He speaks to the psychic damage done to Black men on a near daily basis.

How do you describe the pain felt when you, dressed in a suit and tie and carrying a brief case, catch the elevator door in your office building, at 9:00a.m. … only to have the white woman, you just saw enter the elevator, take one look at you, clutch her purse to her chest and push by you to make her “escape”? You know it was an “escape” because approximately one minute later, you see that same woman exiting the elevator bank next to the one you just got off of.

Now, I suppose, the woman was suddenly struck with milk-mouth and she got off the elevator to get a drink of water. But we can only tell ourselves that; but so many times.
