The great thing about the Expo, is they have a kid's area. This made the whole trip worth it.

Also, earlier in the day, there was a chat with Fox Sports columnist Jason Whitlock. Jason (jokingly) refers to himself as the race expert. He hates racism, but also hates it when racism is used as a crutch or excuse. He has never shied away from talking about race, and feels if people would not be afraid to discuss it, then we can move forward getting past it. So, all the questions he was getting for football related (Aaron Rodgers, Tim Tebow, blah, blah, blah). So, I figured I would throw something different at him. Something that I have always wondered about, and that I knew Jason would give an honest answer:
I have been a huge fan of the Dave Matthews Band for 15+ years. This was my question to Jason:
"The Dave Matthews Band originally consisted of 3 black guys and 2 white guys. Why don't more black people listen to the Dave Matthews Band?" - Brian Bugey to Jason Whitlock
And sure enough, he responded:
"Not our kind of music. Generalizing. But we like R&B.... Although I love Bon Jovi... one of my all-time favorites. Slippery When Wet." - Jason Whitlock's answer.
I thought it was cool that he answered that.
