Sis! I just don’t even know what to say. What is that rude thing about? We get called animals for doing the same things White people do (including being rude) but they see nothing wrong with their own bad behavior. I just don’t get it. And that violating personal space touching hair and stuff, it’s really annoying, but I stopped getting pissed about that because if I may have been the only person they felt they could ask to touch.

Sometimes, we gotta bite the bullet in order to help others gain understanding. I just don’t understand wanting to examine other people without understanding personal boundaries. It’s almost as if they never got the memo how non-White people feel about the violation. That’s privilege. We could never get away with touching White children. Never.
