I was given multiple reports of a hobo approaching random teams during our first break, sitting on empty seats and attempting to make small hobo talk. Sure enough, I spotted him doing just that. But when I glanced up, he was gone. This hobo just vanished into the night. Gone with the same winds that likely lifted him from his home under an I-10 underpass and brought him into downtown Tucson.
Curious about this hobo, I asked a quizzer about him. "So that was the hobo? The black guy sitting at your table?" With a puzzled look on her face, she replied, "Black guy? The hobo wasn't black. He was white!" "Oh," I responded. "That must have been a lot of grime on the hobo." Now, am I racist? (The answer is "yes," but work with me here for storytelling purposes.) In no way did I mean to imply that black people are dirty or look dirty. I know how melanin functions in determining skin color. It was an easily misconstrued observation. Besides, I can't really be racist. Most of the best athletes I know are black! . . . ah, shit. Does THAT make me an "accidental racist?" (No, I'm totally a racist. Totally.)
