dating in the dark billy and chelsea still together - Black women intimidating

And even in my head I can think of examples of real life situations that could have escalated easily and I do not need much convincing that this often does occur.

Being called intimidating as a black girl is not only a prime example of dog whistle politics, it is also just another way of spinning the angry black girl trope.

Is the person doing the calling trying to say you're an impressive and accomplished woman? He'll see you as a whole person and not just a scarily impressive job title. If you find yourself doing so for the sake of a man, snap out of it!

But, the fact that I am five feet and five inches tall and my weight does not surpass 110 pounds (but who’s counting, really), does add surprise to the fact that I get told that I am intimidating a lot for someone who literally can not even carry her own weight.

The past few days I had been working on an article, and I was gathering information about what black girls get annoyed by with hearing the most.

So, yes there is a chance that you could spontaneously crash and burn, and yes there is a chance that I could beat the shit out of you, but it never actually happened, so why are you even mentioning the possibility?

I was most appalled by one particular story by a girl who was told she was intimidating in her work environment.

This is a girl who, similar to me, does not hold any physical threat.

And even if she did, who would ever physically hurt someone on the work floor?

Probably something along the lines of using this power of intimidation for your advantage.

And yes, I admit, I have used it in my advantage, because as much of a social person as I am, sometimes it’s actually very nice to be left the fuck alone.

If your facial expression and your walk suggest you have absolutely no interest in talking to others, he might decide it's is better to steer clear.
