And the white people are getting scared shitless.
I recently started a an ongoing project on the State Fair of Texas. I want to photograph the different faces of the fair, according to the different days they hold. I started with public school day. I've always found it so interesting how much unnecessary effort the State Fair and DPD puts into subduing black teenagers who are just trying to have a good time. The minute they start being loud, the gang units rush over and escort them out. I mean, seriously, they're teenagers. They could do much worse than congregate in big groups and start yelling. I'd put any amount of money on the fact that the white kids at the fair are doing far worse. Did I mention that you can almost get away with murder as a white kid at the fair on public school day? seriously, they don't care.
I'm not gonna lie, it's pretty hilarious to watch all the white people freak out or them squeeze their purses closer than their children because they have never seen so many black people all in one place.
But anyways, that's my soapbox for today. Here's how I saw the fair on that Friday. Other days on my list include gay day, senior day, opening day, private school day, different bowl games...any ideas would be greatly appreciated =)
