I was lounging in the garden, in front of one of the hospitals, working on some stories, when a security officer turns to my niece and says: “What’s up black girl?”. This stopped me in my tracks and I turned to him and asked him, what are you trying to achieve by saying that? He replied: “It was a joke.”
