...I'm making a rap song. You got some ideas?"
When I was in college, I worked for Coca Cola as a merchandiser. While on a regular route, a white man approached me said "I'm making a rap song. You think you could help me come up with some lyrics?"
I never met this person before. He assumed because I was black, that I knew how to rap. My response was "What makes you think I know how to rap?"
The guy paused and had nothing to say. Then he walked away.
