One evening I was leaving work from the office building. I was headed eastbound on 16th and L streets in NW, Washington, D.C. As it was evening time it was already dark outside. Other people were bustling also leaving work or tending to other matters. As I was walking, a dark-skinned, 6 foot-plus older black male (say pushing 60 years old) walked towards me while I was still on the sidewalk. He appeared from the street as a pedestrian from out of no where on my left facing the opposite direction and with a loud, condescending voice yelled to my face Hallelujah!, while looking me up and down (mind you I am always in hijab, long skirts or loose trousers) with a dirty smirk. The dark-skinned black male simultaneously did this odd bend at a 45 degree angle to ensure I knew he was referring to me. I was tired and solely yelled “nigger.” He immediate stood upright and began to walk away. It was then I realized that a Caucasian male was walking behind me in the same direction. I am unsure whether the demented, dark-skinned black male stopped merely because I referred to him as to what he actually was or he was embarrassed that he was called that by another person of color IN THE PRESENCE of a white male. I believe it was a combination of both. It was disgusting that someone who appeared possibly old as a grandfather would attempt to disrupt a cover Sunni Muslim leaving work and minding her own business.
Today’s black male is the problem. Black “Christians” today are the problem, they are a public nuisance and a public health menace.
The caricature of the hyper-sexualized black brute has become self-fulfilling prophecy. The true Black men of the past would be so ashamed and disgusted at what a core group of black American “Christian” males have morphed into the past several decades:
On an occasion I was in Prince George’s County I ventured to a Shell gas station off Riverdale Road which leads to a split by-pass of Princess Garden Parkway in the late morning. As I began fueling a Black woman appeared to be there alone began yelling at a black man for propositioning her. Her tone of voice was wrought with anger and disgust but was also characterized as an intent to alert bystanders that she may need help. She stated, “You don’t talk to no female that way!” As more witnesses continued to look upon the situation the black man looked guilty and began retreating yelling “All I said is how she was doin’!”
None of the bystanders, including myself were close enough to be privy to what he said. Whatever it was she was offended, not interested and he wouldn’t let her be.
However, let’s take this black male at his claim that he simply asked how she was doing. Most able bodied black people know this is more than a simple query into a woman’s day or what some may deem a mere flirt (as you know black men are the biggest “slick talking, justifying every bad act they do everyday con artists). When a black man says this to a black woman he is really stating “I want to *expletive* you and you BETTER acquiesce.” This is why the black woman felt threatened because he refused to take her no, her attempt to ignore or simply get away from a total hedonistic stranger as her response.
Remember Joey from the hit sitcom ‘Friends’ and when he asked “How YOU doin’?” and everyone knew what he was up to–the difference is that he didn’t corner the woman in a small space or block her freedom of movement until he got the answer he wanted (which by the way is illegal and deemed ‘false imprisonment’).
This black male wanted to force his lustful desire on a black woman stranger who he viewed as his property simply because of her skin pigmentation. This ignorant black brute demanded what did not belong to him. This is very common street/sexual harassment by black males to Black women. At least she brought immediate attention to it and got away from the predator in a safe manner. Now just imagine how many Black women who are not as fortunate.
