Car Bopping

I have been guilty of this, I’m sorry to admit.

I’m a white guy who likes to sing and dance in his car. I’ve frozen up and stone-faced myself when pulling up next to a car of other white people.

I don’t know what I was afraid of. Looking like a fool? Getting car-jacked?

Racism exists on many levels. It doesn’t always mean a cross-burning.

I’m starting to realize how many of the fears I was taught from age zero until now were not my own. They were put in me. They’re not real.

Just keep dancing, dude.
