The moment I picked up my new Lamborghini Aventador Roadster from a docking area near my house. Soon as we got the car off the truck, the delivery guy in quickly explained all buttons on the car and how to take the top off. I then got in the car to turn it on for the first time & IMMEDIATELY a very aggressive white guy in his 50's walked up on the car & started cursing me out screaming
"FUCK YOU, MOTHERFUCKER, Get That Piece of Shit Out of Here, Kids out here trying to sleep!" ETC.
The delivery guy IMMEDIATELY ran away in fear, & walked towards his truck. I laughed very hard in the guys face, it made him even more angry. He then said, "I'm going to call the cops." He saw me unbuckle my seatbelt & quickly walked away with the phone up to his ear.
He didn't expect me to laugh the way I did. He wanted me to respond out of anger so he cld call the cops & have me arrested only to destroy my moment & my record. Guess It was hard for him to except seeing a young black man get a delivery like this. I laughed because I wanted him to see that I understood the real reason why he was so enraged, aggressive & uncomfortable. It was truly funny to me. I understood moments like this before even having to experience moments like this. In fact, having the awareness of moments like this is what gave me the drive to work harder through discrimination so I could one day experience moments like this.
YES, There are people in this world who will push your buttons because of your skin color, they expect you to walk around angry, out of control, destroying your own life cause they know we were taught that we have no hope in surviving this corrupt system, BUT that does not mean we have to be the one to prove them right. Every single time the cops follow me around for miles, running my tags & waiting for me to speed, I just smile and waive.
I SEE YOU👋
How I handled this situation made the entire experience even more worthwhile as I not only received my new car, but I got a chance to see an example of how much my new mentality had to mature before God could even bless me to be in a situation like this!
