so I had to use public transportation to transport myself to an alternate location. Such things do happen.
Being an observant person I observed.
There was a chubby black woman who was allowed to have her tiny black dog take up a seat next to her in the front of the bus. She was just chubby not obesed to death-but a big girl. She was happily prattling on to a black man sitting by her-who was clearly a stranger. He got off and she wished him a “blessed day“.
I hear a lot of black people say that expression to each other and think it is so nice. I wish I had the freedom to express myself that way. Or shout out “I love you white man!” like I have heard black women shout at black men in a not creepy but very affirming way. Or even say “whad up my cracka” in a familial way that every other race is allowed to enjoy. I thought to myself this seems like a very pleasant black woman.
I was sitting next to an older asian woman with dyed red hair and very western clothing but clearly an immigrant. Asian lady smiled at black woman’s dog. Black woman held up one of her many ringed- and I mean rings upon rings upon rings that Dante would not even address because it was such a tacky sh1t-show.
Blessed-day black lady responded by telling Asian red-head “Don’t you be staring at my dog!”
Asian Lucille Ball responded by saying “Vely cute!” clearly not getting it and praising the dog.
Maybe our black hostess treat was afraid Asian lady wanted her dog for lunch.
Our blessed-black lady raised her voice and admonished Asian Lucy for pretending not to understand.
“everyone else on this bus heard me and understood me. don’t be staring at muh dawg! don’t play your games with me!”
I thought she has a point. Asian lady smiles and nods. bus driver drives. I cannot remember if bus driver was black or asian but it is 99% of the time one or the other. I guess whites don’t know how to drive buses but only know how to revel in their homeless privilege.
Blessing black lady has everyone on edge. I look up at well-dressed white man sitting across from me-he stares intently at his phone. Blessing black lady is clearly dissapoint as no one is fueling her fire. She holds her finger up again and aggressively tells Asian-lucy:
