Your bar is down the street.

I was stationed at Parris Island going to Personnel school. I was from New York and with my three New Jersey (also Black) friends went into Beaufort, SC. We walked into a bar and my friend said “three beers, please”. I was at the jukebox looking for Motown and finding The Grand Ole Opry. Those six words were what the bartender said…twice. We left, walked down the street and was greeted with wall to wall us, The Four Tops and The Temptations.
