I'm back. Still don't feel like writing yet. Instead, let's play a game.
Walking out of the Chipotle at 19th and M, I ran into an argument. A white man was accosting a black woman. It was clear that they weren't acquaintances. This was made even clearer when they stormed off in opposite directions.
All I heard the man say was, "That's another example of African-American entitlement!" This was, of course, what caused the storm off.
So, in what context is that statement not racist? I'd love to hear the best guesses in the comments. I highly doubt that two strangers decided to have a spirited debate on affirmative action on a street corner.
The best guess regarding what these two were yelling about wins the best prize I can afford: my hearty congratulations.
