Thank you so much for responding to him. After 3 years of nonsense like this I simply don’t have the energy to waste arguing with White men about why I need to have my needs accommodated. It’s such a ridiculous argument.

He should have just said what he really felt but took the long, wordy way to get to the point.

Black needs don’t matter. Black people shouldn’t ask for anything. How dare we ask for anything? Forget whatever the writer said, just make sure she knows Black people don’t matter. The message was clear. Men like Blake believe they are so smart. What they don’t understand we spend our entire lives dealing with these microaggressions. Nothing new under the racist sun. We continue to persist, in spite of.
