Irresponsible White Women

5 05 2008

Sunday mornings in Spring are my favorite time of year, assuming I’m not hung over from the night before. On these mornings, I wake up before dawn and go running around the monuments on the Mall as part of my training regimen for the dance season.

Figure 1: Ah, the serenity of it all

There’s nothing more relaxing than my 9 mile Sunday morning run. The smell of dew and flowers in the air, birds chirping, squirrels and chipmunks everywhere, mature trees, the illuminated marble beauty of the monuments, the red sunrise…the terrified shriek of the inattentive white woman I just spooked.

This is the third motherfucking goddamn time this shit has happened to me, and for some reason it’s always involved a white woman being somewhere she shouldn’t be at a time she shouldn’t be there engaged in some activity that just screams “EASY FUCKING TARGET!” I’ll be running, usually in the dark just before dawn or just after dusk, and some white chick will be walking alone in a secluded and extremely dark area where she is talking VERY loudly on her cellphone and paying attention to absolutely dick.

Figure 2: A danger to herself and everyone else

Next thing you know, I’m within six feet of this fucking idiot, she finally hears my footsteps, turns around to see a large black man running up behind her, SCREAMS!!!!, throws all her shit up in the air, and sends me sprinting away from the area before some cop assumes I’m a rapist and I wind up getting shot in the back like that dude in Glory.

One such incident occurred while I was in college and I was running in the dimly lit corridor that connects a parking lot with one of the residence halls. It happened again when I was running in Rockville some damn where. And finally, it happened yesterday – and this one was by far the worst.

During the previous two incidents, I a.) was jogging and b.) saw the dumbass chick before the shit happened. This time, however, I was in a full sprint down the length of the Reflecting Pool (which is lined with mature shade trees and is, therefore, VERY dark) and I didn’t see or hear the woman. I’m about halfway down the pool when I suddenly hear “AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

I think I’m under attack by a whino or a homeless dude, so I respond to this reflexively by shrieking out a war whoop, drawing the small dagger I keep strapped around my forearm during my nighttime runs, and charging in her direction (thanks Dad). When I finally make out who she is, she is frozen in fear…but with the cellphone still stuck up against her empty head.

I stop, stare at her in disbelief, sheathe the dagger, grunt angrily, and jog off.

Figure 3: Police composite sketch of me fleeing the scene

I will never understand why white women (and asian and black women, to a lesser extent) feel they have both the need and the right to walk around alone in the dark while chatting away on their cellphones. The three spooky negro incidents I’ve mentioned above renders the argument that women are master multitaskers completely fucking false – when a woman is on her phone, she completely loses all peripheral focus even if she’s in danger and has ample warning*.

I can hear the counterarguments already: “BUT CHRIS! WE’RE ON THE PHONE SO THAT IF SOMETHING HAPPENS TO US, SOMEONE WILL KNOW!”

1.) You shouldn’t be in that situation in the first place. There is no reason to be walking around at night in unlit areas by yourself in a major fucking city**

2.) Your friend on the other end of the line can’t help you. If that friend didn’t immediately say “GET THE FUCK OFF THE PHONE SO YOU CAN PAY ATTENTION” and hang up, then your friend is as dumb as you are. As she hears your cries for help while you’re being mugged in an alley somewhere, she’ll run around her dorm for ten minutes hysterically yelling “OMIGOD DOES ANYBODY KNOW THE NUMBER TO 911?!?!?!”

Ladies, especially you white ladies, put down the phone and pick up your ears and your pepper spray. Better yet, stop walking around in the dark at night by yourself for no fucking reason. Stop going to frat parties and accepting drinks handed to you by a guy that’s hiding a bottle of pills behind his toga. Stop needlessly putting yourselves in dangerous situations and acting surprised when bad shit happens to you. And most importantly…

STOP RUINING MY SUNDAY MORNING RUN.

*The Reflecting Pool is about 200 yards shy of being 1/2 mile long. The woman was spooked right at mid-length, meaning she had 1/4 mile of my hard breathing and heavy stomping to hear me…if she hadn’t been on the fucking phone.

