Outside Florida Avenue liquors:

Toothless African-American: Hey, yo, you want some CDs?

Prominent white political blogger: Not really [turns to walk away]

TAA: Yo, yo, hold up man. I got some white boy shit, here; some real weak-ass shit. You’ll love it.

PWPB: No Thanks. [walking away]

TAA: What? You offended? You only want that hard stuff? Who you playin’?

I have to admit that the guy was making a decent point. Still, selling illegal CDs has to be a terrible line of work in the digital era.
