As an avid traveler I often get asked how I deal with, you know, stares, when I travel in regions where not a lot of black people travel.
A prolonged stare is creepy enough to rattle even the most intrepid of travelers. As much as we don’t acknowledge it, we all experience travel differently. Sometimes on a much deeper level than we’re even aware of. And unfortunately, some experiences can be marred by how people react to us…physically.
