MOVE BITCH: NYT Writer Accuses White Women Of Racism Because They Don’t Move For Him
Sometimes you read things and you wonder if it’s real life. Surely, people don’t think that this. No one can have so much time on their hands that these are the things they take note of. Greg Howard is a writer for the New York Times and did I mention he’s black? Because he is black, by the way. Just making sure you know he’s black. It’s ridiculous, ‘look beyond race but pay attention to my race’. In his daily life, Greg does something called walking. Greg is a very brave man for walking through the streets of New York, especially since it is filled with mean white women that don’t move out of the way.
These horrible white women clock that Greg is black so they purposely try to take up as much space as possible.
I’ve found that most people walk courteously — but that white women, at least when I’m in their path, do not.
Savages. He goes on to say that white women are ‘buried in their phones’ and walk in groups which forces him off the sidewalk sometimes.
In these instances, when I’m standing in the street or in the dirt as a white woman strides past, broad-shouldered and blissful, I turn furious. I turn furious because in these instances I feel small.
You know what I do when someone doesn’t move out of the way? I don’t move out of the way either. These women he is describing just sound like assholes or New Yorkers, which are basically the same thing. I understand that men don’t want to slam their shoulders into people but come on. If it’s such a big issue for you, then make the bitches move. But accusing these women of racism is crazy.
Do they refuse to acknowledge me because they’ve been taught that they should fear black men, and that any acknowledgment of black men can invite danger?…Whenever I ask white women I know why they don’t reroute for black men, they invariably express ignorance.
Mate, see a therapist.
It wasn’t enough he called white women racist. The author ends the article talking about a conversation he had with an Asian friend where he asked him if he had the same experiences as him.
He said no. For whatever reason, white women see him just fine. The people who don’t, he said, are white men.
Fuck white people.
