    I forgot about that. That was the guy that said he didn’t know if Obama was black because he never met him right?

    Correct

    Evans’ Attorney, Jack Schulz: When did you first meet Tracy Evans?

    Founders Manager Dominic Ryan: 2011, 2012. We had mutual friends before working there, so …

    Schulz: OK, So you knew Tracy prior to his employment at Founders?

    Ryan: We met a few times, yes.

    Schulz: OK, are you aware Tracy is Black?

    Ryan: What do you mean by that?

    Schulz: Are you aware Tracy is African-American?

    Ryan: I’m not sure of his lineage so I can’t answer that.

    Schulz: Alright. Are you aware that Tracy is a man of color?

    Ryan: What do you mean by that?

    Schulz: No? Do you know … You don’t know what it means for someone to be a white person or a Black person?

    Ryan: I’m asking for clarification.

    Schulz: You don’t need any. I can promise you that. We’ll keep the record as is. Someone’s skin color. A white …

    Ryan: So that’s what you’re referring to?

    Schulz: Yeah. Oh, yeah, yeah.

    Ryan: OK. Yes, I know the difference in skin tone.

    Schulz: Are you able to identify individuals by their skin tone?

    Ryan: What do you mean “identify”?

    Schulz: I mean have you ever looked at Tracy Evans in your entire life? Have you? That’s a … that’s a genuine question.

    Founders Attorney: Objection. Argumentative.

    Founders Attorney: You can answer.

    Ryan: Yes.

    Schulz: And did you ever realize that Tracy’s skin [is] Black?

    Ryan: That’s not … I mean, is his skin different from mine? Yes.

    Schulz: How?

    Ryan: What do you mean “how”? It’s a different color.

    Schulz: And what is the difference of that color?

    Ryan: It’s darker.

    Schulz: And that means?

    Founders Attorney: Objection. Vague question.

    Schulz: I mean, we could … This could be a one-sentence answer, you know. So by your … I guess your testimony is you have no idea if Tracy is a minority, if he’s African-American?

    Ryan: I don’t know Tracy’s lineage, so I can’t speculate on whether he’s … if he’s from Africa or not.

    Schulz: What do you mean lineage, from Africa?

    Ryan: No. I mean, like, I don’t know his DNA.

    Schulz: Have you ever met Black people who aren’t from Africa?

    Ryan: Excuse me?

    Schulz: Have you ever met a Black person born in America?

    Ryan: Yes.

    Schulz: And you were able … Have you ever met a Black person who didn’t tell you they were Black?

    Ryan: Can you rephrase that?

    Schulz: Is Barack Obama Black?

    Founders Attorney: Objection.

    Schulz: To your knowledge?

    Ryan: I’ve never met Barack Obama so I don’t …

    Schulz: So you don’t know if Barack Obama is Black? What about Michael Jordan? Do you know if Michael Jordan is Black?

    Founders Attorney: Objection

    Ryan: I’ve never met him.

    Schulz: So you don’t know him? What about Kwame Kilpatrick?

    Ryan: Never met him.

    Schulz: To your knowledge, was Kwame Kilpatrick Black?

    Ryan: I …

    Schulz: You don’t know?

    Ryan: I don’t know.

    Honestly of all of the places to be during a shelter in place, Michigan spring/summer is a pretty damn good option, assuming we can get out to the parks/trails/lakes. Just need these temps to get to the 50s+ and stay there.

    Expect this to be the 2 week deal like others have done or longer? Curious because the school date was 4/6/2020 which is also 2 weeks from today.

    I'm not to be honest. I missed that it was extended to 4/13. That was when we would have gone back anyhow with our Spring Break being the week of 4/6.

    Wonder if any of the spring summer sports get off the ground at all. Seems unlikely

    I had chuckled about this in NYC and then my wife clued me in that if alcoholics go through withdrawals it’ll further tax the hospital systems.

    Makes some sense, however lots of grocery stores carry alcohol. Seems it could be avoided putting more people out and about.

    Because apparently we need 2 senators representing 311,000 people, which is roughly 53% of the population of Wyoming, the current least populated state.

    Love the UP, spent most my summers up there, but they absolutely could not support themselves as a state. So many working government jobs and getting assistance, they'd have no tax base.

    Live in oakland county and work in Detroit...fun times. Luckily we've almost fully transitioned to online court so I havent had to go to Detroit for a couple weeks. I've been exposed to people who tested positive I found out but it's been 14 days since then now.

    My best friend (literally is usually at my apartment every day of the week) is a home health care worker for adults with developmental disabilities. She works in a house with 3 clients and a few other coworkers. Last Monday, one of the clients had a high fever and a cough, took them to hospital. Negative for flu test. COVID came back today positive (8 days later, good times).

    Even though she stopped coming over right away after that, the weekend before she spent basically the entire weekend here, so I'm assuming I have it. She definitely has it, there's no way she doesn't.

    Good times. Good times.

    I mean I may have had it...I read a lot of people show limited to no symptoms. I'm in my 30s and relatively healthy. I had a cough, but it's hard for me to tell because I get allergies so I just assumed it was allergies and never developed a fever or anything. This was earlier in the breakout in michigan and my doctor basically told me despite my contact with people who tested positive and having a cough they didnt have a kit to test me. He told me to just stay home and monitor my symptoms, nothing else ever developed. So I dont know.

    There was a nasty strain of influenza-B floating around about a month to 2 weeks ago as well. I definitely had it. A coworker, his kid, his girlfriend--also a coworker, all tested positive for it and I was sick the week after being at their house.

    But yeah right now I feel fine. Of course now there's that twinge of doubt every time I have a tickle in my throat (you make the joke)

    Yea, my grandpa unfortunately died from influenza right when the stay at home order was started. Didnt get to visit him in hospital or have a funeral because of everything going on. The head of the police department division I deal with and have dealt with for years also died of covid 19 last week. He had a limited service today. It's so weird and it's like it hasn't registered with me yet without funerals or anything else.
