I think I'll start this thread with two post, but I'm not sure if this is in the right forum however. But anyway, I've notice in my area down here in south suburban Atlanta, that several of the American Deli sandwich shops are being run by Africans and Asians working together in the same shop. Not only that, some of them are mixed race (African-Asian). This one young African-Asian sister, with a nice round butt too, probably about 24, has been giving me extra attention. What's strange is, the Asian people working in the back don't mind, even when I flirt back. A little before the Holidays, the very pretty young African-Asian sister I'm speaking of told me she had a Black father who lives in Loisianna, plus she said he had my last name after she saw my credit card. All I know is, everytime I go in there, and if I'm the only customer eating in, she suddenly pops out from behind the cashier where she works, and starts cleaning tables around me with her backside constantly facing me. This used to be a "go for it" sign, however today with all the mind games, I'm not sure. But if she starts bending over in front of me, I'm putting my bid in, and I don't care whose watching. Right now I think it's just a marketing scheme, because I've seen Asians do some very strange things sometimes with their very, and I mean very young daughters while they own these small restaurants in the hood. I remember in the DMV during the late 80's and earlier 90's, when a lot of black women were selling their bodies for 5 and 1o dollars, there was this Chinese food joint that sat in this little shopping strip along side other stores. They stayed open until about 11:00pm. Anyway, sometimes like on Sunday nights near closing, and when customer traffic was slow, they would have their two little daughters, I'd say around 9 or 10, maybe 11, just parading in their pajamas on the sidewalk right outside of the entry door. Some of these brother perverts would pull up in their cars to see what was up, but they would just ignore them, and continue parading like they were worshiping the lighting bugs or something. I don't know if that was a custom, a marketing scheme or what, but it seemed very irresponsible on their parents behalf with all that prostitution going on all around them. So when it comes to this young African-Asian girl who was giving me all this attention, I wouldn't be surprised if it's just a marketing practice. I just wish these young good looking girls would stop teasing us older cats if they don't really mean anything. Now at this other location, they have more Africans working there along side the Asians, and African-Asians. It's this store that actually prompted me to right this thread, because I clearly see the Africans and Asian working together, and it makes it seem as though the Asian and African partnerships in Africa are beginning to take place over here. I felt some love from some of the Africans in this store, but then again I feel dislike from some of them. For example one day the sodas tasted like acid and not sweet. I was telling two African sisters sitting next to me that the sodas tasted too much like acid. One sister (wow did she have a body) understood me, while the other sister told me in a rude way that they were drinking juice...how ignorant. Anyway, I walked up to complain to the African cashier after she pretended she didn't see me, as she walked by me several times as though she wasn't working. So I got her attention and told her about the sodas. When I was leaving, I said bye to the two sisters, but by my surprise, the one that was acting funny was the only one that said bye back, after she figured her friend wasn't going to, but she still said bye in a negative tone. As I was leaving out the glass door, I saw her reflection shaking her head at me. I noticed from the moment I moved down here in this part of Georgia that the foreigners, black and non-black, have a somewhat negative attitude towards African-Americans, very similar to the attitudes of southern Whites. I'm not saying foreigners love us all that much in the North, but you see a stark difference in them down here, and you may find yourself having to set them straight, along with the southern Whites. Then I was at this one day Online Trading Introductory class last night. I heard about it through the web, after listening to a Black radio talk show. By my surprise, all the speakers were white, and 90% of the guest were white, although I thought it was a brother who called me and confirmed my seat. I wounded up only 2 minutes late (poor GPS instructions), which wasn't bad being my first time there, and over an hour drive. On arrival I was asked to take a form and have a seat with the rest of the guest in the lobby, while I filled the form out. Before I had time to finish, some foreign guy walked in and ask the people who were finished filling out their forms to follow him into the orientation room. I heard him discussing some charts according to recent trends. So I took my uncompleted form, handed it to the receptionist, and told her since that guy left me here, I was going to leave my uncompleted form with her, so I could learn what I came to learn. But I should have left right there on the spot, since that foreigner didn't have enough respect to tell me I could compete the form later or something, but instead left me, not telling me anything, indicating I was late. Although the class hadn't actually started, I couldn't tell that foreigner was only taking them to the orientation room for a ten minute discussion, while offering free snacks and drinks. Anyway when I walked in that orientation room I gave that foreign guy a mean stare the whole time. He looked like he was willing to kiss the feet of all those white people. I'll be glad when we get enough up to date people down here and start knocking some sense into some of these southerners, including the foreigners. They really have a color problem down here when it comes to African-Americans in certain environments...it was bad enough on my IT job back in the DMV.
