“Problematic white dudes” who “speak out of turn” or “refuse to step aside” for black people on public sidewalks should be barked at like a dog to “force their silence” and teach them a lesson, according to high-profile leftist writer Damon Young.
Really. Barking. Taking inspiration from Marvel Comics superhero film Black Panther, Young explained the bark should be “targeted,” “overpowering” and “drowning.“
“One thing … we can and definitely should start doing is what M’Baku and his Que Dog Jabari tribe did when encountering a problematic white dude who was speaking when there was no ask or need or purpose for the thoughts and opinions of problematic white dudes,” wrote Young at The Root. “Bark.”
Here’s what the bark should communicate, according to Young:
Um, who told you that you can speak? When it is time for your words, we will let you know. And maybe that time will never come. We’ll see. Now, just shut up and stand there. Maybe get on your phone and Google “How not to be a colonizer.” Whatever you do, I want to hear you not speaking.
Black people should not just bark at whites speaking out of turn, he says, but also at whites who touch black people’s hair, or refuse “to step aside when you attempt to walk past them” on the sidewalk, for example:
“The bark doesn’t just have to be a counter for useless words, either. A wayward white hand reaches for your hair? WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! A group of white people huddled on a sidewalk refuses to step aside when you attempt to walk past them? WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! A purse is clutched when you walk on an elevator? WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! (If they’re going to act scared, you might as well give them a reason to be.)” writes Young.
“I’m announcing the opening of the M’Baku School of Wakandan White Silencing,” concluded the leftist.
So much for tolerance and racial harmony from the progressive left.
