"You'll shoot your eye out."
This sentence has vastly different meanings to the white community in America and to the Black community of the USofA.
White people recall the Pre-Obama America Christmas classic, "A Christmas Story", with Ralph's hunger for a Red Ryder BB Gun being squashed by an overbearing parent, educator and even Santa (thankfully, father knows best in the end).
Black people, however, have a different interpretation of the sentence, as they use this phrase to implore fellow Black people to be careful when performing gun safety demonstrations or when walking down the street in Atlanta:
"A 19-year-old college student walking with friends was struck and killed by a stray bullet early Thursday on the campus of Clark Atlanta University, police said.Atlanta is one of the least safest cities in America and coincidentally, the Black Mecca of America.Jasmine Lynn, of Kansas City, Mo., was struck in the chest when shots were fired during a fight nearby. Another student whose name was not released was hit on the wrist and taken to a hospital.
Christmas is upon us again, as Black Friday has come and gone and the decorations are ubiquitous throughout neighborhoods in America.
Carolers are nearing and the smell of chestnuts roasting on opening fires dances upon with wind with its inviting aroma.
SBPDL will be celebrating the Christmas season in style - starting December 13.
Interestingly, Christmas is bifurcating into a predominately Pre-Obama America camp and into another group of people who view the holiday with a strong Black-face.
So, we ask you the reader to send us the best stories about Black people and Christmas you can find, for it is obvious that the term "white Christmas" is redundant. The creation of Kwanzaa shows the general public the truth about how Black people view Christmas and Pre-Obama America with crystal-clear simplicity.

Stuff Black People Don't Like is going to embrace the Christmas season completely and we need your help in compiling the ultimate list of SBPDL and the Yule season.
