No hiding place

Posted on Thu, Sep 1, 2016 at 4:00 AM

Perhaps you paid in advance, but I doubt it. Sitting enjoying coffee at the Halifax Forum Farmers Market, I (an older black woman) watched you (a younger white woman) grab a bunch of carrots from a table staffed by Elmridge Farm, stuff it into your Sobeys bag and keep walking. Yes, Sobeys, recently cold-busted for its racial profiling of black people! I immediately got up and followed you to the Noggins Farm line. I pondered confronting you. But on the off chance you had paid for the carrots, I decided to...let the cosmic forces deal with it.  And people wonder why black folk are "so angry" all the time. —The Content of Our Character
