PART III – Back To The Sandbox
The music stopped and Troy’s ears were grateful. An hour straight of Rage Against the Machine was a bit much.
Troy turned around in the driver’s seat, “What’s next? My ears are ringing so maybe we can go somewhat lighter. We still have forty minutes till Dukan Lake.”
“You want some sissy music, a little Elton John maybe?” cracked the Jackal from the back seat.
“No, Sarge is in the other vehicle,” retorted Troy with a wide grin.
“Let the mademoiselle decide,” replied the Jackal.
“Whoa!” exclaimed Troy. “You’re letting the newbie pick songs already?”
Full Disclosure: I’m male. I’m white. I’m not a racist.
Racism is defined as: a belief that race is the primary determination of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race. Racist beliefs are not passed along through genes, they are learned at home, acquired from society, encouraged by like-minded individuals.
Another cowardly act has been perpetrated on innocent lives by evil men. This time it took place in Belgium, a country that is a hotbed of Islamic extremism. And yes, I called these men evil.

Let me be clear, Islam is not evil, just those that disseminate this extreme ideology.
