This past week, on three seperate occasions; white people have interrupted my conversation, while talking to co-workers. It was obvious that I was talking to them, however, each time; it was as if I put a microphone in the face of total strangers asking their opinions. And here’s the kicker: they didn’t even seem to acknwledge our irriation–it was extremely obvious.
Why? Why? WHY?!? Do white people think that when Black people are talking; somehow, they have the temerity to insinuate themselves into the discussion? Do they not know this is rude, intrusive, and downright–DISRESPECTFUL? Frankly, some would say that it’s racist. The nerve to interjuect their white supremacy on you with such arrogant impunity.
I’m a bold woman, and I have told more than a couple to MIND THEIR BUSINESS. No one was talking to them.
The audacity of this just gauls me.
I looked at both my co-workers–and you know how Black people acknowledge a truth without even having to go into explanation? That was the reaction. It’s a daily occurrence…and I’m tired of it.
The next time it happens, somebody is going to get a RUDE Wake-up call:
One day…I’m going to punch one in the mouth.
As an aside: Just look at how some white folks think about Black people when they are amongst themselves:http://dailykenn.blogspot.com/2012/04/is-negro-fatigue-sweeping-white-america.html
