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.
