I had in mind a blog to type but as I was out taking care of business today, preparing to move out of my apartment, I was waiting for my ride from a mall out in the suburbs.
Now , I was very weary of even going out there b/c there are gangs out in this suburb. But the someone who ended up bothering me was a ‘White man’.
The reason? I am outside waiting on my ride, looking longingly into the malls public library window wishing like hell it would reopen. None of the local libraries still aren’t open due to Covid. I had my mask hanging by one of my ears & I was outside for crying out loud.
Here comes the Gringo man saying the following:
“If your going inside the library you’d better be wearing that mask” and he barked this at me like I’m a child.
Now unless your : Slow, retarded, brain damaged, or living in a cave anyone who knows anything in this local area KNOWS that the damn public library has not opened to the public since March of this year! So basically he knew damned well that the library wasn’t open.
Told him to move along & to leave me alone.
Of course he did not.
What is it with the majority of Caucasians that they feel they have the right to speak aggressively to a Black woman like she were a child?
When he kept up, I got loud and told him to shove off until I decided to walk away. You White men. I don’t like any of you! Your too arrogant.
The pudgy snowman kept up with taunting me like it was funny.
I really wanted to give him a nice dose of my pepper spray. But I didn’t want to. I walked away talking about his ass all the way back to the entrance of the mall were it was safe!
White men, it is never a good idea to display your macho attitude, leave that overbearing intimidating authoritarian male shit at home.
When your out in public ACT LIKE A GENTLEMAN! You don’t provoke someone. You mind your own business. Your in a world of adults and as such you never , ever, talk down nor talk in an aggressive tones to a grown woman Black or otherwise. I wished he would have pulled that shit on the Hispanic or some other Black Sisters! We women of color just don’t play that.
There is such a thing as being a bully over this mask, now once one is indoors YES you wear a mask. Outside, its kind of neutral and those things are kind of hard to breath so yes it is alright or more aptly take off the mask at your own risk or discretion! But a person has no right to bully anyone over a mask. Common sense would dictate that if my mask was hanging off of one ear, wouldn’t it then stand to reason I was wearing it? But this man wanted to bother me, he saw a Black woman and saw his opportunity to attempt to talk down to me! I let him know loud & clear that I wasn’t okay with how he talked to me. Of course when you stand up for yourself basically what most men love to do is taunt you more. Men listen up, you really need to be careful who you talk crazy to. Pick who you bully very carefully but with the insane climate that this country is in? Do you think it’s wise to bark in aggressive tones to a Black woman when other Black men & women are dying at the hands of White police? Please take time to think on that one. Listen, all we want is a little respect and not have you come off as the Gestapo!
Covid Mask bullies your not the police so quit policing others and just mind your own business!
