A Black woman and a Black man were sitting in a Starbucks in Seattle, minding their business when an irate white man called the Black woman a “n-gger bitch,” and then spat coffee on her. The onlookers sat there doing nothing.
Remember a while back when the story of the Black woman touching the white guy’s dreads went viral? Well, here is a story of a Black woman being literally spat on and called the n-word, think this will go viral?…
This story is reminiscent of this incident that I posted about a while ago.
This type of thing happens to Black folk every day. What is interesting to me is that the white male targeted the Black female, not the Black male. My mother said one time that “years ago the black man was the most hated person in America, now I think the Black woman is the most hated person in America.”
Maybe she has a point. I’m thinking that he targeted the Black woman because he was a.) afraid to target the black man b.) he knew that a woman would be less likely to fight him back c.) stereotypes portray black women as masculine, so he felt justified in assaulting her.
What do you think?
