Bim Adewunmi: The everyday microaggressions I experience as a black woman in Berlin

~
OK, here goes the opinion of another English (, Spanish and German) speaking person, also with Yoruba ancestry (I was born black (more like multi-racial) in Cuba), who doesn’t exactly sport an Afro (more like kinky hair) and, mostly out of laziness, regulary shaves his head
~
I was last in Berlin (a city I would admit I have always liked even though I don’t like a bit die mittleeuropaische Zeit) a few years ago and I felt a bit like “where is everybody?” ;-) (people have told me I would feel the same if I visit Minnesota U.S.A.)
~
To a large extent it may relate to the fact that when I went to Germany it was as a student and I was “young” and impressionable, but I did learn the good in them, to the point of considering myself (by exposure) a bit “German”, even though German people/culture themselves could not even begin to understand why I found this and that “impressive” to begin with, for example German “Sachlichkeit” I love (maybe aspie me is conditioned to thoroughly love it) or maybe I just don’t see race or sex as political issues in general to begin with, but at some point I saw past what you call their “everyday microaggressions”
~
I remember right before I left my country that my father told me with a concerned face “not to get upset if someone called me black” and I wondered why would I get upset … “I am black after all” (it felt kind of getting upset for people calling me by my name and people in Cuba call each other “black” in a friendly, neutral way as if they were calling each other “dude” (in the U.S.)), but then I understood what he meant …
~
> I thought about something that comedian Dave Chappelle performed back in 2000, in which he says some encounters leave you feeling like you’re watching a scene from a movie.
~
Those kinds of “experiences” accompany all kinds of learning processes. Part of it is that German people (for example as they compare to gringos) are very disinhibited when it comes to their opinions even though they may not exactly be solicited.
~
You would not hear the end of it if I start telling stories about my experiences regarding “micro”, all-out, tacit, subtle, … aggressions. For example in my early tweinties days after I had gotten there while taking a shower I very anxiously noticed two girls that mindlessly came with their gossip and totally naked into the boys’ showers. I would not consider that exactly an agression, but I nervously and without knowing what to make of it walked out of there and, they noticing I was black, stopped their gossip to mercilessly eye me … then a friend of mine explained to me those girls simply heard the hot water running in the boys showers and didn’t feel like waiting for the cold water to run through the pipes during that super cold winter … and that they would not understand at all if I would try to make anything out of that chance encounter … As Catholic Polish people living in their common borders so well know German people like to free themselves of their clothes whenever they can probably thinking that just air exposure will tan them …
~
> The staring never really feels malicious, just curious and rude.
~
I can’t get how you can see anything rude in some kid’s reaction. Some old ladies once did a bet my (very dark hair) was a wig and pulled it exactly as you describe but in my case they kept talking to themselves unperturbed about the bet … In some other ocassion I took a long trip to listen to a children choir (I grew up in a family of musicians), but when I arrived they almost refused to sell me a ticket and keep explanining to me how I could take the bus back to Dresden ;-)
~
I did learn German pretty fast to the point of writing poetry in that language
~
https://hsymbolicus.wordpress.com/category/gedichter/
~
before I did in my mother tongue (I found the language (and then languages in general) fascinating) and I have never protected myself from exposure and in addition to that I tend to be a natural Einzelgaenger, so I could understand from where they were coming from and let me just tell you that being loudly yelled out those pesky “BlutSchande” in a bus while I was there with my girlfriend by a group of youth was (the least to say) not nice. Even my “white” Cuban friends (some of them German descendants) were outraged when they experienced those personal (micro?) aggressions to themselves and other people, but I found them mostly stupid when they were (only and verbally) towards me and I could still see when the point was joking around, like that time while in a bar when I did notice two guys who came from behind some girlfriends and I did (physically) fight them. Police took all of us out and even though I was the one whom they had seen giving a blow to one of the guys (who kept joking about “me having two girls and them having none”) after it all was clarified (“Die haben meinen Arsch angefasst” ;-)) and even though they dind’t like exactly like “Scheisswauslaenders” they expelled the two guys from that nightclub
~
> In Alexanderplatz, almost a month to the day, another stranger plunged his hand into my afro and laughed. That night as I braided my hair out of reach of strangers’ hands, I double-checked the dates of my flight home. I can’t wait to be anonymous again.
~
After those experiences you won’t be ever able to be “anonymous” again even if you “go back”. I did spend in Germany 4+ very intensive years in that explains to a large extent why our experiences towards pretty much the same issues are so different, but I wonder if you had a chance to visit the Deutsche Museum where you could have seen how they will teach you about their own history (specially those dark Nazi past times, which is what we really want to learn about) next time (if you can and want) you should pay yourself a ticket to the U.S. and try to find anything resembling that level of honesty about their own history. I would suggest going to the National Museum of the American Indian in DC (they have many museums in the same area)
~
Im Detschem Museum you will see horrible torture, killing machines with extensive technical and historical explanations about those most despictable acts against humanity. When you ask gringos why aren’t their museums like that they ask you (I am not kidding you) “What do you mean?”, then they (those who know “what I mean”) tell you “… but doing this would be like accepting that that was right”, or the greatest of them all so far … “if you go to the museum of the U.S. military you will find out about how U.S. soldiers suffered the consecuences of using chemical weapons against the Vietnamese” … Now you don’t have to know so well about the proof of Goedel’s incompleteness theorems to be able to see the huge bug in that kind of thinking

