Cape Town Stories 8

I’m getting out of the car just as a white parking attendant angrily chases away a black man begging. I tell him not to be so rude to people,and that he has no authority over what people do on a public street, but as was to be expected said white parking attendant does not appreciate a black woman calling him out on anything, so he quickly turns to vulgar language (okay, so maybe I swore first, but, you know). I do not back down and so he finally turns to telling me to go back to my own country. That was a first to me: White homeless South African man tells South African WOC to go back to her country.
