How the Institutional Racism of Yesterday Still Reverberates Today
Hi Blazers fans.
After the game, during which you've been sitting on your ass eating nachos and guzzling beers, how about taking a walk up to Lloyd Center to get your car instead of clogging up the Max? Because here's the deal: some of the ride the train from our houses to the games. And after the game, I can't get onto the first train that comes by because your fat ass insists on standing right by the door when you're 'only going a few stops'. Guess what- if you're only going a few stops, then fucking walk! Lloyd Center is a whopping 10 blocks from the Rose Garden. It's WALKING DISTANCE! And for the rest of you lazy bums who can't even walk the 5 blocks to 7th avenue- you're embarrassing yourself when you take a crowded train two short stops. Let the rest of us- those who actually pay for transit passes- get onto the train. From the looks of it, you could really use a walk anyway.
