A Marquette University student ignored a boy Friday who dressed like a thug and spoke informal language toward her near 91st and Silver Spring. The student said she brushed off the boy in front of two other children who walked with him.
Casby Bias, a journalism major in the Diederich College of Communication, said she didn't acknowledge the boy in front of his peers because she thought they needed confirmation that the attire and slang the boy expressed "wouldn't get the girls."
"You should've seen the little boy; walking in the center, acting like he was all that, dressed up in a blue hat, muscle shirt and a red bandana around his face," Bias said. "Before we passed each other he had the nerve to say 'Sup.'"
Bias said she hoped that her message got through to the boy and his friends.
"It's not OK to approach anyone like that," Bias said. "Hopefully other girls their age will act the same way I did."
