white people

"I believe that when God created man, he provided wild animals to be the food of the Masarwa. The Bamangwato depend on their cattle to provide their food. The Kalanga depend on their crops. White people live on money, bread, and sugar. These are the traditional foods of these groups of people..."

My $5 dilemma

I found a $5 bill on the ground in October when I was walking to the BART station in downtown Berkeley to go home. I picked it up and thought about how that was a significant amount for someone to have dropped and that they would likely be pissed when they found out that they dropped it. So, I decided that I couldn't spend the money on myself since I have a f-cked up uncontrollable force that has always been pushing me to be socially responsible/honest/promote good karma. I thought that I would give it to a homeless person since they could probably stretch the money further than me. 3 months later, it is still in my bag.
