I have worked and lived with ( Try living on a tug boat, for months at a time with anyone and 'lived with' takes on a whole new meaning ) blacks from all over the world. Central and South America - Europe - Africa - African America - Caribbean American blacks are universally Loathed by non American blacks The N-Word applies to ONLY American blacks. Weather you say it out loud or just think it, it fits like a glove. Ask Any foreign black.

Hmmmmm !

I worked a notch-barge hauling cement from Revena NY to various East Coast ports. Norfolk among them.

We were working the barges that Moran worked before the Masters, Mates & Pilots went on strike. 1980

Even though we weren't touching their boats, they took a dim view of us. lololol

I was used to piloting large oil rigs and such on the Mississippi, but when I encountered my first ship, a hundred mile up the Narrow Hudson River, it was Pucker Time.

I've docked a cement barge that came into Norfolk many times, the Blue Circle one... our strike was the one in '86 it was really a lockout and not a strike, ruined a lot of lives, I've handled pretty much everything from rowboats to aircraft carriers and had a ball doing it as I'm sure you have..tough work, but a great's a small world shipmate.

Geee... and what could be the reason(s) ??
If you are sick and tired of seeing politicians and others playing the race card, or if you are just disgusted with the grossly dishonest way racial issues in general are portrayed, then you should get a copy of Ann Coulter's new book, "Mugged." Its subtitle is: "Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama."

Few things are as rare as an honest book about race. This is one of the very few, and one of the very best.

Many people will learn for the first time from Ann Coulter's book how a drunken hoodlum and ex-convict, who tried to attack the police, was...
