THIS POST HAS TURNED VERY UGLY…THE INSITE AND ALL BLACK MEN ARE BEING ATTACKED AS A RESULT OF SOME FEMALES WHO BELIEVE THIS IS AN INTERNAL ISSUE TO BE DISCUSSED AMONG BLACKS ONLY. ALSO ONE COMMENTER SAID I WAS DISRESPECTFUL FOR ALLOWING A COMMENTER TO CALL THE WOMAN IN THIS POST A BLACK B—-! WHAT’S YOUR TAKE?
It’s one of those odd things the Insite noticed and had to write about. I was in the northeast Houston covering a murder. I decided to go to the local Chevron gas station and buy a water. I ran into two other people who were walking in at the same time. One was a female who just got out of her car. The other was a guy who was walking in separately. The guy grabbed the door for the female. She walked in without saying a word – not even thank you. By the time I was walking to check out at the front counter both strangers were already at the counter as well. The guy was looking at the lady as he stood along side of her at the register. He then smiled at her. To my suprise and everyone in the store she turned around and said, “what are you looking at ho as nigga.” She then rolled her eyes and walked out of the store. The guy looked super embarassed. I was like floored. This was the same guy who politely opened the door for her. I just couldn’t believe that response coming out of the mouth of a woman. If she didn’t feel comfortable saying thank you – she should’ve just smiled and left. Maybe it’s a woman thing. I just hope I never get that kind of response. I may just stop holding doors open for ladies I don’t know. What do you think of this situation? I thought it was clear lack of civility in the hood!
