^ well said. To add on that, i find it funny that more people dont make the connection between denying ***s rights and denying blacks rights earlier on in history. now i'm not saying that ***s have it as bad as blacks did, because they certainly do not. but americans in general pride themself on being a fair and equal place in the world in which to live, so shouldn't they live up to that in regards to this issue?
What you've done becomes the judge of what you're going to do -- especially in other people's minds. When you're traveling, you are what you are right there and then. People don't have your past to hold against you. No yesterdays on the road.

Your toughest competitor lives in your head. Some days his name is fear, or pain, or gravity. Stomp his ass.
