For every NASCAR fan, this is the ONLY season that matters. Racing season. I was fortunate enough to be amongst the crowd at the 58 th annual running of the Daytona 500, the Super Bowl of auto racing. Our journey to Daytona started in January when my dad sent me a text message asking for my information to renew my NASCAR license....

Why we were on Randleman Road in Robespierre’s truck in the middle of the afternoon was somewhat of a story in itself. We’d gathered on this day as a follow up to our first insurgency meeting earlier in the week.

A contest between the guy who wants to build a wall across the Mexican border, round up the Muslims and force Apple Computers to make their products in America and the guy willing to speak the truths we all feel in our hearts regarding the economic inequality killing the spirit of the masses, now that’s the contest we need in 2016 for the future of America. ...

I’m thinking my white privilege began in 1977 when I was introduced to Officer Friendly while attending Old Town Elementary School on Reynolda Road. Officer Friendly didn’t shoot me or cause me bodily injury. He was nice, and friendly, and gave me a good impression of police....

My childhood coincided with the glory days of Alabama football and the man in the hounds tooth hat who roamed the sidelines like a demigod.
