“I don’t want to kill people!”

It is time for ‘pizza and wine just to pass the time’ on a Saturday night in Ft. Greene. The man in the pizzaria who always remembers your last order offers his take on the ’08 Presidential race. He’s sharing his opinion on Arab-American voting.

“I hope he gets it, too!”

Great! Just make sure you vote.

“A lot of people say that they are for him, but they won’t vote or do anything…Arab people like me. Obama, he doesn’t want the war. Why is our country killing the poor people? I don’t want to kill people! No food to eat for one month, maybe some water and a little bit of food. In America, Arab people are so mad about it, but they do nothing. They don’t vote. I don’t want to kill people!”

I don’t either. Can’t just talk about it, you gotta be about it, huh?
