Before long, I would come to understand what all that, REALLY, meant. My purpose became to dispel whatever notion they may have had about black people.
Yes, I feel a sense of responsibility just like Harriet Tubman.
Well, something like that powerful black woman.
I have to worry just in case they mistaken me for their stereotypical representative.
So in essence, I worry about what the ” white man ” thinks to the extent that the ” white man ” gets an understanding of who I am as a black person, not who they say that I am.
Oh, and not that I expect that the time will be taken to be understood either.
It doesn’t take much time to size a person up, to dispel biases, hidden ones as well.
Yes, I want the ” white man ” to be perfectly clear about this black person who is representative of many like her.
I do worry, but I don’t❗
