"yes, i got very drunk last night and beat a kid up. it was quite fun. after all of the talk about fighting, i finally beat up some dumb white kid who thought he was black. i "disrespected" him. oh yes, i did. and then i went on to show him more disrespect by punching him in the face a few times, pushing him to the ground and was well on my way to choking him to death when it all got too complicated for me. i suppose he thought there was no chance of a man my age doing such a thing to him, but he was quite wrong. it felt great. i was a hero. he was an asshole and he took his little posse of losers out of the bar in some haste, breaking glass on the way, to reassert his concepts on the world."
