2 feet of snow, lucky to be alive
Well, it's not widespread knowledge but a lot of black men die from asphyxiation in the snow. Because snow combines our two greatest natural fears: large masses of water, and whiteness. If we go into snow higher than twelve inches, we feel like we're in some sort of body of water (our weakness), and ALSO feel as if we're surrounded by our more secondary weakness (large groups of white people). So a lot of us believe there's a bunch of little white guys grabbing our ankles and pulling us down into the snowy depths and we think we're being drowned. I'm posting this as one of the surviving black men of this horrible two day storm, my friends, I survived.
