Speaking of racism.

This was my experience yesterday. I just copied this from my Facebook post so as not to have to type it out again.

Had a woman and her son come in yesterday. She had a deep southern accent. First thing she says is "will you help me beat my son?" I said, I don't think so. She said she heard we had tobacco. I pointed it out to her. They then walked over to the guns as she asked where I was from, since some people seem to confuse my slow drawl speech with a southern accent. I told her Indiana. She said she just moved her a couple days ago from Alabama. Making small talk, I asked her what brought her to this frozen tundra. Was not expecting her reply. She said "ni#@ers". I said WHAT? She said yes, I'm racist, they don’t like the cold, I figured there won't be any around. So I played her for a moment as Ryan stood back with his jaw hanging.
I told her, ya know, some of them are adapting. They even come in here. They buy fireworks, fishing stuff and now and then one will even buy a gun. To protect themselves from people like you. She stammered on, then her son spotted the fuse. She stormed out and he started babbling on out the bombs he makes.
Stupid people. I suspect trouble has come to Houghton lake. I hope they got the hint that they are not welcome back in.

Yes, her exact words. Ryan stood back in shock wondering how I would handle it.

That's so interesting.
Most of them don't even want to call themselves a racist, IME.

At least she knows lol (bright side)

What's this bomb noise tho? That's alarming

She was quite proud of it. She seemed to think she was safe to proclaim it, since black people don't like the cold and all. Freaking stupid people. The clerk at the marathon said they come in there and carried on too.
I'm not sure about the bomb making stuff. I know I won't sell him any fuse.
He did seem embarrassed by his mom and said I wish you would stop telling people that.

Not right next. We're more in the middle of the state. We do have the largest inland lake in the state. It's huge.
