Flip Zimmerman:
I'm Jewish, but I wasn't raised to be. It wasn't part of my life, I never thought much about being Jewish, nobody around me was Jewish. I wasn't going to a bunch of Bar Mitzvahs, I didn't have a Bar Mitzvah. I was just another white kid. And now I'm in some basement denying it out loud. *chuckles* I never thought much about it, now I'm thinking about it all the time. About rituals and heritage. Is that passing?

staring at you,

- It sounds like they're watching us.

Look at this bullshit.
Where'd you find these?
Plastered all over
my windshield,
but they're all over
the neighborhood, too.
Is this real?
Real as can be.
Intimidation?
Clearly, this is about the
Black Student Union and you.
- Me?
- Well, you've been outspoken
about the incident
with the police
when Brother Kwame was here.
So, next, they'll have
a burning cross out front?
All right, they're just
trying to get to you.
