I created this Street Harassment and Street Harassment & Misogynoir BINGO
chart revealing the most common excuses given to justify this violence.
The top of the card is general as women (though not only people who identify as "women") from a variety of backgrounds, locations, ages, races etc. experience street harassment.
The bottom of the card is specific to excuses Black men give to justify street harassing Black women, as this is a conversation that we are having about our communities.
This is NOT to infer the fallacies that White men/non-Black men of colour don't also street harass, that women who aren't Black don't experience street harassment or that "only" Black men street harass with "only" White women as victims as portrayed by media. Intersectionality
or BUST. It can be BOTH true that media shapes street harassment in racist ways
based on racist myths about Black men AND true that Black women still experience street harassment from Black men.
