Once in high school
I was hanging out with a group of guys, only one of them was really my friend, but I guess the other didn’t want me there? Or something? So instead of asking me to fuck off or whatever they tried to make me uncomfortable with the conversation lololol so they started talking about stereotypical dude stuff like sex and porn and shaving their balls and I wasn’t budging I was just laughing along and finally my guy friend told me what they were trying to do (obviously my first thought was wow what a bunch of a-holes) and I just looked and him and said “you guys aren’t talking about anything different than what my girl friends talk about” and saw their whole world crash before their eyes it was glorious

All participants saw black men as larger, stronger and more muscular than white men, even though they were the same.
However, nonblack participants perceived black men to be more capable of causing harm in a fictional fight scenario, and, even more disquieting, that police would be more justified in using force to subdue the black men — even if they were unarmed.
That black men cannot even be perceived as who they actually are is a factor, according to researchers, in America’s police brutality epidemic. Read more (3/13/17 12:16 PM)
