I walked into one of my training sessions a few weeks ago and said "Good morning" to the two brothas and three white women whom were present. And no one said anything back, so I just thought that no one heard me (eventhough I was loud enough) since they were talking. Eventually I noticed that one of the brothas (the instructor) was directing his eye contact and teaching more towards everyone else than me. And of course I was actively participating in which he would look towards me and then quickly back to them. It wasn't until towards the end of the class sessions that the two brothas and the three white women started talking a little bit more to me. Yes! interesting.
You know, at first I thought it was my imagination but when I thought about I realized the magnitude of how divided the Black community is especially when it comes to our men leaning more to women whom do not look like us. But if I or any other sista did anything like this, we would have been treated like sell outs and might even been called out on it. smdh.