**I know I’m guilty of this too – after all, I was also running around by the Reflecting Pool in the dark. I am also not a frail, inattentive, and easily spooked white woman. I am 6’3″ tall, I weigh 190lbs, I am already running, and I am armed with knives. I’m not the type of person anyone wants to rape or mug. I can run anywhere I want.

I’m sorry this happened to you…and that it keeps happening to you…and that it probably won’t stop happening to you.

But I am glad that you can take this annoying experience and turn it into something funny we can read.

Your blog is ridiculously funny and I am never disappointed when I read it.

Hope you have a good run tomorrow.

And people wonder why the first place police go to look for a missing white woman is a park…It’s like the horror movie white chicks, always somewhere dark when they shouldn’t be there…oops..and then they fall…*stab*stab*..they’re dead.

i can’t really laugh at this one cause i’m always on my phone after dark.
but i’m normally walking from the car to the house
which isnt really that far.

but i (at least) pay attention to my surroundings
and give the occassional ice grill to whomever happens to walk by

This one is great. I’ve had people cross the street away from me, and then cross back for fear of walking past the scary black guy. Two things:

1. I hate rapists. If I could, I would form a National Rapist & Child Molester Hunters’ Club, in which we would hunt, torture, and/or kill rapists and child molesters for hefty bounties and bragging rights.

2. 9 miles? I haven’t run that far in about two summers…my longest since is 7. I need to step up my game 😦

Could be worse. At least you aren’t in New York.

Anything to do with cellphones usually = pretty stupid shit, I’ve come to find. Like people lose all sense of propriety when they get a hold of one of those fuckers. Remember that scene in Don’t Be A Menace where the two guy are standing right next to each other and still use the damned cell? I have seen that shit in real life! My mom used to call my brother from two rooms away in the same house when she wanted something.

When I’m out with friends paying $15+ for my meal I do not want to hear you loud ass divorce revenge story or about your erectile dysfunction or how that bitch so-and-so did whatever-the-hell to nobody-gives-a-damn. I was raised with the idea that putting your business out in the street like that was to be avoided. I’m not even 25 yet. What the hell happened?!
That ish is ridiculous.

Ug the worst is the damn walkie talkie bastards. I have that feature and I know damn well you can 1. turn the damn volume down and 2. take that shit off speakerphone and still use the feature. Assholes. I don’t want to hear your fuzzy conversation that is always like ‘dude where are you’ ‘uh i can’t hear you’ ‘uh you should come over here so we can chill and decide to do something’ ‘uh what’d you say’

Also I feel you on that cell phone scare thing. Except young white men are equally as stupid. My school was in an uproar because in the city of Newark 2 white guys got mugged last summer by like 6-15 black teenagers near the one nice/’safe for white people’ part of town. Both guys got their wallets and cell phones taken because guess what? They were walking down the street towards but not in the ‘safe’ part of town at dusk on their cell phones and didn’t notice the large amount of young black men trailing their ass for 3 blocks until they rolled up on them and yanked that phone from their ear. Shit if I saw an idiot that oblivious I’d mug him too just for GP. They didn’t even know how many kids mugged them and followed them for 3 blocks at a walking pace? Some observant witnesses scared off the the 6 kids by yelling and running at them when they saw the stupid guy get mugged. They called the mayor to have a meeting to increase safety. If I was mayor I would’ve called the school to start a class to decrease stupidity.

I dont think his intention was to say women were asking for it, no one WANTS to be raped, assaulted, mugged, or killed.

He was saying stay your ass in the safety zone and be smart. Dont just MAKE yourself wide open to the sickos.

There is a such thing as CONTRIBUTORY NEGLIGENCE. If we were somewhere dangerous, we shouldnt fucking be there. Or we should be there with a gun and a dagger, not on the phone or with an Ipod jammed in our ears. No, we still dont deserve to be assualted, but damn….dont make it so easy. good post.

Any minute now, Aryan Queen is gonna come up in here and tell us how we are just jealous of their pretty long hair and ability to benefit from affirmative action without anyone getting mad at them about it.

