The Great Black out Of San Francisco. Part 1

The Couch Sports

                                                                WARNING

And no! I am no means talking about power outages. This next upcoming series will be talking exclusively about the Black Americans in San Francisco. We will go back to the Gold Rush era, talk about all the wars (From the Civil War to present), Economics, Sports, Culture, Climate, Politics, Unemployment, Crime, Entertainment, Drugs, and even Housing. We will bring you this series little by little to help you as the reader understand what it is like to be a Black American in San Francisco today.  When you read the title, what do you think I am talking about?

  1. I love this post man. Never been to San Francisco myself but I always associate with uppity Caucasians with the majority of them “fruity” if you know what I mean, although Atlanta may have that distinction as well smh. Hopefully I can make my way there one day and check it out. Looking forward to the rest of the series too. Keep up the good work.🖒🖒🖒

  2. Interesting. I never really think of cities like this. We lived in Rochester, NY for 20 years. My children grew up in mixed neighborhoods so I thought most cities were like ours until we moved away.

  3. I have never been to San Francisco before, and after this I never will. Those backhanded compliments about speaking so well would’ve drove me nuts. And they swear they are being so kind by telling you that. As if you need the white mans validation. When you call them out on stuff like that, the ‘white fragility’ comes out like cockroaches in the dark. They cannot stand any black man having some integrity about himself. Unfortunately, we all have to deal with this when we go to work, because we have to deal with customers who hold antiquated stereotypes of black folks.
