Re: Grinding Black: Racism in Poker- Inspired from New York Times best selling novel, Black Lik

reminds me of a good line i heard last night at my local room.

dispute over someone trying to buy chips from a big stack
floor lady: "sir you cannot give another player chips for cash, you can only color up."
big stack: (shocked) I dont want to color up, I'm already black!!!
floor lady:

maybe you had to be there for the delivery but it got everyone

Yes. Really.

I am not a serious person. But I once made a serious post, my first ever, in BBV before reading the sticky. I, too, was told to EAD. It reminded me of the time a former co-worker of mine told me that he once visited the zoo when was just 8 or 9 years old. He was Mexican-American, like me; he had light skin and blue eyes. They came to the gorilla exhibit. He saw the alpha silver back gorilla sitting at the top of the rocks. With his gorilla boobs sitting firmly over his gorilla beer-belly, he overlooked the rest and could see the human crowds. The boy met eyes with the alpha and eagerly waved, smiling, the way a kid would wave to familiar relative. All the gorilla did was lift his fist and extend his enormous middle finger. The kid, who was now a man, had been crushed.

If OP made a real post, this was the wrong place to do it, and a gigantic middle finger got to him from all sides of the internet, just like that little boy.
