I was on my way to the library a few weeks ago when this kid in saggin sweats, a T-shirt and nappy hair runs up on me saying “Yo, boss can I get a dollar to buy some…”
I don’t know what was more appaling his apelike body language or his dialect Boss? Where did this guy come from, the Plantation? Or did he get off the Coon Train? Dude was acting just like a slave.
The saddest part about the incident was this Negro has an iphone in his pocket and air Jordan sneakers on his feet. What the hell is he doing asking me for my money? Money I worked for? He’s got over $500 on his back and in his pocket. But he wants my dollar?
Pardon my language but, get the fuck out of here.
Now this wasn’t my first encounter with Negro males like this. There were several more I’ve run into in my neighborhood like this. Guys who are dressed up in $200 jeans and $250 sneakers, but they feel they have the audacity to come up to me and ask for a quarter, a dollar or whatever.
These guys have no shame in their game. And they don’t see how pathetic they look.
Another incident I had about a week ago was at the 167th Street train station on the 4 Train line. I was taking some packages to the Post office to ship to customers and this Negro male in a T-shirt and sagging pants is like “I can give you a swipe for $2.” Knowing buying swipes is illegal, I just ignore the dude and head for the MetroCard Vending machines to pay for a legit train ride.
On seeing me go to the vending machine, This Bitch-Made™ Negro on not getting the sale from me then makes a crack on how I look like Carl Winslow from Family Matters. I shook my head and kept heading up the stairs to the downtown trains. Clearly this Negro male came from a female headed household, because only a Bitch-Made™ Negro male from a single mother household makes statements like that after not getting their way.
Seriously, emulating the behavior of a single mom who wants to get the last word in is not an effective sales technique. And hustling rides on the train is a fast way to get locked up here in New York City.
The way I see it, I have too much to lose to get involved with Coons to let them bait me into an argument that could possibly cost me my freedom or my life. They can keep talking. Me, I’ll keep it moving.
A true to the game hustler would take NO for an answer and keep grinding. Because they know if it ain’t about dollars it don’t make sense. And the time they take being upset over someone saying NO is time they could take to get to YES. In the hustling game it’s all about averages. You’re gonna strike out most of the time. But in the face of NO you’ll get that yes if you keep pushing.
Now I don’t mind helping brothers and sisters. But I’m not about to get involved with grimy Negroes running pulling bum ass hustles. There’s a dozen ways to make money out here and 11 of them aren’t illegal.
I see Black CHILDREN selling candy they BOUGHT from BJ’s and flipping the entire box for $200 a day. I see Hispanic guys hustling water during the summertime. Mexicans hustling tamales and churros. Africans selling ginger or phone cards. I can respect their hustles. Because just like them I grind trying to sell these eBooks and paperbacks. And for the past month I’ve been grinding trying to sell stuff on eBay.
But you’re telling me grown ass Black men got to beg for change?
Bitch-Made™ Negro males have to beg and do illegal stuff like MetroCard Swipes, Food Stamp hustles, and begging for change outside of stores because they lack the social skills to grind and hustle. So they have to scavenge for change while the rest of the world makes dollars.
It just disgusts me to see grown ass Negro males dressed up in the latest with iphones in their hands running up on me asking for a dollar or a quarter, or trying to sell me a ride on the train for change. WTF is this shit? You telling me this male can have money for a pair of $200 Jordans, $250 True Religion Jeans, and a $500 iphone, but he gotta beg for change to get something to eat?
I know it’s hard out here, but come on. Black men can do better than this. Raggedy Negroes like this are part of the reason why no one takes the Black race seriously. Get your shit together Black man. You can do better than this.
