Here’s another interesting news clip. This one explores the black person negotiating a White World.
In The Face of GOP Foolery, “The Look” Speaks Loudly
As Judge Jackson ascends to the Supreme Court after a trying confirmation process, The Grio’s Sophia Nelson and The New York Times’s Charles Blow discuss what “the look” is and how Black America uses it as a tool to navigate through corporate America and in dealing with ridiculous situations where a true reaction would tarnish one’s reputation – or doom one’s career.
I was especial impressed with Sophia Nelson words after 6:00, makes an introspective whitie wonder about how well I could have put up with the inhumane behavior and remarks (people of color) need to contend with every single day they try to negotiate the white man’s world.
These sort of things nice white boys, like me, never need to consider as we blunder our way through life.
