Oakland Bus Fight Goes Viral

If the terms "Epic Beard Man" and "Amber Lamps" mean nothing to you, then I congratulate you for having better things to do with your free time than watch YouTube videos. But, on the other hand, you're missing one of the most tragicomic things that I've seen in years. And the many interpretations, parodies, and remixes of it that pop up every day say more about inter-racial relations in contemporary America than I could absorb in a month of seminars.

Okay - you have piqued my interest.

I have never, ever heard of any of these things!

Am going to step out and go searching... with fear and trepidation...
