Peeped a really disgusting reader letter over at The Dirty this week:
Nik, so first let me say- I am a college student, double majoring at a university that I will not mention in a city that I will also not mention because I have quickly noticed this is a national/world wide issue. I also work in a bar on the weekends doing bottle service and I am used to drunk guys hitting on me all night long so it is not like I am overly sensitive to this issue. With that said… It makes me absolutely sick to my stomach the way that thuggish and to be honest ghetto black guys feel entitled and holler at white girls. It is f*cking disgusting. I go to a school in a coastal city, and I can’t even walk from my car to a building without feeling like some f*cking black dude is going to harass me. So I just wanted to make a public service announcement…. If you are a f*cking ghetto ass dude and you think that smacking your lips and spitting game at me is going to get your nasty *ss purple crayon in this– you are crazy. So Nik, here is my question to you… What the hell is the problem? Are there seriously attractive white girls who give into this sh*t? Where do they live? Can we slap the jungle juice out of their system? Someone has to be to blame for this. I know tons of girls who are made so uncomfortable by things like this, and the issue is only growing. Nik please help.
Unsurprisingly, the site owner’s reply was pretty simple: “I think you are racist.” And while there was nothing surprising about the email either, it’s sad that this idiot broad (who is, obviously, a racist…and I have my doubts about the quality of that “university” based on her writing AND the fact that she thought a gossip blogger could help her with her ‘issue’) doesn’t understand that her Black female classmates are likely made to feel uncomfortable themselves when approached by thuggish guys. It’s called street harassment and sisters suffer more of it at the hands of men who look like them than anyone else. There is an “entitlement” issue with men of all races when it comes to approaching women…I’ve had terrible experiences with lower and middle class White men talking to me like I was a piece of meat. This isn’t Black man’s territory only.
I’m sure of you are wondering why even highlight this waste of flesh and bone, but its yet another unfortunate reminder of the glory of post-racial America. It’s amazing that those who have not suffered the transgressions of racism are still so filled with anger and hatred. Can you imagine the sort of paradigm shift it would take to get a woman like this to understand why those men behave as they do and how class/education inform those behaviors? God bless the USA. Ugh.
