In my CNA class there is a guy who i believe is Sudanese or Somalian, he has a extremely dark pigmentation and with his accent I believe that is where he is from, we have a lot of refugees in our city, he is definitely not African American though. Today I wore a lace shelf-bra cami under a shirt that has a bit of a plunge where cleavage would be and i'm just a tad afraid of certain "girls" showing so i always wear a cami under those kinds of shirts, especially this one. I get to class and a previous group that had met in the room had grouped the tables together so instead of rows two tables were pushed together. when i sat down he was straight across from me and unconsiously i grabed the top edge of my shirt in the center and pulled it up. As soon as i did that this guy grabbed his bookbag and booked it out of the room I thought i offended him severly! I know locally a lot of the women refugees wear long dresses and the shawl-like things over their hair, not necessairly covering their face like the Muslim type of apparel does. I looked at the other girls who were sitting next to me and was like "was that because of me, did i offend him??? I didn't mean to!" He never came back to class. i stayed after class and asked the instructor if he left because of another conflict and explained what happened. she assured me that he left for another reason. I was so paranoid and felt the entire class like i had made him uncomfortable and caused him to leave without meaning to.

THose other women are Muslim, too, most likely if they are from Somalia or Sudan, just with different attire. Some cover their whole body, some the body and face, most the hair.

You were being modest not offensive.
