One day I found myself caught between a rock and a hard place and I had to think quickly. I was in a bank desiring to go to an office on one of th eupper floors but i could not find a way up. A brother walked by and I asked him to help me which he agreed to do. Right then a white lady came up smiling nervously like they do. You know how they do. she asked me if I needed help. I immediately realized that I was in a sensiive situation. I could not go with the white woman and leave the brother standing there feeling useless and obsolete as so many Black men do. Nor could I just dis the white woman. I would go home. It was the brother who worked there and would have to deal with the retaliation. I just stood thee like everything is everything and said oh no I'm fine. I waited for the white woman to leave and when I was sure she was gone I went with the brother.
