This was a wonderful, and scary story. I was caught off guard with the man who complimented you to disarm you, then go ballistic with his true intentions. This is so real and so scary for me. I’m so afraid of having some crack pot White guy doing something similar. It’s an intentional search for a victim…an unaccompanied Black woman, vulnerable and unprotected. These types of men already do this online to us, but to have it done in person is just scary. Be careful, stay curious, and be open to learning from others. History is a powerful predictor of our future if we only take the time to review it. I appreciate you sharing your experiences as you show interest in learning about other cultures, religions, traditions, hate and prejudice.
