Today I walked through my mother's community
What kind of stupid does hippychick have to be to claim that the reason she could walk around (supposedly without being killed??) is simply because she's a "skinny white woman, late 40's. über priveleged"?

Today I walked through my mother's community and saw a neighborhood watch person
Not kidding. I'm visiting my mom in suburban NY and I went for my daily walk, I wandered up the street and into a gated section of the community. The guard didn't glance my way. I walked up to the house and asked if it was okay for me to walk around and he said "absolutely!"
The irony of it hit me. I'm a skinny white woman, late 40's. über priveleged.
I turned around. But not before I commented to the guard about how lucky I am that I can walk through a strange neighborhood and not have to worry about being shot. It doesn't feel right and it's not fair. The guard was black and he looked so sad when I pointed it out.
I was so struck by the parallel I wanted to share.
Ummmm....it's daytime.......she announced herself and ASKED if she could walk around....it's not raining and she doesn't claim to be looking at the windows.....in a development with multiple burglaries in the recent months. I don't see anywhere in the OP where she states that she punched anyone either. That MIGHT make a difference in her reception as well.
DU liberal women are sure self loathing....and stupid as hell.
Not to mention smug about how multicultured, self depreciating, and politically correct she is.
Let her dumb ass walk around south Dallas tonight....
Tomorrow she can post as Almost Beaten To Death Or Worse Hippy Chick. If she's ever seen again.
