They used to shoot our car windows out, screaming we were nigger lovers," and that the Phelps law firm made up one-third of the state's federal docket of civil rights cases.[17]
    Phelps took cases on behalf of African-American clients alleging racial discrimination by school systems, and a predominantly black American Legion post which had been raided by police, alleging racially based police abuse.[18] Phelps' law firm obtained settlements for some clients.[19] Phelps also sued President Ronald Reagan over Reagan's appointment of a U.S. ambassador to the Vatican, alleging this violated separation of church and state. The case was dismissed by the U.S. district court.[19][20] Phelps' law firm, staffed by himself and family members also represented non-white Kansans in discrimination actions against Kansas City Power and Light, Southwestern Bell, and the Topeka City Attorney, and represented two female professors alleging discrimination in Kansas universities.[17]
    In the 1980s, Phelps received awards from the Greater Kansas City Chapter of Blacks in Government and the Bonner Springs branch of the NAACP, for his work on behalf of black clients.[19]

    or the store is, and you got caught in the cross hairs. but if they're wearing too much wouldn't they be able to smell before they went in as well?

    Nah. It's like when people smoke, or have fourteen cats. They're so used to the smell that they don't notice it anymore.

    An INTJ coworker just got put onto a one-on-one interview with somebody at the last minute. He went into a melt down and stormed off, and everybody else was confused. I knew why, I apologize on behalf of the world, introverts.
