Inauguration Day poet Amanda Gorman says that a security guard followed her home claiming that she “looked suspicious,” then just as quickly as he trailed her, disappeared without apology. 

“A security guard tailed me on my walk home tonight. He demanded if I lived there because “you look suspicious.” I showed my keys & buzzed myself into my building. He left, no apology. This is the reality of black girls: One day you’re called an icon, the next day, a threat,” Gorman tweeted

“In a sense, he was right. I AM A THREAT: a threat to injustice, to inequality, to ignorance. Anyone who speaks the truth and walks with hope is an obvious and fatal danger to the powers that be,” she continued.
