I was in the Dupont Circle Chipotle on Monday, 03 November, where I also used the bathroom. It was a clean bathroom.
I was in the Dupont Circle Chipotle today, 05 November, where I used the bathroom again. And this is what I saw.
First is an outgoing message to our current President, "Good Bye George W. Bush!!! and take your Damn Mexican Slaves with you!"
Next is presumably another outgoing message to our current President, "Go Back To Texas Bitch!!!"
Next is a shiny bit of patriotism, "This is U.S.A.!!!"
And finally is my favorite, written on the door, "Fuck yall white Mothafucka's!"
One day after the election. Several months after Barack Obama's famous speech on race. Now I'm not naïve. It's been forty years since the civil rights movement and black and white still can't seem to get along very well. But if this country has bought the ideas of "hope" and "change", well dammit ... get over it, move on, and grow up. Because, if this election has proven anything it's that race is no longer a barrier.
Get over it. Move on. Grow up.
