Cops & Beckys -- Dred Feminist Rant #12

Cops & Beckys -- Dred Feminist Rant #12

I’m moving to a new city next year for a new teaching contract as a Visiting Professor. I’m excited about the new university and the new town. They’re paying me enough to afford a short-term rental in a very high-end gated community. Before sending in my security deposit, I paused and reviewed the recent news about the precarity of Black lives. There's a new way that white supremacy affects my living choices.

I’m an older African American woman. While I can afford to live in a predominantly white community, can I risk it? What if there is another Becky out there immersed in her white fragility and offended if I don’t wave, smile, or parade my white friends for racial legitimacy? What about things I usually do: shop, buy coffee, drive, read books in cars, etc., things for which Black people are harassed by cowardly white bullies and cops?

About those cops, I’m moving to a state in which the police frequently act like Gestapo against immigrants and other people of color. If Becky calls them, they might shoot first and ask questions of my corpse. That's when they'll plant the gun and the drugs to belatedly justify my death. Dare I pretend that my temporary class privilege will immunize me against Beckys and Cops? I don’t think so.

Instead, I’ll select an apartment in a neighborhood more used to seeing people of color living our lives, hopefully one not being gentrified, because that’s another risk as well. The cops may be more meanly aggressive there, but at least Becky will be too afraid to live next to me.

Wish me luck!

The new teaching contract as a Visiting Professor is so motivating for you and for everyone who love this profession. I saw many people love to go to a different city for finding a job to explore the city.

This is really very interesting. This is something most of us immigrants share. I have only moved a couple of times and I can imagine how difficult it is to be moving from your hometown to the other place. It is a stressful task. I really don’t want to leave in the beginning, since I am leaving my friends and most of my family behind. The culture shock is enormous and the adjustment period takes time. You should really bring a emotional first aid kit. You should be ready for what is ahead and make sure you do a research on the new environment you will be in.

best custom essay on Monday, May 28, 2018 4:55 AM
It's the 21st century already, but there are still people who are discriminating others because of their skin color or race. This kind of action is non-sense and very inhumane. There is no such thing as "level of superiority" in skin tone. We all deserve to be respected and love, no matter what is our background or history. Those building a human rights movement knows that being a racist is a misguided tactic of short-sighted people who makes a division on each and everyone for whatever reasons they may have. We all deserve to be treated fairly and properly. It's a basic human right.

OFFICE 2016 PRODUCT KEY I want to thank Windows 10 Enterprise Product Key here, she has won my business and I'll be posting my experience to you and others. My old computer crashed days ago. I had to buy a new computer. It costed me much. My budget was not much. To purchase a Windows 10 Enterprise Product Key from MS was not enough. Then I went to Tomshardware, and one guy recommended https://www.cdkey4u.com/ to me. Their price did attract me. So I decided to try after several emails to Windows 10 Enterprise Product Key. She was very patient and answered clearly to all my questions. I receved the key immediately after I sent {price} bucks. It worked perfectly. I was very very satisfied. I'll be buying from https://www.cdkey4u.com/ from now on as well. OFFICE 2016 PRODUCT KEY

Racism is still present here in the US. I am truly sad that this is still happening. I mean No matter what color you have it does not define your personality nor your skills and capabilities. I hope all these things about racial discrimination to come to an end one day. By the way, thank you for posting this in your blog, and good luck with your new place. Also, thank you for opening this section for comments to share our thoughts with you.
