NY Times reporter accuses white women of racism on city sidewalks

http://thehill.com/homenews/media/343073-ny-times-reporter-accuses-white-women-of-racism-on-city-sidewalks

The New York Times is facing blowback on social media after publishing an essay by an African-American reporter who accused white women of racism for not ceding space on city sidewalks to black men.

In a Wednesday essay titled "Was That Racist," reporter Greg Howard singled out white women for forcing him "off the sidewalk completely" when walking toward him, not allowing a straight path.

"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," Howard writes.
....
"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," Howard said.

1. "not allowing him a straight path"?

So what Greg is saying here is that NORMALLY people get out of his way, which he considers "walking courteously", but when he has to get out of other peoples' way (like white women) it's racist.

thing in Greg's path.

3. I wonder if we'll have a feminist writer write about how people like Greg are sexist for

suggesting that women should have to move out of his way.

6. It's always interesting to see two sets of "victims" pitted against each other because of how

other libs try to make peace.

The best is when they try to blame straight, white men for the whole thing.

9. Greg's complaint is sexist. Why doesn't he complain about white men not getting out of his

way?

7. Those going north get one side, those going south get the other

If its strollers in parallel, stand your ground, they will move around you and huff about it.

10. he's just race-baiting again

look at Greg:

?background=000000&cropX1=2&cropX2=744&cropY1=182&cropY2=925

no room to call someone else having "broad shoulders".