In every city I have lived, I have observed a White woman (or man) walking after dark in the hood with an I-Pod, cell phone or both attached to their ear. And while these irresponsible fools do occasionally become the target for a robbery or assault, I have always known one thing to be true: these Black folks out here who are in the business of robbing and harrassing people are more likely to target me (5’9 and womanly, not on a cell phone and A SISTER) than Becky (5’2 and curvy as a #2 pencil, completely distracted and usually a GENTRIFIER). My theory is 1) even these hoodlums value white life more than Black life and 2) they realise that robbing a Black woman= business as usual, but robbing a White woman= police presence expands milleniafold.

I’m from Chicago, from a neighborhood affectionately known as “Terror Town,” and I have not, do not and will not fuck around after dark. I’ve SEEN what happens to people who get caught slippin and I have learned my lesson from their mistakes. . . You’ve seen the news. . .

But the best part is, Chris, she hasn’t learned her lesson. She will continue to wonder around in the dark, oblivious to everything and everyone else who may be around while she’s chatting away. If she happens to get away unscathed, she will go home, sleep with her cell phone by her head in case she gets a call from Scott, wake up, drive to work on her cell phone and inevitably cut me off on my morning commute. . .
At which point I will follow her to her destination and proceed to bust her windows out with the aluminum bat I keep in my trunk. . .

My point is, they just won’t get it until something REALLY fucked up happens to them. A giant black man running at them with a knife isn’t traumatic enough, so I say next time you run into one of these broads, push her into the pool, or better yet – snatch her cell phone. Hell, do both. Snatch her cell phone THEN push her into the pool.

Maybe then she’ll learn to keep her dumb ass in the house. . .

i’m guess i’m guilty(?) of this. but i only talk on my phone in the dark for short distances, in still pretty-well-lit conditions, i.e., class to my car, parking lots, etc. and particularly at night, i always make sure i have on comfortable shoes (i.e., shit i can run my ass off in, if need be.)

but i’ve never understood why women (particularly white women) like to go out in the middle of the dark? and if you are jogging, bring a buddy.

whoever referenced ipods are dead on. especially with the way those earbuds are made, you can’t hear anything, even if they are turned down to a moderate level.

birah – you have to admit, there are some things that we SHOULD be able to do, but we can’t just as a part of the reality of the society we live in. for instance, maybe one day i’d like to be able to ride upstate in PA to get my rural and rugged living on and sight-see a bit, but i’m damn sure not doing it. why? because that’s not a smart of safe thing for me to do, especially since i heard PA has the biggest membership of KKK in the nation.

Ok. It’s fine for women to walk/run at night in a major city, but one shouldn’t be oblivious to one’s surroundings. Like my dad would say – ‘If you’re out alone at night, act like you have somewhere to go. Walk with a purpose.’ I grew in DC and, knock on wood, the only crime I’ve experienced is having my license plates stolen in Glover Park (yes, White-ass Glover Park). I’ve never been afraid to walk around my own neighborhood, or any other neighborhood, alone at night, because I’m aware of my environment. And I’m not a naturally jumping person anyway. Having said that, I’m still not going to press my luck. If I out alone at night, I want all six senses on high alert, so I definitely won’t have a cellphone jammed in my head.

5 05 2008
Sylvia/M

Birah, I’d be right there with you if 1) this post was about raping, mugging, drugging, and killing women specifically and 2) it wasn’t ridiculous that a black man can’t jog in the park without someone relatively unguarded screaming in his general direction. Because that person wasn’t paying attention. Regardless of gender.

But I agree that a woman can be wherever she wants to be, and that it’s not her fault if someone does attack her. I doubt Chris would be as carefree if someone did try to rape him during his jog.

I forgot, one of the white boys had an ipod in his ears not a cell phone. Man, what a couple of stereotypes. And while black college kids are getting executed at middle schools, and homicide is epidemic in Newark, those 2 nincompoops wasted the mayor’s, the chief of police and the newspaper’s time over some idiocy.

That’s to funny! Aww poor Chris. Shoot I would went “boogie oogie oogie” and wave the knife at her for being a fucking idiot. Why in the hell do women do that. Its fine and dandy if you want to talk on your phone at night and walk around but damn girl pay attention or atleast have a few friends with you. I swear these white ladies just wanna get snatched up!

