For the past several months I've been asked to; sit on boards (I said 'yes' only to our local Habitat fundraising committee only because I already volunteer at building homes.), receive civic awards (I don't believe in awards - why draw attention to what one supposed to be doing anyway?), and I've been offered a buyout from a well-funded group to create Black clubs in white-owned developments. Politicians have asked me to take photographs with them or to sit on stage with them at their events.
'No, but Thank You.' seems to be the only words I speak these days.
