black – characterized by absence of light; enveloped in darkness.

white – a mixture of wavelengths of various colors; perceived as colorless.

blues – a form of music, imported by blacks, co-opted by whites, paying plenty of green.

Just because he was capable of playing the most psychedelic blues heard this side of Jupiter’s moons doesn’t mean he was willing to be anyone’s nigger.

About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