About two years ago when I was living in Florida I was walking from the corner store to my house and I was on the phone with my ex and there was this guy that was walking behind me this big ass black dude ran up thinking I didnt see or hear his ass tried to grab me by my arm and take me up the street. Well him not knowing my Dad taught me everything about self defense, I continued to stomp on his foot elbowing him in the stomach and turning around and pepper spraying the shit outta him 🙂 and ran all the way home pissed because he ripped my favorite pink sweater! I called my ex back and told him what happened he came to my house and picked me up and then called his friends that lived in that neighborhood to find that dude that tried to attack me(which btw they found him) and did some damage 🙂

Oh, BOO birah!

No one is blaming the victim here. If there are 10 women posting on this thread, there are at LEAST two rape victims. However, it is still irresponsible and stupid to put yourself in the line of fire. Furthermore, it is disgusting that some stupid broad who is running that time of morning by herself is unable to discern a fellow runner from a certain attacker. If she had seen a White man, she wouldn’t have freaked out.

We take steps to protect ourselves every day: we wear seatbelts, we look both ways when crossing the street, we makes judgements about the cleanliness of restaurants, we avoid potentially dangerous situations. If you get hit by a drunk driver while jaywalking, it’s still their fault. If you get food poisioning from a dirty looking carry-out, the blame isn’t on you. BUT, you did choose not to at least try to protect yourself. Same thing if you get raped while walking in a back alley in a notoriously unsafe neighborhood while listening to your I-Pod. It’s not your fault by any means, but you made yourself a damn easy target.

I think the bigger point of this blog was to point out the idiocy of the women who put themselves in precarious situations, then freak out when they see a Black man, as if Black man= probable rapist (even if he is dressed in running gear on a running path).

I never walk anywhere early morning or late at night alone thats just a rape waiting to happen, and I live right near the PG court house and big ass jail. Pass..

I especially hear/see this happen in Central Park in NY. WTF? You would think constantly hearing on the news about another white women getting beaten/raped/killed/mugged because they are walking/jogging BY THEMSELVES they would stop. And even worst, it is known that these incidents also happens in broad daylight, they should especially take precautions. Nope, their dumb a$$es say that that will never happen to them or they will simply blow their sissy-ass whistles for help from a good Samaritan. The mugger can easily shove that whistle down your throat or up your a$$es for all the good that will do. I’m sorry, but If I hear a whistle, I sure as hell am not running to your aid. My a$$ is not about to get mugged/rapped too!

Hmm. I suspect that this post could have triggered some feelings of resentment for someone who has been hit with the “you are asking for it” arguement after an assault. And I can understand how that would hurt. But at the end of the day, you have to protect yourself against those who can hurt you. You wouldn’t go in a dog pound wearing a bikini made of beef, would you?

Also- white people do seem to think they are invincible.

I lived down in DC during my freshman year of college over by GWU and there was no way that any of my friends or myself would be out around the pond without backup. When you’re walking around those trees it becomes eternal night. It’s great if you’re playing manhunt at around midnight but that’s among friends.

There is no logical reason why anyone should be wandering by themselves in the dark where people can potentially harm you. It’s called taking preventative measures. Keep your wits about you. Pay attention to everything that is in your vicinity. It ain’t that difficult.

I couldn’t fucking agree more. I go bike riding in the morning, and that incident has only happened to me once. I don’t know why my gender acts so fucking confused and indignant when they get raped/maimed/drugged/sold-into-a-sex -ring/killed when they put themselves in situations that are blatantly harmful. That friend-on-the-phone shit doesn’t work at gunpoint, trust me. Then again, I’m almost-always armed when I go out (major city or not, danger isn’t confined to strictly urban areas).

