First time in 6 years

So I went to school this morning. And like all mornings, I took the train. I sat down in front of a male TSA agent. No big deal. The next stop, a woman TSA agent gets on, and says to the guy behind me that hey should sit together since they are going to the same place.

I didn't think anything of it. I just like to people-watch andeavesdrop.

Well, I rested my head against the back of the seat like you always do. Well, all of sudden the lady stats banging on the back of my seat. I turn around and she said that my hair was hanging into her space. Iapologizedand pulled it to hang over my shoulders (In the meantime, no it wasn't in her space. It was braced between my back and the backrest). I did notice that the woman was black. That will be more important later.

So here I go, minding my own business, when she taps my seat again. I lifted my head up a bit, but didn't turn around this time. A few seconds later she did it again. At the next stop, while people were getting off the train, she switched seats. The male TSA guy looked and me, an I at him. He waved his hand at me on the down low to tell me that I wasn't doing anything wrong. He must have seen the annoyance in my eyes.

So what happened here? I wasn't about to get into an argument about my locks on a crowded train with a cop. On the street, maybe. But not here. People were trying to sleep, study, work, etc...

Do you think she really had that much of an issue with my locks? Could it have been because I was a white guy with locks? I really don't know

In 6 years, I've only had compliments from black women and men alike. Only once did I get a black woman ask me "why do white people grow lock?" She didn't ask it mean. Just curious. I told her that everyone has different reasons. Some spiritual, so not.

This was truly the first badexperienceoutside of my family
