PASSIVE MICRO-AGGRESSION, IMPLICIT BIAS & KARMA (a short true “_______ while being black” story)

A woman puts her laptop and coat on the next table, looks right past me, and asks the white woman on the other side of me to watch her stuff! Karma is funny. The white woman left moments after she went to stand in line! I smiled at her when she returned, and saw the vacant seat next to me.

    (Found your site accidentally via CPS Twitter… But there are no accidents.) Anyway, yes a White woman once looked around at all the brown folks around me, stood to find the bathroom and then asked (light-skinned me) yours truly to please watch her bag.

    Know where this happened?? Anotha Level @ Lit-X !!!
