1001 Black Men–#495




















Due to our unseasonably warm weather, people have been sporting summer-weight clothes all over the Bay Area. Even down in Monterey, where I spent my last weekend, there was a group of teens dressed in shorts (for the guys) and sundresses (for the women). I, on the other hand, was wearing a t-shirt, a button-down shirt, and a v-neck sweater … and I was still cold. Back here in Oakland, where I arrived just before sundown, young brothers were still hanging out in their over-sized white t-shirts. An hour later, they were probably pulling on hoodies and such, but 60 or so degrees in the Bay Area and the Central Coast means summer for many Californians.

I am actually from a part of the country that gets really cold and, ironically enough, I’ve been freezing all month.
