Day 97 - worked on my swing again today with just the 6 iron. The whole practice felt crappy and I filmed it. Nothing felt right and contact wasn’t great. But the video actually looked like I was changing the picture a bit to where I want it. So I guess I was doing it right surprisingly.
I’m a 5’ 10” white male, 190 lbs with short to medium length brown hair. I am 60 years old but could pass for much younger. I literally fit the description of many, many people who’ve committed crimes. But I have never been cornered by the police because I “fit the description “. No police officer has ever pulled out a gun on me. The retired Chief of Police in my city Is a friend of mine for crying out loud. I have never worried about this scenario.
Tim Duncan, the 6’ 10” world famous basketball player somehow did 15 miles from me. This is what BLM is all about. They assumed he was dangerous because he was black. If he wasn’t calm and collected, they could have over-reacted and killed him. And they would have gotten away with it.
I marched with a peaceful demonstration in my city with people of every ethnic background on Thursday with my god kids, both adopted from Korea. The mayor spoke, who is a friend of mine. He is also white but understands the problem. It was a moving rally. Our police force was there doing their jobs and being respectful. I was proud of them and the high school kids who organized the rally. I hope something good comes from all of this.
I abhor racism. I also scoff at those people who don’t think there is a problem. It is a huge problem.

Life was good in suburban Boston, Massachusetts for Tim Duncan. Until it wasn’t so good anymore.
