| 10/29/2010 | Comments (2)

In this fourth segment of the What Black Women Think series, Sistah Girl and her male friend Dante discuss Dante’s attitude that Black women need to acknowledge him by smiling and saying “hello,” every time he speaks, whistles,  honks or shouts at her on public streets. They delve into the sense of entitlement Black men have to Black women’s time, attention and bodies by use of tactics known as street harassment.

Sistah Girl corrects Dante’s misconceptions and the justifications men give for cat calls, profanity, physical assaults and verbal abuse of African American females on public transit and on the streets of cities across the U.S. Street harassment of black females needs to stop.

    I recommend a Gun permit and regular firearms practice. Bullets will stop buffoonery.

    Hi Ms.Cooper, I agree with you wholeheartedly. I suffered tremendously from this phenomena as a teen and young woman. It got so bad that it might take me an hour to walk to a store right around the corner from my house to avoid groups of nasty azz boys and men making nasty comments to me. Sometime I could not even bring myself to leave the house at hours I knew they would be on the corner. I never even talked to my mother about this. This was almost 35 yrs ago and I still go thru emotional trauma when I think about it. I am glad you are shining the spotlight on this terribe isue within our community , keep it coming !!!!
