Street harassed at TechWorld Post Office, Washington, D.C.

During the time I worked in Washington, D.C. I would sometimes use the Post Office located at the TechWorld Building in N.W., Washington, D.C..

A pattern emerged where Black male “Christian” security guard(s) would literally jump into my face and block my access to the descending escalator to the Post Office. These happened several times and they would snicker “Hi, how you doin?’

I would continue to walk and ignore them and noticed there were two Black male security guards, also in uniform seated at the desks near the main entry scan if you wre entering the main portion of the building. These onlookers in uniformed stared at me as if this was normal and that I was supposed to acquiesce to this unwanted behavior. Not one told their co workers to stop or to leave me alone. Nor did the perpetrators bother or hit on any of the white women who were on their way to work or otherwise passing by.

After my ignoring them did not have the effect I sought, I later contacted the Administration and was given information about the contracting business responsible for their hire. So, I ended up speaking to a supervisor who was ranked a sergeant and let him know how his subordinates were conducting themselves.

I said “They aren’t bothering any of those white women walking by. Here I am covered, a professional and they are calling out to me like that. If I was a white woman they wouldn’t be bothering me.” Granted, the sergeant listened and seemed to agree, he let me know he would handle it.

During the time period I was working in that area of D.C. and using that post office it did not happen again.

Black males in their capacity of employment of branded businesses, sexually street harass customers, by standers and co workers ALL the time. Do not wonder why businesses do not want to hire your licentious species.
