Things We Can No Longer Do While Black

In lieu of April's 20 questions (yes, I am late again) I thought I would compile a list of all the things Black people can no longer do while living, breathing and occupying space in America. Apparently there has been a surge of individuals calling police enforcement on people of color for doing everyday things. I only have a few incidents so far, but its only May so I'm sure the colonizers will not disappoint us. (Update: I was able to add four additional microaggressions only a few hours after compiling the initial list.) 

  1. Black people can no longer rent an Airbnb without being accused of robbing the residence. 
  2. Black people can no longer study for finals in their own dorm.
  3. Black people can no longer wait for a friend at Starbucks.
  4. Black people can no longer exercise in peace. 
  5. Black people can no longer rest their arms on arm rests on airplanes
  6. Black people can no longer try on clothes at a retail store before making a purchase. 
  7. Black people can no longer play golf
  8. Black people can no longer shop for prom clothes
  9. Black people can no longer move into their own apartments. 
  10. Black people can no longer use coupons at restaurants. 
  11. Black people can no longer pay for a meal after they have eaten at a restaurant. 
  12. Black people can no longer BBQ in the park. 
  13. Black People can no longer take a walk in the park with their children.
