Several folk have told me to not tell what my definition of a Special C is. But the thrill is gone and I need to go ahead and tell it so I can move on to something new because that saying has gotten old but I will continue to use it forever.
I remember when I 1st heard Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II say Racist White Folk and Safe Negroes I knew I had to use it. These terms are used because I am not talking about all white folk and all black folk. I knew it would agitate those folk who felt guilty. What tickles me is how some folk took on the title saying I was talking about them when they were not even in the conversation. But most of all, I don’t know them and they don’t know me.
When I heard Steve Harvey say Ignant I knew I had to use it. I knew folk would come after me saying I can’t spell. I knew it would agitate the hell out of them.
But then after Ignant Racist White Folk began to call me things for example most recent a Shaved M. I have not thought anything about it because I never claimed it because I know who I am and whose I am so I have never questioned what a Shaved M is. Several folk black and white told me the M stands for Monkey. Actually when I mentioned it to Lindell John Kay the Rocky Mount Telegram Reporter he said it was Monkey. I asked LJK what did he really thing a Special C is. He said a Special Caucasian.
It has been interesting to see how some white folk took the C and made it what they wanted it to be. It has been interesting to see how black folk especially those who know me to go along with the white folk.
What was more interesting is how folk that don’t know me put themselves in my conversations when I used Special C saying I was talking about them when I don’t know them and never heard of them.
Folk on this day Monday April 22, 2019 my official definition of a Special C is a Special Caucasian.
