(Stupid) White People Questions:
- From Twitter: “Am I intruding or am I supporting a black owned business if I go to the hair salons in my neighborhood?”
- It depends… Is your intention to look like a Black person? For the most part it’s great. Just like anywhere else, be respectful. Be aware of your privilege. In the end, you may learn something new about yourself and your hair.

- Gin Rummy’s feud with Riley in the car is a direct reference to Jules'(Samuel L. Jackson’s) famous “Say what again!” speech during the interrogation of Brett (played by Frank Whaley) in the movie Pulp Fiction (1994).
- Gin Rummy telling the officer that he wasn’t going to “die…in vain” or be “mortally wounded…in vain” was a reference to Monty Python’s The Holy Grail between Lancelot and Concord.
