
Yes…I typed it as phonetically as I could to mimic the way they said it. No, they didn’t have Haitian accents or anything like that, these were Americans. Don’t let me forget to mention the CONSTANT shouting of “nigger/nigga” throughout the event…not by white people.
I really hate being in LoDo after 11:30…but that’s another topic.
