Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling SIXTH IN A SERIES OF GOVERNMENT INFORMATION BROCHURES YOUR local government, working for YOU! Attention, African Americans! We Regular Americans are delighted you've joined us here in Our Greatest Nation On Earth! The historical circumstances of your ancestors' arrival were somewhat less than voluntary and enthusiastic, but we don't hold that against you! Of course, you hold the rights and privileges that all Americans do! And to be sure you enjoy them properly, kindly adhere to the following Helpful Tips. When shopping, please announce when you are moving to a new aisle so that helpful clerks may follow you without delay or confusion. It is impolite to mention "white privilege" -- please pretend it does not exist. After all, we are courteous enough to pretend that Rap is music. If stopped at any time for questioning by a police officer, please do not make any sudden menacing or threatening gestures, such as being a black male. It is every citizen's right to peaceably protest, so please do so under the watchful gaze of our tank operators and snipers. Note: Throwing tear gas canisters back at the authorities who launched them at you is considered a faux pas. REMEMBER: All Americans are equal, and if you follow these simple guidelines, YOU CAN BE TOO!
