— 1/? Things To Remember (via barbieandken)
I’m not even a man but I’m a black woman and I’ve experienced this on the subway, elevators, etc. And I ALWAYS want to do that “boo!” Part.
People do the same thing to me but it’s not race related. I’m the nicest dude ever but every time these stuck up rich people think I’m gonna rob em just because of the way I look. I’m totally gonna boo a rich douche the next time I get dirty looks in an elevator. Hahaha!
You can keep bitching about poor people “pulling themselves” up by their bootstraps, but they can’t pull it up if they have no shoes to begin with.
The same applies to all marginalized and underprivileged groups.
Stories that are never seen or heard of by the general population.