yoani’s (“then and now”) …

March 15, 2013

~
¡muy bién¡ ¡la Yoani me ha convencido¡
~
Aunque creo que hay un communication gap (muy normal) y que, por ejemplo, los panelistas en Brazil la llevaron demasiado suave (al punto que la entrevista por momentos parecía un montaje ;-)), veo claramente que Yoani sigue batiendo sus alas y siendo honesta consigo misma/sus principios. Yo hace mucho tiempo:
~
penultimosdias.com/2008/12/18/gallita-y-gallinas/
~
tuve la intuición de que el fenómeno iniciado por ella no significaba el final de los Castros, sino que crearía “realidades paralelas”. Es que nos los cubanos somos tan orilleros que vemos como algo super heróico y transcendental que ella sencillamente haya tenido los ovarios de no usar pseudónimos y dar la cara, no sólo exponiéndose, sino dándole la cara (facing) a los problemas que tenemos y llamándo a las cosas por su nombre. Fíjense como aquí mismo la inmensa mayoría de nos usamos pseudónimos y no sólo eso, sino que lo vemos como algo “inteligente” …
~
yo temía que ella entrase entonces en una fase de Carlos-Alberto-Montanerización: eso de criticar a los Castros (¡algo tan fácil¡) pero, y ahí se le va la catalina loma abajo, hablar de los yumas sencilla y tranquilamente como si estuviese explicando la flotación de los cuerpos sólidos en los líquidos, o la importancia de las enzimas para la ingeniería genética … ¡¡¡el ve todo lo que hacen los yumas tan “natural” y “lógico”, … inclusive enmarcado en cierta moralidad sacrosanta y axiomática¡¡¡ Como notamos muy claramente los que vivimos en el exterior las cosas no suelen ser tan sencillas que con una negación formulaica a lo “Yankees sí, Cuba no” lo resolveríamos todo
~
yo encuentro que aún divaga mucho: “soy un electrón libre”, “dicen mis amigos que el embargo es bueno” (sin explicar (please, could you?!?)), eso de volver el que la gente en Cuba (incluyendo a los pobres, lo que para el resto de LA no tiene por qué ser evidente) tenga definitivamente un mayor alto grado de alfabetización, “mi abuela decía que la mentira corre cien años y la verdad la alcanza en un día”, … sí Yoani tu abuela tuvo razón en principio y eso es cierto con respecto a todos no sólo a los Castros, pero en estos tiempos el asunto es que hay miles de mentiras corriendo por y a todos lados y sí, el populismo y las comparsas políticas nos han afectado mucho en LA, pero, ¿fué, digamos, Carlos Andrés Pérez toda pulcritud moral y justeza socio-económica? Eso como Batista en Cuba sin duda tiene que ver mucho con el fenómeno del Chavismo.
~
a cualquier persona técnica le daría hasta risa que ella (que no sabe ni carajos de esas cosas verticalmete (no es su profesión ni tiene el entrenamiento técnico básico para entenderlas a fondo) aunque se considere así misma un “hacker postmodernista” (¿Qué divinos carajos podría significar eso? ¿Qué es eso del postmodernismo?)) le dé tanta importancia a la tecnología y hable de cosas de las que no sabe no sólo por hablar “no más” (como dicen los mexicanos), sino que verbaliza algo desde el punto de vista político, aunque no exista la más mínima relación:
~
penultimosdias.com/2012/09/10/apagonazo/
~
Además, Yoani, please! Eso de aparecerse con una peluca rubia a husmear reuniones del ICAIC (al menos busca una organización más “oficialista”/retrogada, ¿no crees?) Nos que vivimos asediados por los constantes absurdos de los “celebritries” (¿Oyeron eso? Jennifer López se s!ng0 a su perro y puso un video en youtube … ¿y qué hizo Marc Anthony? … (eso aquí no para)) que sólo busca aumentar/monetizar hits in social networks no matter what. Si le cuentas a cualquier persona en el yuma que agarraste a un policía por los huevos (bajo las circumstancias que hayan sido) lo más probable es que crean que hablan con un espíritu/a ghost