It’s been proven that if you’re talking on your cell phone, an attacker won’t bother you. It’s common courtesy:

“So yeah, blah blah blah, I can’t believe she said that, blah blah blah” –woman on phone
“Hey! Give me your wallet or—” –attacker
“Umm, excuse me *holds up finger*, but can’t you see that I’m on the phone?”–woman
“Oh.. sorry”–attacker then taps foot, glances at watch while he awaits her to finish her conversation

You know what I love about your blog? That you take suck fucked up situations and issues and find the inherent ridiculousness of it and then proceed to rrrrrrrrip it apart until I’m laughing out loud.

Well done on this one too.

I’m a firm believer that many people have not watched enough bad horror/slash flicks. Hello, there are situations that arise where you can hear the screeching violins cueing up and walking around in the dark in the early morning hours all alone is definitely one of them. To put yourself in a dicey circumstance is not asking for something horrible to befall you but it is setting yourself up for some unavoidable regret that you didn’t take simple precautions in the first place.

Lastly, I am nervous for you that run armed because if you are ever picked up for running while black, that is going to weigh ugly.

These are the same women who leave their purse in a shopping cart or on the floor and walk away. I was at Eastern Market in DC last weekend, middle of the day, scores of people around. This White chick leaves her bag ON THE GROUND and walks away to look at jewelry, her back to her purse. I jokingly pretended to put it up and continue walking and disappear into the crowd, because it would have been real easy.

And White people always leave their curtains up, or don’t have curtains/blinds at all, and wonder why there are so many break-ins on The Hill. Maybe it’s cultural. They are reactive instead of pro-active/preventive; always wait until something happens instead of considering the possibilities.

When did these White women become so brave? I’m paranoid as hell when I’m walking somewhere at night and I’m more than capable of holding my own in an altercation. If I’m leaving the office late, I will ALWAYS have the security guard escort me to my car because the last thing I want is to be a rape or robbery victim. I’ll be damned if I’m walking around at night talking loudly on my phone. Those women might have well put on a T-shirt that says “Rape me and cut me into pieces so I can be on Fox News.”

Seriously woman of all races/ethnicities need to be mindful of their surroundings. Although no one deserves to be raped or mugged, being cautious of your surrounding can make the difference between life and death. The conversation with your friend on the other line can wait 5-10 minutes until you safely reach your destination. A lot of White girls at USC ended up getting hurt because they would leave a party drunk out of their mind by their lonesome wandering around Downtown LA with no concept of what could happen to them.

There have been times where I have been scared as White women at the sight of a Black man coming towards me at particular times of night or in seemingly unsafe territory. I am also scared when I see White men, or Latino men or any man coming too close to me when I am in an area that isn’t densely populated or well lit.

But in the foolhardy interest of not making an innocent brother feel like a suspect, there have been times where I have played it cool when I wanted to take off running. However, I will grab my purse and speed up anytime I see White people walking behind me. I will also dart my eyes nervously in their direction and throw them a look of pure horror. This is my little piece of retrobution for what they do to the Black man on the daily. Oh, and for the White bitches in Trader Joes who seem to always remember to secure their purses when I walk by. I guess I just look like a hummus eating lady thug.

Good safety advice whether a woman is white, black or purple. You can’t control how someone else will act but you can control your actions — stay away from dark areas esp. when there are not a lot of people around.

Even little kids know this.

I don’t go anywhere after 11 pm by myself — or take stupid shorcuts. Shortcuts in parks and alleys are the worst.

Just because they’re a lot of people around, doesn’t me I’m ‘safe’. If anything it’s worse because everyone will be looking at everyone else to see who will help. And yes, Sister Toldja, you do look like a hummus-eating lady thug.

Yes, there was a ton of Sidekick snatchings up here last fall. Mostly bad ass teenagers snatching from other teens though. There was also a group of kids who tried to snatch a cell from a grown man who proceeded to take off his belt and whip their asses! Round of applause for him!

Irresponsible white women running by Charles River in Boston is a summer staple here too. Last year there were like 4 rapes all in the same 5 mile stretch along the Charles within a month. And all between the hours of midnight and 4am.

You’d think mo-fo’s would get the point after the first 2 rapes at least!

