So….

It’s impossible to talk with people about the problems in the black community if they’re not black

Lustrous.

A man in the grocery store line today approached me and said, “Sir, when I first saw you I was extremely attracted to you, but then I noticed that you are a boy. How… I mean, why do you dress so provocatively?”

I responded, “Well, in today’s world the majority of the straight male race view women as objects, or something that belongs to them. I dress provocatively because it attracts the attention of men in a sexual and OBJECTIVE way. However, when realized that I am actually male, they often become confused, disgusted, upset or all of the above. By inflicting this minor emotional damaged upon the ego of a man raised by twisted societal gender norms, maybe, just maybe the individual will think twice before viewing another woman with an objective attitude and sense of belonging. No woman, belongs to ANYONE. Male or female, the equality of human beings needs to be a priority. It is something worth dressing up for.”

I AM NOT KIDDING. The woman behind me, the female cashier, the old lady bagging groceries and the woman in front of me who was talking on the phone STOPPED, …. and proceeded to gasp and clap. The man shook my hand, told me to have a blessed day and then said, “excuse me ladies, I need to visit my daughter.”

…. I was shaking by the time I walked out of the store.

So…..

I’ve come to notice that a few of my friends who are white just don’t understand black perspective. How could they be expected to? The experience is unique to blacks.
These same white people say:
“It’s not a race thing anymore, it’s class.”
“There’s a black president now, black people really can do anything.”
“I like black people, just not niggers, you know what I mean.”
“Stop doing to others what they do to you. Be the bigger person.”
“They make black people look bad but you’re ok.”
And I tell them all the same thing, you don’t know what you’re talking about. If you’re white, know that your opinion on blacks/black culture is irrelevant to any person of color. Keep it to yourself.