~
Yo lo que quiero es oírla cuando descubra que en la yuma hay más CDR/controladera que en Cuba y que para eso usan nada menos que … yes!, ¡”tecnología”!. Que los periódicos de aquí sistemáticamente le mienten a la gente. ¿Cuando empezará a aprender Inglés para que note por sí misma la similitud tan mortificante aunque a veces baratamente sutil entre el Granma y los periódicos de “la libertad” con toda su 5ta enmienda y pretensiosa parafernalia leguleya?
~
pgdp.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=751338
~
(o pgdp.net/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=5 & (search “lies …”))
~
El Granma miente a la cara, aquí mienten y desvirtúan realidades constante y sistemáticamente “because we have our believes”, “we must have a ‘responsible’ media”, … inclusive poco a poco la desfachatez es mayor (lo que no necesariamente debe tomarse como algo malo) ya los medias aquí le dicen a la gente a la cara (on your face) que no entienden esas expectativas que se han creado de ellos de que deben decir la verdad ;-) (para aquellos que no entiendan/conozcan a los yumas, ellos quieren decir algo así como que decir la verdad no es la pincha de ellos sino más bien de social workers y activistas sociales, que lo de ellos es vender, well vender “papel impreso”)
~
¿A Yoani no le parece un poco raro (al menos un tantico) que el mismo gobierno que mantiene a Bradley Manning y a Julian Assange preso la invite a ella, a dar charlas sobre “libertad de expresión”?
~
Yo quisiera ver su reacción cuando note que esa metáfora del pájaro cuidado pero enjaulado es bien compleja que como dice mucha gente y entiendo yo “freedom is to a large extent a quality of implementation issue” (la libertad is en gran medida un asunto relativo a la calidad de la implementación); cuando descubra que es una pérdida de tiempo bien ridícula eso de estarse cuestionándo que ¿ETECSA? ayuda al estado cubano a espiar a sus ciudadanos. ¡Todas las compañías de comunicaciones lo hacen en el mundo entero! So, what is her point? Yo quisiera escuchar su opinión cuando descubra que a los niños aquí los adoctrinan comercial y políticamente también. De hecho cuando pueda constatar y comparar como aquello de “seremos como el ché” es inócuo comparado con el brainwashing consumerístico y feral al que someten a los chamas aquí en el yuma desde una temprana edad y que los padres no pueden hacer nada en contra (hasta venden los espacios dentro de los libros como shelf space a las compañías para que le hagan propaganda a sus productos), quisiera que lea un libro de historia para niños yumas, cuando se entere que más del 40% de los niños del Bronx en una ciudad tan rica como NYC viven por debajo del nivel de pobreza
~
city-data.com/poverty/poverty-Bronx-New-York.html
~
y que inclusive dentro de ese mismo distrito en que supuestmente hay tanta pobreza una escuela pública puede recibir 13 veces más dinero PÚBLICO que otra (y no, no se trata de que una reciba $4 y la otra $17, sino $4 y $52). Sólo un poquitín de decencia moral es suficiente para quiestionarse uno ¿cómo pude ser eso posible? …

~
Siempre me ha resultado interesantemente gracioso y poético aquello de Mafalda cuando dijo que “los caballos engordan cuando se comen los ojos de los amos” ;-); de como uno mismo nota que y como se ha equivocado. Recuerdo un carcelero que repetía el dicho güajiro “cortando huevos se aprende a capar”. Uno como que cree que “capar” tiene algún linaje filosófico latín y quizás hasta griego, pero na` “capar” es muy primaria y sencillamente -cortar huevos-
~
Creo que a la Yoani le faltan “horas de vuelo” y “cortar (seguir cortando) muchos huevos”. Ovarios y temple no le faltan y le haría muy bien dejarse aconsejar un tanto por Elizardo
~
Gracias Yoani
RCL
