The woman being racist is merely an assumption, we can not be certain until we have had a dialogue…
Ron van Middendorp

Well I think that’s a lovely naive point of view, albeit one I cannot ascribe to, having lived 50 years in this country as a white woman. The glaring menace with which this white woman stared at this Black man does not, sadly, sickeningly, surprise me. As a WW of privilege — based solely on my race, not socioeconomic status — I’ve been privy to the ugly that’s rampant within the white power base. To assume that she was NOT staring at this man simply because of his color is, I’m afraid, misguided.
