You Bourgeois Families Please Practice Some Tolerance…REALLY I’m a Great Person IF You really take the time to stop with the intolerance!
Thanksgiving! That wonderful holiday where you get to sit around the table enjoying the family & friends…….NOT! I don’t have that. SO this year I volunteered my time at a Catholic Church soup kitchen serving the Thanksgiving day meal. I had fun. However I was a bit peeved by the behavior of a White Father who was having a panic over his little girl who was hanging up (or trying to she was too short to reach the hook on the wall) in a substandard area at the top of a stairwell. It just so happens that I was in the same cramped area digging around for a pen to make notes. Since this was my first year doing this volunteer work ( because in previous years I always seem to miss out due to there already being enough people to volunteer and I wait till the last minute.) So this year I was able to volunteer.
Getting back to the overcrowded stairwell. The little girl who was White & maybe 10 or 11 was struggling to hang up her coat. I would have helped but in this day & age I think not! Well the little girls Father was all in a panic he yelled from the kitchen “Sarah you come out of there”! Meaning the coat area. I happen to be in there too. I immediately noticed the panic in the mans voice. It bothered me. White men please stop acting nervous you all love to jump to conclusions over us Blacks. I plan on having a discussion with the director over this issue and I know exactly what I will be discussing. White Fathers if you are this nervous why bring your family to a homeless soup kitchen to begin with & just celebrate Thanksgiving at your home in Suburbia? I also now know that I was the ONLY black person male or female who was among the 35 volunteers at the soup kitchen. I know for a FACT that White men despise Black women. I’m not stupid. I tried to talk to my Mother but she cut me short as usual to say that she had to get back to her cooking. I’m so sick & tired of how I’m treated and it’s going to end here. I have a very awful feeling that I may end up like so many other Blacks.