Oh s@#! I thought I was the only one who did this! I sure as hell do this for the same exact reason. I also don’t like to cross the street when a white person stop their car for me to cross. I think they gonna say, “Got ya black bitch!” and run me over. When I am on the elevator with them I hold on tight to my belongings and constantly give them side looks and check that the zipper on my purse is done up. Gets them every time.

I run at night sometimes but I never use my iPod after dark. If I’m on a deserted trail early in the a.m. and I see a shifty looking guy approaching I usually start singing out loud or make other noises to make him think: “crazy black chick — i’m staying away from her.” So far so good.

@ Knatural Your daddy was a wise man in telling you to ‘walk w/ purpose’. In fact the most useful thing I learned in college was that very fact and others during a rape-prevention workshop. Other helpful tips included: stay in well-lite areas, trust your gut if you feel uncomfortable around someone, look the person behind you that may [or may not] be following you In The Eye, and of course the ever-popular: be aware of your surroundings.

I gotta say, that screamer gal might as well have shouted “VICTIM!” She doesn’t stop walking in unlit area’s and acting stupid, she might as well paint a target on the back of her head. [Ok, admit it, you all started to hum “It’s the sign of the times” didn’t you?]

I live in the Bay area and my part of town is full to the brim will college students. Everyone knows that you don’t wander around late at night around here because your are likely to get mugged by these bad ass high school kids in the area. But inevitably, Sarah Paulson, Mary Lou Whitey and Becky Jean Spears get mugged and perhaps raped because they were walking by themselves between midnight and 4am.

I got into an argument with a girl about this in class once. She made the same argument as Birah, basically: I shouldn’t be afraid to go where I want to go when I want to go there. I can be wherever I want to be.

I looked her square in the face and said, would you want to be in Fallujah right now? And she says, no of course not. I said why? She’s like, because it’s dangerous. The class snickered but I still don’t think she got it. I hate dumb people. I walk home from work about 15 minutes every Sunday at 10pm and ALWAYS have my boyfriend walk me home. We just broke up (*tears*) but he still walks me back. If I didn’t have him I’d call the BearWalk service where they have a cop walk you home after dark.

Don’t put yourself in a dangerous situation and shit won’t happen to you.

1. I am a woman.
2. I am black.
3. I talk on my phone when walking in the dark, but it’s usually to my mother and only because she insists on talking to me until I get in and knowing my exact location every 10 seconds in case the call drops.
4. I am grateful to her for that because if someone does run up and kill me, they probably would have tried even if I wasn’t on the phone, and at least my body will be found quickly because she knew where I was, instead of lying in a ditch for weeks while people think I’m just “missing”.
5. Birah got mad and said that nobody should tell her she was asking for it because she was somewhere she had no business being….
On that note, I am of a different thought process. If you take every precaution to protect yourself but something happens anyway…totally not your fault. If someone you know and trust violates you, totally not your fault. But if you are just dumb or you just didn’t care at the time, if you frequently make out with strangers at bars or parties and get so drunk that you can’t even make a rational decision to save your life or your dignity, then it’s your fault. They were wrong, but it’s your fault. Because if you were jogging with a friend, or at home waiting for the sun to come up, if you were half sober on that first date or at that party, you would’ve been fine. When I am walking by myself at night, I always expect that someone is hiding behind a car or a bush to “get me”, and I’m always ready (even if I’m on the phone). And if they get me, I’m not mad because I’m in their territory. Now, if a fool comes up in my house and robs me, that’s a different story.
7. I used to get pissed off every time my undergraduate school held “sexual assault” education discussions in the middle of Art History class to “educate” us. They always passed out these questionnaires that said, “Is it rape if a man has sex with a woman if she is drunk?” “Is it a woman’s fault if she gets raped while walking down an alley at 3am wearing a string bikini?” “Does a man have an excuse to rape a woman just because they were both drunk?” and then they’d go through the answers with the class. The “obvious” answers were “Yes, no, and no.” But in my mind, the answer was all ways, “Its probably not ok, but why the fuck is she doing that??” I’d then go out and see white girls already wasted at 9pm and on their way to a frat party where they would continue to drink all night and make out with guys, they’re feeling each other up, dry humping on the dance floor, and just because she’s drunk the guy is not supposed to think he can hit? Um…I don’t know what kind of world white women live in, but in the hood, that’s an open invitation. I never understood this.
8. My family continuously warns me against moving into “gentrified” neighborhoods in Atlanta because, as others have said, seems like white women get away with roaming the streets in these areas while fools wouldn’t hesitate to rob my black ass.
9. Chris, I love your blog.

