"The Name Is Mohammad"

“The revolution is coming.”
Those are the words of a co-worker I’ll call Dave. It’s his way of saying hi, and today is no different. I’m sitting at a desk and he’s entered the room behind me.
“Hi, Dave,” I say, without looking up.
“The name is Mohammad,” he says.
I turn around in my chair. He’s staring down at me with a look meant to be intimidating, but I can see the slightest of smiles curling the corner of his lip.
“Hello, Mohammad,” I say. “When did you change your name?”
“Since I escaped from the economic and spiritual bondage that your people have imposed on my people.”
“Don’t look at me,” I tell him. “My ancestors fought for the Union.”
“Sh*t,” he says, drawing the word out and pulling up a chair. “I’m talking about the economic situation today. Here I am working like a dog, making a white man rich.”
“I’m working, too. Have you ever thought about starting your own business?”
“Yeah, I have,” he says, warming to the idea. “Me and Jimmy and Melvin talked about putting our chump change together and opening a dance place. Charging ten dollars to get in.”
“Did you do it?”
“Nah. These are black people, man. If some dude gets shot, or a girl gets raped in the back, or some dude on PCP comes running out of the bathroom buck naked, they’d shut us down.”
“It’s tough being a business owner.”
“Tell me about it.”
“What do you think about Obama?” I ask him.
“I have no opinion of him.”
“You don’t?”
“No. How can I have an opinion about someone who doesn’t exist. He’s the devil. He never should have been put in the White House. Damn anti-Christ. People think I’m crazy when I tell them the revolution is coming, but it’s coming. It’s coming.”

  1. Obama absolutely is the devil. And so far it seems congress has no desire to call for an exorcism. 😳

     
  2. Its already here. Began with his being cast out of heaven with the five “I Wills”. As a believer Look up for Jesus Christ never mind the anti-christ. Remember Stephen when the mob was stoning him? Pretty fine example there!

     
  3. Great post, Mike! It reads like the beginning of a novel. I want to read the rest of the story! 😉

     
  4. Can I pre-order that novel? Can it be autographed as a Kindle?

     
    • Thank you, Dr. Eowyn and marblecntr! It’s just an observation. If I can ever figure out how to format on amazon kindle, I have some other material that are novels to publish.

       
  5. I assume (perhaps wrongly) that the coworker is negroid. You will never win a debate or reach a happy medium with these. It’s the one ting they can always throw at whites and those they perceive as white. Send them all back to Africa they sure scream about being prejudiced against. I never refer to them s African-americans you’re either African or American

     
  6. Excellent! He’s right. Something’s a foot…💕
