A Little Salt on Top

Used to go to yoga on Monday nights but Monday has turned into the day that I exercise at home then stay put so that I can do chores, gather myself, whatever...

Found a recipe for chickpea burgers and made some on Sunday. I'll have to tweak the recipe because they were totally bland. Probably would have tasted better with red onion on top but I didn't feel like making a trip to the store just for one item. After putting ketchup and a little salt on top, it tasted pretty good. Didn't feel bad about adding salt because I made them with organic garbanzo beans without salt....

One of my New York friends used to jokingly ask me how things were going in Missouriery. It's not feeling like a joke anymore after Mike Brown, Kajieme Powell and Vonderrit Myers.

In addition to the shootings a Bosnian-American, Zemir Begic, was killed by four teenagers (mostly Black) who used a hammer as a weapon.

I was recently told, by the 'Fugee, of a Bosnian woman who was the victim of a hate crime. The story sounded too convenient but still...

Today we found out that the story is a hoax.

I immediately thought of Susan Smith and how some refugees and immigrants fear Black people but I couldn't muster an ounce of indignation because Seherzada Dzanic didn't kill anyone.


  1. I'm sorry things are so bad in St. Louis. I guess they're bad everywhere, it's just coming to a head in that one city. Your New York friend can't really make those jokes anymore after Eric Garner...

  2. Things are bad in a lot of places but, boy, have we earned our spot on the list of most dangerous cities. I'm hoping that the tide turns soon.
