And I'll tell you this - I know what it was like when I was really helpless, how many beatings I got. And I know what happens now because I'm not really helpless. But I know, too, that if he (police) don't know this is Jimmy Baldwin and not just some other n****r he's gonna blow my head off just like he blows off everybody else's head. It could happen to my mother in the morning, to my sister, to my brother...For me this has always been a violent country - it has never been a democracy."

It might not be good to talk too much politics here but here are the comments from HongKong, police brutality is everywhere.

Last year during HongKong protest there are more than 7000+ protester arrested & 0 police was charged for anything. Now we lose freedom of speech, we cannot say anything against the government publicly or even privately. There are always people living worst than you, so we have to cherish what we have at the moment.

I was in Philly in 2001 tattooing there for about 6 weeks. I was shocked at how some of my co workers were racist. No subtle jokes to find out if the new guy was one with it. But hardcore racist talk and jokes, music etc.

Still had a great time there and made friends

Yeah, I've ceased amazement at white America's racism @smoothsailor. No less disgusted, just no longer amazed at its expression.

And @kenko, I think I get your point. It's maybe a little muddied to me, but yes, there's always value in gratitude for what is worthy. Always also value in aspiration for what could be. And further, value in criticism for what is deserving. I try to keep a mindful balance.

good morning! of course...

russell moccasins saddle oneida moccasin in burgundy cxl with crepe sole found here

[all gone now it seems...]

after spending lots of time looking at big boots, the actual hole in the shoe collection was the more casual end so saw these went yes...

[always looking for slip on / lighter yuks that fit the right price: and these seemed lower cost and more severely built, also planning on more military style tops, needed something more slacker to pair with camo/olive to not look psycho / prepper / MAGA-style]

the crepe sole is a lot heavier and rigid than expected tho; a lot heavier than anything crepe I have owned before... [makes them heavier than the rm chukkas, nearly as heavy as my steel toes...]

gives great big profile; but the heel slip is real atm, which is a bit more of a problem for a slip on than an engineer...

enjoying the irony of winter capable loafers / boating shoes that have a boots-liek feel... cramming in wooden socks or sports socks with inserts to keep them vaguely on my feet...

for mooching around more than running, for sure.

quik pix...

^sorry to see you go (contest wise) @roomtemplacroix - lots of good pics from you - but if they're not right makes sense. And esp to move them on (looks regretfully across at my jeans tub which still has pairs jammed at the bottom that don't quite fit -but never had the outlet(at the time) to sell on..:wacko2:

The chest measurements listed on their size chart seem really small in relation to the other measurements. For instance the size 46 appears to have a chest that measures slightly over 42. Had me wondering if the chart is accurate.
