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.
