In a posting titled I Hate Defending Myself, Luke Ford, former porn gossip blogger turned L.A. Jewish community blogger, recites a thrilling near hit-and-run incident while strolling across an intersection in the Pico-Robertson district — well, not exactly strolling:
It bugged me that he was going to cut off my cool calm walk (full of Alexander Technique with my head riding high on my spine and shoulders relaxed and broadening, my hips going out and my legs stretching long) so I smacked his car hard and waved angrily in front of his windshield.
That’s right, Luke smacked the hood of the guy’s car. The daring! The bravado! The sheer machismo! How dare you interrupt Luke’s Alexander Technique! Luke makes sure to point out that the driver was “white, about 35 y.o.” and closes the insightful essay by adding:
I would never bang on the car of anyone who looked violent, particularly not a young black man.
Do the words chicken shit punk bastard racist, quivering coward motherf***er mean anything special to you, Luke?
