Here’s the Problem: Ted Williams/Racism

Here’s the Problem:  Today’s top story – Homeless Man is Awesome.  Have you seen this guy?  Yesterday, smooth talking Ted Williams was homeless and by this morning he had a job offer from the Cleavland Cavaliers.

Actual Problem:  In the elevator this morning with a couple of guys talking about this story and I said, “He looks like the homeless Obama!”  and them promptly realized they had probably only seen this picture which makes me seem like I think any guy with that skin tone looks like our Black president.  (Kinda like the time when my roommates thought every black person in the audience of American Idol was Brandy…. ok, they were, but that’s besides the point).  Anyway, I was referring to the new and improved Awesome Homeless Guy who was doing interviews in a tie and haircut this morning as seen below:

I’m not racist.  I’m just not good with faces.

  1. Wow! I missed this story! Holy crap does he have a great voice!!!

  2. TSA stopped Ted Williams from getting on his flight from Columbus to NYC. No appearance on “The Today Show” on Thursday morning. No visit to 92 year-old Mom in Brooklyn. See, he didn’t have ‘proper ID’, said the TSA. So Ted spent today at the Columbus Courthouse, trying to figure out how to get a copy of his birth certificate. Obviously he did have some form of ID, but the TSA wasn’t satisfied with it. The man has been homeless for four years. OK, America – What are we going to do about this out-of-control phony security dance? These blockheads, however, are typical of our society. Follow the little rule book, and throw common sense out the window. Wrong. No little rule book takes away YOUR OBLIGATION TO THINK FOR YOURSELF. There are times you have to make an exception. That’s “the exception that proves the rule”. It’s like the traffic cop giving the mother of the little girl in a coma in Las Vegas a ‘jaywalking ticket’ – gave it to her right in the hospital. Or the policeman giving a ticket to the Dad who raced to the hospital while his wife’s water broke in the car on the way to the hospital in New Hampshire. RETRAIN EVERYBODY — OR FIRE THEM. (Heh, do you think President Obama would like to help this guy out, too?)
