Man, trust me I know when it's a "that's an interesting name" inquiry and when it's a "that name doesn't fit" inquiry. It's pretty obvious. Then theres the "you aren't fit for the name boy," inquiry which is rare, but happens. More so in South Carolina...

I took a meeting at a business that was literally right across the street from this place and had that third type of inquiry. Pricks.

I don't know what I expected when I clicked. I did not expect something so overtly racist. I mean the place is named after a derogatory term for other human beings. CMON HUMANS GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER.

That is a... shockingly racist establishment.

My father was on a first name basis with this guy when I was a kid. South Carolina is a special place.
