Rain On My Parade?
According to anecdotes I've read, women of African descent have experienced incidents where they were mistaken for prostitutes. Seems as though many of the prostitutes in various parts of Spain are illegal immigrants or refugees from the continent of Africa and they're very active and aggressive. For that reason, ALL women of dark skin are taken for prostitutes. It's difficult for me to believe anyone could be that ignorant. There's something to be said for common decency; that you wouldn't approach anyone that way unless they send you a signal. I understand things aren't so bad once they realize you're . Umph, ain't that somethin'.
So, what am I going to do? I'm goin' to Spain, ya'll! This will not dampen my excitement. I'm just thankful I know this may happen, so I won't be taken by surprise. I'll also be sure to follow custom and dress conservatively and ignore any ignorance I may encounter.
Keep me in your prayers, yall.
