This is another form of anti-Black racism we endure on a nearly daily basis everywhere: White ppl making demands of us with the full presupposition that their desire, will and whim at all times has preeminence over ours...followed by their ire and vindictiveness if we dont submit
It's always cloaked in language of "courtesy". "Be courteous." "Iasked nicely." That's the rationalization, the pressure you feel. But it has NOTHING to do with courtesy and everything to do with White Supremacy.
It's not the spirit of courtesy. Ion care how insincerely they grin when they make the "request". Like a discerning Black apostolic church altar worker, Black folks can see that spirit a mile off. It's the spirit of Jim Crow.
