Thank you for sharing your story and I’m sorry for the scar the interaction caused. I was enlightened as a woman about what men must go through going throughout their day. How many times do you cross streets so not to offend or scare White women? How many times do you take stairs instead of riding an elevator? How many times do you decide not to speak or make eye contact with women and girls because they fear a man wants something from them sexually? How many times do you go out of your way to make a White woman feel safe?

There is no rest of the weary. We must put salve on our wounds and keep it moving. Stay strong my brothers. Thanks for reading.
