There have been many times that I have said that the UNITED STATES is a lot smaller than what we think when it comes to being black. I don't think it's 6 degrees of separation....but more like 3 degrees of separation in the black community. I don't care if you live in NY, it's pretty likely that you know someone's business in GA or CA or someone you know knows someone else. Have you experienced this? I feel as if every 3 people I know knows someone else I know.
