The week we were expecting the George Zimmerman verdict, I stopped in at the buffet place across the street from the Radio Flyer wagon company – as I was leaving, I noticed this picture on the wall. I was pretty sure it was new. Almost all of the employees are black Americans, and maybe half the customers. It’s just beyond the city limits of Chicago on Grand Avenue. I thought it odd enough that I took the picture for future reference.
I went there today for my $12 buffet lunch – all of the help I saw were Hispanic. The place was close to empty and not up to normal. Buffet needs volume to keep the food from drying out.
On the way out, the picture had been replaced with this chocolate chip cookie
