The past few months have shown a very ugly side of America when it comes to living while Black. Whether it’s a woman in Oakland complaining about a Black family having a barbeque or a New York City lawyer berating immigrants, racism is running rampant from coast to coast.

For the most part, Black people have been calm when it comes to dealing with racists, who hurl verbal insults, invade personal space and actually get physical.

However, during a protest over the police shooting of Thurman Blevins, an unidentified White woman snatched the sign from a young Black woman. As a result, the White woman received what is known in the Black community as the ceremonial laying of “hands.”

See for yourself.
