"Monkey Butt Powder" And The Evidence Of A Self-Actualized Black Man
I walked down the isle where some "good ole boys" were talking.
One said to the other - "You need to get this Monkey Butt in the isle right there. It feels good when you put that Monkey Butt on your knuckles and the bottom of your feet".
As I, a Black man walked buy - I did not fear that they were talking about ME. I looked around and saw the bottle of talcum powder sitting in the bin and figured they were talking about it.
(Note - I made that story up. But still it is an example of "Racism That Did Not Happen" as there were good ole boys in the store who did not mess with me.)
