My name is Boogie, Doctor T V Boogie that is. I was born on a cold winter's day in an industrial city just north of Canada called Detroit Michigan. If you ever want to win a few dollars at a bar, just ask someone to name a major US city north of Canada that is not in Alaska. They can't. I just did.
"It's a Chinese Big Boy Restaurant, stay away, they cook dog meat."
Yes, my grandparents were racially opposed to anyone who didn't have pinkish skin and round eyes, but then, they didn't like most white people either so I didn't think much of it until I got older and knew there had to be a better way, a Bodhisattva Way.
When I was about seven or eight, there was a hit television series called Kung Fu. All the kids loved it. It was about this half-Chinese/half-Western man who was raised in China and came to the USA to find his lost brother during the Wild, Wild, West days. He was a real badass, and the kids on the playground pretended to be Kung Fu by kicking each other. I didn't understand it, I wondered, don't they see that he doesn't want to fight? That he wants to avoid fighting and be peaceful! That was the Kung Fu who inspired me.
