How many times have you been asked by a white person or a pitiful victim, "Tell me. Really. How are YOU a victim of racism right now? You can't say exactly how, can you? Quit making excuses." Well, I have seen, heard, and been asked that question scores of times. And, due to my OTSD (Ongoing Traumatic Stress Disorder), I have often struggled to recall recent incidents...So, I've been making a list and I'm sure it's just a small percentage of the incidents. Then, I thought, "If just ten percent of black people challenged racist(white supremacists) in the small ways they mistreat us, AT THE TIME OF THE EVENT we'd have better recall." Even if we only challenge it when doing so is not gonna put at risk our job or our life, we could put a serious dent in their morale. I mean, a lot of the motivation for them to work so hard at their places of paid employment is the fun they get out of knowing how easy it is to continually treat us, as Yellow Manny said, "like trash." Racists (white supremacists) get depressed when its not easy to mistreat their victims. They tend to lose their motivation. It's a morale buster.
