Had that happen to me too. Always cracks us up, but it still hurts. White men can dine with AK’s and they are fine, no fear, no threat. We just walk with Brown skin in a store and we must be followed or White people must flee to the other side of the street because they’ve been taught from the shoot we’re a threat. Black is bad.

This is a perfect illustration of how Whiteness rationalizes its bad behavior. Thank you for reading and adding to the list Julie. There are so many things we can add. So many.😭
