This is what living while Black in America means

The clothes you wear out, whether or not to go for a run, where to travel, how to behave in public... Living while Black in America means second-guessing small, everyday decisions.

    Wow. This is so true it hurts. The only thing I've learned about small boutiques is I go in and touch everything. I lead security all around the store. Then, I walk out without buying anything. I've been in large department stores in New York where security was so intent on watching me that they didn't notice the white people around me shoplifting.

    Every one of us should keep ID on themselves! And do what you are told to do, from cops only!

    It's all because the common corruption culture between black folks, before you deduce in subconscious way that I am racist to say that, blaming the black community for not exploiting the chances of being in u.s. (which is dream for millions )to develop and getting rid of father issues, drug issues, gang issues...etc must be the dominant common propaganda instead of easily saying" oh, because I am black". Race will always be considered in conscious or subconscious way and must be confronted but not in this way, thanks .

    In AmeriKKKa, there is over 400 years of DOCUMENTED Torture, Rape, Murder, Genocide, Violence, TERRORISM committed by Europeans... Yet Blacks are labelled as having violent tendencies⁉️😡

    Where I live you can get fined from the age of 14 if you can’t identify yourself. Driver’s license or id card. Better have it on you...👍🏼 And keep your distance as a man walking behind any woman, regardless of colour.

    One comment though ... surely any man walking behind a woman at night would keep their distance!

    That's not a free courtesy, that's a fear country. Unbelievable! Unacceptable. People shouldn't be afraid how to live their lives because of their skin tone.

    This is so very sad. I wish it wasn't so hard to people of color, just to live their lives normally. I dislike the state of Florida, because of how I saw white people treat people of color down there. Being from up north and a military dependent I was shocked by what I saw. To me there was no reason to intimidate anyone because of their skin color. I was not raised like that, to try and hurt another human being. I hope for the day that each human being can feel safe to walk on any street in this planet.
