Why peole wont sit next to me on Bart
I am a tall black male weighing around 215lbs. I find that even when there is a free seat next to me on a packed bart train I am always the last option to sit next to. I carry myself very well, am polite and dont play my ipod at obnoxious levels. Most importantly I exercise good hygiene. Are people scared of me? Why does this constantly happen to me? Im in my mid 20s and am just baffled by this! I think its because people see the news and equate every young black male as violent rude and dangerous.A classic case of some bad apples ruining the bunch but If you would sit next to me-you would realize I am everything but!! Thank you fellow bart riders!
