This makes twice that someone has read one of my stories and come to the conclusion that I am racist.
And I have always thought that my stories involving Brigadier-Captain Azikiwe would get me slapped with a racism tag, but so far it's been a law enforcement story both times.
I wonder why this is? I had thought that maybe the occasional reader would see "Texas Peace Officer" and find me automatically Guilty Of Racism Until Proven Innocent due to the Southern Cop Stereotype, but I don't really see any clues in this story to point to me being a Texas cop.
And I hate to break it to her, but while that story involves some violence, it doesn't come close to the level of 'sickening' that I am capable of.
The pen that writes humour can, if it so wishes, produce tales of violence that have given people nightmares.
Mr. Critter lived a violent life of crime. He lived by violence and he died by violence. That is a fact. Getting your hanes into a half-hitch over it isn't going to change that fact in any way.
And that, as they say, is that.
Blogging may be light the next couple of days, folks. Looks like I am set to become an uncle again by way of C-Section either tomorrow or Friday -- coincidentally enough by the same sister-in-law that set me straight the last time a reader labelled me a racist.
How's that for a co-inky-dink?
See y'all when I see you.
