I was on my way to the grocery store last weekend, when someone started walking along side of me. At first I didn’t think anything of it because it was a beautiful day and the streets were really crowded. Then I heard:
Excuse me BooBoo, can I talk to you for a minute.
I was shocked that someone was actually using “BooBoo” as a term of endearment and I slowly turned my head to see if it was a joke. The man walking next to me was staring at me, dead serious and from the looks of it, incredibly high.
I smiled and said “no thank you.” His response was
“It’s ’cause I’m black, right?”
Immediately about 5 different responses flooded my head:
What the fuck are you talking about, I’m black myself.
No, it’s because you just called me BooBoo
No, it’s because I’m just not interested.
No, it’s because you look like you’re high as fuck.
No, it’s because you look like you have no job, no education, and hang out at the corner store all day.
Instead I briefly paused, took a deep breath, and kept it moving. As I walked away I hear “yeah, it’s ’cause I’m black.”
Meanwhile, in the Tinderverse, here are some gems that either myself or my friends have come across:
Keep it classy fellas…..
