Black is not a dirty word.

I used to work in retail where we received commission, requiring customers to identify us. Customers always felt uncomfortable referring to me as “black.” I started to notice this tendency in other areas of my life. The hesitation suggests a sub-conscious/conscious negative mental connotation with the word. I like my blackness, do they?
