You can add walking to the list of things white people do that are considered racist.
New York Times reporter Greg Howard wrote about what he believes is the racism of white women, in a piece published Wednesday titled “Was That Racist?”
“Walking courteously doesn’t take much, just soupçons of spatial awareness, foresight and empathy. In seven years of living and walking here, I’ve found that most people walk courteously — but that white women, at least when I’m in their path, do not,” he wrote.
“When white women are in my path, they almost always continue straight, forcing me to one side without changing their course. This happens several times a day; and a couple of times a week, white women force me off the sidewalk completely. In these instances, when I’m standing in the street or in the dirt as a white woman strides past, broad-shouldered and blissful, I turn furious,” he lamented.
Howard is apparently unaware of a long standing practice of gentlemen to yield to ladies of any race.
He said he feels “small” in these instances because he moves out of the way for them.
“After these encounters, I’m always left with questions. Why only and specifically white women? Do they refuse to acknowledge me because they’ve been taught that they should fear black men, and that any acknowledgment of black men can invite danger?” he asked. “Do they refuse to acknowledge me because to alter their route would be to show their fear? Do they not see me? Can they not see me?”
Yes. All white women are blind.
“Whenever I ask white women I know why they don’t reroute for black men, they invariably express ignorance,” he wrote. “Whenever that happens, another question always arises: ‘Wait, am I crazy?'”
“A couple of weeks ago, I asked an Asian friend if he had the same experience of white women not getting out of his way,” he continued. “He said no. For whatever reason, white women see him just fine. The people who don’t, he said, are white men.”
Who are these people they are running into on the streets?
Perhaps the issues are not anywhere other than in the mind of someone that sees racism in everything.
Social media laced into Howard for his ridiculous, whiny, essay.

If they got out the way they’d be racist, if they don’t move they are racists. White womens mere existence is, it seems racist.

So following his logic. White women must make way for him but he doesn’t have to make way for anyone. So that means he’s racist.
