Today after school while I was waiting for my mom to pick me up, I was standing outside by myself. Well after about 15 minutes of waiting, three black guys came out of the building I was standing in front of. I had no idea they were behind me, so I was pretty startled when one of them came right up to me and demanded, “What kind of attitude is that?”
I looked around and made sure he was talking to me, and then looked back at him confused. He repeated the question and his two buddies laughed.
I’d say they were in their mid twenties, big beefy looking guys so naturally I was pretty intimidated and backed away because they were right in my face by that time. This one guy just was staring at me and then he shook his head started to walk away and then stopped and turned around and said “That attitude…what’s up with that?” I told him I didn’t know what he was talking about and he replied in disgust, “That bandana around your forehead…who do you think you are?” something along those lines (but I remember he did point out my bandana that I wore, rolled up as a headband in my hair). Then he just gave me a dirty look and walked away.
…am I missing something? Is wearing a bandana against the law for white girls or something? I didn’t even have the thing across my forehead like the bastard suggested. After that my mom drove up and I told her what he had said and I was pretty shaken up. He hardly said anything to me but the repulsion that just creeped into me afterwards made me sick. And they could have easily beaten me down if I back talked them, which I am now kicking myself for, not doing. I feel like such a weakling.
But even worse how retarded and idiotic is an action such as this? Showing digust because I’m not coloured and yet I wear a bandana.
What an image shocker…yeah. Any opinions on this…?