As a black male from the South, it really is an thing to figure out: Don’t go where you’re going to stand out unless you’re dealing with an especially pacifistic group(ie hippies) and even at that prepare for some possible stupidity.

It’s an easy parallel really. I don’t like to go to unfamiliar places where there are nothing but white people unless I absolutely have to. I won’t get raped but the racism and stares leave a mark. I can’t imagine what it’d be like to be physically violated like these women and my heart goes out to them. At any rate, just don’t put yourselves in dumb situations.

White people are so cavalier when it comes to shit like that, JUST SO THEY CAN TALK ABOUT IT LATER AND BE NON-CHALANT ABOUT HAVING BEEN IN AN INCREDIBLY DANGEROUS PLACE. I live in the rapidly gentrifying Brooklyn, New York and it’s like white people are doing that shit in droves now. I feel like they get mixed messages though, “Don’t be afraid of us, but also don’t live in our neighborhoods.” I smell blog…Chris are you listening?

It’s not that hate you, it’s that I love my hood and as soon as too many of y’all start meandering around, the powers that be on that bullshit start trying to find ways to get me and mine out! Can’t we all just get along from the comfort of our respective neighborhoods?

True story- I went to look at an apartment being shown by this White guy in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. I would have been his roommate. This cat described the neighborhood as having a “ghetto fabulous charm”, and said that while it could be a little rough, I shouldn’t have any trouble being that I am Black and from Brooklyn (he just assumed, incorrectly, that I was). He almost died that day.

Love the blog. Love the post. This is the first time I’ve been moved enough to comment. That being said- all I have to say is:
Wow. I want to be shocked by the stupidity of women like this but I can’t be.
Case in point: my freshman year in college, my white roomate repeatedly ran around the University of Cincinnati campus shortly after the race riots. drunk. at night. alone. unarmed. Whereas prior to even leaving for college my grandfather and stepdad each outfitted me with an extendable steel baton, can of pepper spray for my key chain, a Smith and Wesson Crazy Horse hunting knife so that I’d be prepared – just in case, and the advise to “Not walk alone after dark unless armed without pepper spray and a backup non-projectile self defense weapon”. Now my instructions were probably a little extreme (my grandfather use to be a detective on the vice squad which used to include sex crimes), but still- it’s common sense!
Case 2: Sophomore year. another white roommate: thinks she’s safe because she walks around sketchy downtown because she’s accompanied by another obnoxious white girl who is dumb enough to yell “we’re soooo lost” and a 130 pound drunk white guy. The wanted be to come along to help them in case anything happened- as if I could speak “negro” to any muggers and act as a liaison to any savage black men that might try and rape them. Fucking irresponsible white people.

Mase/pepper spray is actually not a good idea for women to carry. There have been many cases where the woman did not move fast enough and the attacker used the pepper spray on the victim. So ladies if you do carry pepper spray be mindful of how to use it quickly and before your attacker comes close enough to take it away from you.

I had the audacity to try to take my husband a lunch, in broad daylight, an a path in Central Park. Shortly afterwards, i had to ditch the lunchbasket and run for my life, when two black men tried to rape me. In broad daylight. On a runner’s path.

I hate the profiling of our men. But perhaps we’d be better served by men who haven’t claimed so much territory as places they can go but we can’t.

I no longer go to Central Park alone. Is that what you mean, when you say we should stay in “our” place?

The white woman you described was out of line. Not because of where she was, but because she ignored the first law of self-preservation: know your surroundings.

That said, I will give you props for not losing it, and whipping her ass ‘just because’. She, like too many white women joggers, are way too eager to o so in dangerous areas Perhaps some signs indicating ‘predators ahead’ will help all of us.

