How the Logic of "Friendzoning" Would Work If Applied in Other Instances:

  • *Man walks into a store and finds employee*

  • Man:

    Alright, I've had enough. Why haven't you guys hired me?!

  • Employee:

    Uh...well sir, when did you put in your application?

  • Man:

    I never filled out an application.

  • Employee:

    Well sir, we can't consider you for employment if you've never filled out an application.

  • Man:

    No, that's bullshit, because I've been coming here for years now, and every single time I tell you all how much I love this store and how much I appreciate your customer service, unlike some of your other customers might I add!

  • Employee:

    Well, but that doesn't-

  • Man:

    AND I even told you that I didn't have a job!

  • Employee:

    But sir, that doesn't indicate to us that you would like a job at our store. And again, if you've never filled out an application, we can't consider you. Besides, we're not hiring.

  • Man:

    OH! Not hiring, HA! What a laugh. I see your store go through seasonal workers all the time. They come and go like nothing, but you won't consider me as a part-time employee even though I KNOW you've been looking for workers to fill positions? That's insane!

  • Employee:

    Sir, we've been looking to hire a few people for management positions. Do you have any management experience?

  • Man:

    Well no, but what does that matter?

  • Employee:

    ...Well sir, that's what we're looking for. You won't be suitable for the position without management experience.

  • Man:

    Oh that's such a load of crap. You know, you'll be waiting around a long time for a manager if you don't lower your standards a little. Who cares if someone knows how to manage a store? I LOVE this store and I'm willing to work here, that's all that should matter to you.

  • Employee:

    That...doesn't make any sense.

  • Man:

    NO! I'm done. This is over. From now on, no more Mr. Nice Guy.

  • Employee:

  • Man:

  • Employee:

  • Man:

    Fuck you, slut.

I am not Mike Brown. I am white. I am middle class. I am female. I am small. I am not considered a threat. When police see me they see someone who looks like them. They see their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, themselves. I am not at risk of being shot by police for existing while black. I am not at risk of being shot while unarmed. I am not at risk of being shot while armed with nothing more than a BB gun. I am not at risk of being shot for reaching for my wallet. I am privileged.
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged.
