I see your true colors

I think how people act on the road is indicative of who they are.

We live in tourist-ville in San Francisco on the North Beach Russian Hill border - we have Fisherman's Warf down the hill, Coit Tower up the hill to the right, and Lombard up the hill to the left.

Today I took the boys for a short jog down to the Ferry Building, but this 3-mile run turned into an obstacle course trying to make my way along the sidewalk. People, tourists especially I have come to think, love walking 3 or 4 in a row thus blocking the entire sidewalk. These same 3 or 4 in a rowers did not seem to want to budge today so my double stroller and I were forced to stand off to the side of the sidewalk behind lamps and bushes as people walked by. In fact, the only people who did move out of the way were two groups of who I would otherwise call "thugs." You really can't judge a book by its cover / person by their appearance ... but you can judge by how they act.

Would these "thugs" you described just be black people? I mean "thugs"? Really?