Ditto all that, and also try this ditty:
When you find yourself in an enlosed space with a white man, or better yet, white woman, try to shrink yourself as small as possible away from them. Allow your eyes to dart nervously back and forth when they make eye contact with you or smile at you. Finally, if they speak to you, or make eye contact again, blurt out nervously- “I don’t have any cash on me!” And scurry away. The looks on their faces if more helpful than YEARS or therapy…

*The Reflecting Pool is about 200 yards shy of being 1/2 mile long. The woman was spooked right at mid-length, meaning she had 1/4 mile of my hard breathing and heavy stomping to hear me…if she hadn’t been on the fucking phone.

**I know I’m guilty of this too – after all, I was also running around by the Reflecting Pool in the dark. I am also not a frail, inattentive, and easily spooked white woman. I am 6′3″ tall, I weigh 190lbs, I am already running, and I am armed with knives. I’m not the type of person anyone wants to rape or mug. I can run anywhere I want. DEAD!!!! lol

The reverse has happened to me (I’m a woman) about 3 times(!) where I’m always entering/exiting the ladies bathroom and some white chick will approach the opposite side of the door and once we meet face to face, she’ll let out a little scream or “ahhhh! I didn’t see you there, you scared me!” -type of comment.

Some could argue that I legitimately caught her off guard because she was (as usual) not paying attention to her surroundings or to the fact that there are other people standing on the opposite side of the door trying to make their entrance/exit.

Or could it be that I’m a dark-skinned black woman and I appear vaguely threatening to her?

It’s not the just black men that this happens to, I believe it affects us ladies too.

So I definitely feel the author on this post and it sucks.

#2 of your shytty realities isn’t necessarily true. . . no one is saying she would be at fault on her OWN, but in this day and age, one would be retarded not to take even the most common sense precautions. . . u put on your seatbelt when u get in the car. u lock your door when u leave the house. u zip up your purse. u don’t wear your PIN number taped to your forehead. People do all of that to protect themselves. . . so why in tarnations would u run/jog ALONE, at an obscure ass hour at night, in a violent city, while distracted by ipod/cell phone????? lol how does that EVEN make sense. . . no one is blaming rape victims. . . but the simple ass white girl that keeps gettin got time and time again by simply not being aware of her surroundings does need a good laugh. . .

disclaimer: rape is NOT funny. . . this post was meant to be funny, and ya’ll know that. we know people are usually rape by those they know. so again, random black guy shouldn’t scare random white woman. . . but it did. also, if she was thinking, she would have gotten off the goddamn phone, and RAN WITH the black guy. personal security guard like shyt. . . but that would have just brought up a whole different deal about black men and white women dating/fraternizing/being civil/knowin the other exists. lol

“Normally, I enjoy your posts; however, this one is a big fat fucking FAIL.

,b>Fact: Most women are raped by men they know.

Using your logic, females should not

-be in their homes
-associate with men that they know
-be in possession of a vagina”

The only failure here involves your reading comprehension.

My logic is that women should avoid PREVENTABLE situations that put them in UNNECESSARY danger. Last time I checked, being in your own home, associating with men you know, and owning a snatch isn’t something you can (reasonably) prevent. Having dinner with a male acquaintance is not the same thing as walking in the dark while running your mouth with an iPod connected to one ear and a phone to the other.

Just for future reference, it is a very bad idea to get into a battle of logic with an engineer unless you really know what the hell you’re doing.

Maybe you can elaborate on this in Irresponsible White Women II 😀 but why do White women traipse barefoot on city streets? On my walk home today I saw a seemingly sensible women white from the back of her house, along the busy sidewalk, bend the corner, and walk into her front yard, BAREFOOT (while on a cell phone). I’ve seen drunken White girls do this because they could no longer bare the agony of four-inch stilettos. Do these chicks want Hepatitis? I’ve never seen any other type of women do this. Please help.

First of all, thanks for reminding us all how out of shape we are (and to think my ass was proud of my sad 5 little miles.)
Good to know we could bounce a quarter off your ass, Chris.

But anyone can scare a white woman,if you put your mind to it. Scare them or make them cling to their boyfriends/husbands.

Either way, its funny to me.
