Who's that musician?



Son #1 wore this shirt to school today. He's a musician, and a huge fan, just like Hubby.

An African-American classmate saw the shirt and said, "Bob Marley? You don't know anything about black people."

Son #1's response? "I know enough about black people to know this is Jimi Hendrix."

I'm so glad it was Hendrix, because that's who I thought it was on first glance and I was afraid I was wrong. Good for your son! My kinda response...snarky and to the point!

That school impresses me more and more with each story you tell.

Jill-Apparently the guy came back with "Uh, well, ok, but I don't like black people who act white."

So, I guess, Son #1 doesn't know anything about black people except the fake kind who become famous because they are outrageously talented.

Also, as a side note, he wore a second Hendrix shirt to school 2 days ago and three people complimented him on his Bob Marley t-shirt.

I'm sorry, but THOSE 2 MEN LOOKED NOTHING ALIKE. TRULY.

I told him to wear a Bob Marley shirt, just to see how many people think it is Jimi Hendrix.

OK - this is really funny... maybe he should go for a Ziggy Marley shirt?
