White Roommate Afraid To Touch Black Roommate’s Hair Even Though It’s Clogging The Shower Drain
Boston woman Blair Whitman found herself mid-shower when the shower suddenly turned into a bath — all because her black roommate's hair was fully clogging the shower drain. But because Whitman had been told she was not supposed to touch a black person's hair, she stood in 3 inches of murky water for another 10 minutes.
This was merely the latest in a spree of well-intentioned, yet bizarre, decisions made by Whitman in her attempts to be an ally. These include:
Refusing the master bedroom during move-in because of white guilt
Not letting her friends throw her a party on her birthday because her birthday is June 19th
Saying she didn’t want to take any of the dark meat on Thanksgiving
When Whitman’s roommate, Briana Jackson, learned of the shower fiasco, she gently informed Whitman that it was okay to touch the hair in the shower drain.
When reached for comment, Jackson expressed bemused disbelief.
“I’m confused because I have never seen her step up in any other way, but she thinks showering in her own filth is making an impact?” said Jackson.
“I mean, go off babe.”
