Macy's is a status indicator? Really? I always thought it was a generic department store for the masses. I thought places like Saks and Barney's were the status stores.

America: Consistently on the Wrong Side of Civil Rights History?

I'm never surprised when the US has an unfavorable opinion of black people. We are the lowest of the low to most Americans, so of course we would never be sympathized or empathized with.

When it comes to Maryland/DC/VA, you have to really break it down far beyond geographic lines. I'm black, grew up nearly most of my life in PG and MoCo and I can tell you that black people in the DC area know all about grits and every other kind of Southern food. That goes for my friends and family born and raised… » 7/29/14 12:24pm 7/29/14 12:24pm
