And the only sport Ross himself would be tall enough to enjoy is one involving a jockey, a lawn jockey
It tells what it's like for a black family to move in where the only thing of color is the lawn jockey
In another incident, many people were offended by a black lawn jockey
-- long a symbol of racial insensitivity -- in Ballenger's front yard.
He was called an Uncle Tom and an "angry Oreo," was pictured in a KKK hood as an "Ethnic Cleanser" in the Oakland Tribune, and was called "a lawn jockey
for the ruling class" by a prominent, white male supporter of affirmative action.
Even bigger was the surprise that awaited FBI agents April 1 when they moved to seize Tobeler's property and found not tractors but a warehouse filled with airplane parts, lawn jockeys
, minerals and just about anything and everything else.
But I've also seen them strolling among pedestrians in shopping malls, roosting on the outstretched arms of lawn jockeys
and standing on window ledges at McDonald's drive-thrus, staring right at startled customers.
