What the fuck is wrong with people?

I went over to peachtree center today because I didn't recall ever having been there before and besides it was a nice place to read The Stranger by Albert Camus for my summer reading. Peachtree center is a really beautiful marta station and decent mall. There is an escalator in peachtree center which is perhaps one of the weirdest places I have ever been. The escalator is so long that as you keep going up it and you look forward up the escalator, you eventually feel as if you are staring straight up and that the escalator is making you fall upwards. When you go down the escalator you wonder why gravity does not give you the beating you so richly deserve for even thinking about this defying-the-laws-of-physics nonsense.

After a few hours of exploring downtown Atlanta and thinking about walking into a catholic church to convert on the spot, (which I decided was probably just not how such things were done) I ended up back in Peachtree center waiting for the train to take me to Five Points Station and then down to Decatur's Marta station where I could call for a ride or catch the 19, whatever was convenient.

When I got there I saw two black kids. I nodded at one who said something in a dialect of english which I am not too skilled at speaking, since black people don't usually talk to white people (which is the obvious not to mention only reason two dialects could have developed.) He said what I believed to be, "Heyo wes goin' to the Pootytang" I nodded, not really wanting to know what this Pootytang was. He asked me "You ne'er been to the Pootang?" I said no. He told me it was a strip joint and that I could see black pussy there, and asked me if I wanted to go. Not interested in such things I said no. One of the kids said to the others, "He don't wanna see none of that BLACK PUSSY, that boy wan'z some WHITE PUSSY." The first kid asked me if I didn't like black pussy, and I responded that once you've seen one strangers pussy you've really seen every strangers pussy and that I felt rather indiffrent towards them. He said damn and thought I was full of shit. Afterwards, it struck me as strange that 15 year olds should be able to get into a strip club.
