|I think Michael Dunn looks a little like Jimmy Osmond.|
This afternoon, after I had made myself as presentable as I would ever be, but while Alyssa was still slaving away at her beauty routine, I amused myself by visiting Twitter. The Michael Dunn case was a topic of discussion, and an African-American self-proclaimed law student was taking Judge Alex to task for having suggested that evidence was unclear as to whether race had been a motivating factor in Michael Dunn's decision to shoot into the car in which Jordan Davis was a passenger.
I will not name the Tweeter, as I would prefer that he not show up here.
The tweeter was not pleased with me.
He tweeted the following:
@TheAngelAlexis @judgealexferrer This will teach you since your OWN have elaborated on it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-SpF3cwJ86A …
He linked a video of which I watched only a snippet. The part I saw featured members of the Klan. I asked him what made him think the people in the video were my own.
You're the person tht will say I have BLK friends or When I see u I dont see color well do u see as a male @TheAngelAlexis @judgealexferrer
I responded that he had mischaracterized me. I acknowledged the continued existence of racism, but maintained that taste in music tends to be more deeply rooted in age than in ethnicity.
He then tweeted:
@TheAngelAlexis Well understand this involved race. If it was another color of males they [presumably sic -- I'm not exactly sure what was his point, but he probably meant wouldn't be] would be gunned down in the way they were.
My friend Jaci showed up during the exchange. She inquired about his name/handle. He refers in said handle to his belief that his finances will soon change for the better. His actual name, if it really is his name, is three unrelated syllables culled from God knows where. He took slight umbrage at her questioning of his name/handle. Meanwhile, he was also carrying on flirtatious excahnges with a couple of women.
Then he again responded to me:
