This is Jimi Hendrix. He lives near the corner of Broadway and Pine on Capitol Hill.
Jimi may have to move. (see: http://blog.seattlepi.com/thebigblog/archives/190867.asp)
Personally, I think he should stay where he is. You see, from all accounts, Jimi was never, ever, African.
I’m not sure why we still have an obsession with grouping people. All the black people over here, all the Asians over there, all the Mexicans over to Los Angeles, etc.
Hendrix belongs in a rock and roll museum, not a nonsensical-term museum. Also, Broadway/Pine is more heavily trafficked than a specialty PC museum would be.
He is at home on Capitol Hill. People of all races, colors, creeds, genders, and ages pass him every day. Four bus lines pass Jimi. The new Capitol Hill Subway Station will be near Jimi.
Jimi does not want to move. He tells me this every day I pass him. He whispers “Rex, don’t let them move me to the ghetto just because I’m black. In this day and age, can’t I live on the hill? Aren’t we past this color shit yet? ”
Every day, I have to tell him, “No, Jimi, no we’re not.”
Every day, Jimi cries.
