This isnt really a "Bozo" email, so relax, but there are parallels yes.
But anyway, on Pinked In, a lady just shared some unbelievable video of a white dude (big beefy gorilla sort, sort of like he was in the Marines or something (physical build and voice etc)) harassing a black dude (a funny looking tiny little guy) and tellin ghim to "walk out of the neighborhood because he didnt want people like that there" (or his wife didnt, apparently, by the yelling going on in the background).
Now, for reference, this black dude was part of an interracial family where lady is black, husband is white, and after all this happened they were found to be in violation of their housing contract for some inane God forsaken reason, and the president of the housing association complained about "people looking different coming in an out of your house" or some wacko stuff.
Clearly these people were BOZOS of the highest order.
Lady took it to the powers that be.
Good on her!
And "President of the HOA" or what not got canned promptly and I'm sure apologies etc were forthcoming, much as in the infamous Delhi Police VS Rahul Mookerjee case in 2009 ... (in that case, kudos to the wife for sticking it out in court alongside me) (and being brave enough to GO to court in first place).
But anyway, black dude at no point challenged the other guy, tho he could have, at least verbally.
He was polite as ever!
And of course, won later.
Classic example of "lose the battle, win the war" (and given the dude is in the Army apparently, a Seargant of all things and the military is doing ALL it can to stamp out such things - well - I'm sure his higher ups would have given him an earful!).
But it brings to mind 2000, when I watched the Bourne Identity in a movie theater with my girlfriend.
Had to take a leak in the middle of the movie.
Walked down the aisle, and politely asked black dude sitting there to move his feet so I could "walk" out of the aisle.
He glowered at me.
Being the great guy I am I ignored his glower and walked over his feet anyway, since he wasn't moving.
I didnt walk ON them, but damn near happened, I mean, think about it, darkened movie theater and all that ...
After the movie, we saw him again with an older black lady, who looked the other way.
"What are you looking at" black dude yelled at me.
Huh, I thought.
I stared at him. Not saying a word.
Soon, he left, and so did we.
I remember a white couple that were in the theater with us watching the same movie telling me later ... "You should have asked him "or what else"".
In other words, she was saying I should have told him "I was looking at him and to stop acting like an ass, and what he'd do about it" and what not ...
Then before I went up to NY, I remember a prime "Gorilla" - this was the biggest nutjob of the lot here hollering up a storm outside the Jim about how "we dont want ragheads in the US!"
I stared at him, and almost burst out laughing, it was so stupid, I didnt even feel offended inititally.
"What are you staring at", dude hollered.
Then he made off to the JIm to pump and tone.
My friend was pissed . Big time. So much so that we made it to campus police with a complaint, but being I was going to NY the next day, I didnt file formal charges.
(personally, I could care less)
Cop went into the JIm and then no doubt gave him an earful.
My point being, in both these cases?
Wait and watch. Hehe.
If either one of those two guys had escalated, I'd have done so too, and probably in a far more brutal manner.
Until then though, I've always figured, hide your strengths and bide thy time ..
Same thing with life, and fitness.
The blowhards usually blow up a storm, but when push comes to shove, they are NOWHERE to be seen .
With fitness, same thing.
People talk a big game, but end of the day, results?
A lot of times, you'll see the belly hasn't reduced one bit, and neither have the strength levels gone up any ...
(and neither have the phat phocks who deride pullups as being easy and "we can't do them because were big, not fat" do them either).
Moral of the story being, if you gotta bluster, be ready to back your talk up, and be sure you're in the right first.
Else, you'll just end up looking like an ape, goon, buffoon or something equally hilarious.
Bozos of colors, as you can see, hehe, and creeds too!
And, plenty of ways to react ...
Anyway, I'm out.
Pick up the Rolls Royce of Fitness right HERE.
PS - This reminds me of the "1000 yard stare" Rambo does to the SAS guy in Rambo IV, hehe, which pisses the latter off no end "I've seen it all before"!
