WHAT I'M TWEETING
RT @steenfox : Twitter is my favorite place to tell strangers what I like/don't like when nobody asked me.
So, that was my first ever direct interaction with the law. Like I said, super minor, but did make me a bit uneasy and unsettled.
But it's also not hard to be civil with people. People make me roll my eyes everyday, but I can still find it within to see their humanity.
I wish that there was a for these interactions to happen that isn't so demeaning. Police are put in danger every day...
Or, when they're constantly harassed and something in them finally says "no this is the last time."
And this was so minor, but I can see how people get upset and scared when an officer has an aggressive attitude for NO reason.
The entire time, he was rude and condescending, so I lost respect immediately, but I was also frustrated because I knew I didn't do anything
It was a 2 min convo, but I was shaking after because you guys, I never get in trouble, I just don't. I've never had a speeding ticket.
Then he's all like "GOOD. You need to slow down and watch it." I say have a good day and he just drives off.
So I collect all of my sass and tell him that I apollgize for going faster than the other cars (snarky still) and I will slow down.
At that point I was like aw damn, Mila. I know you're mad, but no talk backs.
For the record, the other cars were going slow AF. 20 is the speed limit, I like kids, but I'm pushing that limit. I'm allowed to go 20...
Anyway, he tells me that I was speeding, I tell him that I disagre, I was going 20. He tells me I was going much faster than the other cars.
Though, at 5'2 and chubby with nerdy ass glasses and a clean record - I'm not much of a threat.
It's right at THIS moment that all of my black kid instincts kick in. Don't talk back, yes sir, no sir, don't move suddenly or be a threat.
