You know what it really is? I really felt helpless already from the break in, and even more so when I realized that there is not only theft in my 'hood, but this weirdo who probably is thinking some of my friends are criminals just because of how they look.
I felt like I should be able to do/say something to get hi to understand that he was offending me, but I failed miserably.
Maybe what I should do is have another "neighborhood trash clean up day" and only invite those I know who are: dreadlocked hippies, black, hispanic, asian or are in any way different from whitey over there. While he is outside staring at all of them, I will bust into his house, take his TV and DVD player, sell them and donate the money to the NAACP! That would get him! (just kidding of course, but it's nice to fantasize about)
