Slicker, puh-lease!

The Lifeguard Wonders
If there is a storm in the ghetto, and the snow melts, then re-freezes, is the result "black ice"?

Isn't "black ice" far more treacherous than regular ice?  (It's definitely worse than the "white stuff.")

Will "black ice" fuck you up if you are Asian, and own a grocery store?

Will "black ice" kick your narrow white ass if you are Hasidim?

Isn't "black ice" an outdated expression of hatred and evil?  Should we even talk about "black ice" causing people to be late to work?  Isn't it a term to be consigned to the ash-heap of history?

(The answer to the above questions are:  No, Yes, No, No, Yes, No, and Yes.

So, on this MLK Day, join The Lifeguard in his attempts to eliminate this hateful expression from our lexicon.  Let's make the use of the term, "black ice" history.
