Sometimes I forget that less than a full generation ago things were completely different. I wouldn’t be able to eat at certain restaurants, hang out or date someone outside of my race, or even attend the university I am now. Some of the greatest people I have ever met are outside of my race and I would have never had the chance to meet them. I know that there are still a lot of things wrong in this day and age, but I would like to take this moment to be thankful for the strides we’ve made.
Ok I’ve freakin had it with ignorant people!
So the basis of this rant is based on people saying that I am not my race because I don’t act the way that I stereotypically should. On this internship I’m at, theres this guy who is pretty cool. We’ve became pretty good friends but he continues to say that I’m “white washed.” -___- Well excuse the FUCK out of me if I dont measure up to the stereotypical image of black people running around gang banging and robbing liquor stores. Just because I listen to all types of music (except country), choose to speak in an educated manner, am getting an education, and I don’t know… avoid robbing banks all of the sudden I’m not Black anymore!? It is seriously irritating me and in a second he’s gonna get the image of what he really thinks a black man should be when I kick his ass!!!
Sorry guys you can tell this is a sensitive topic ://
Someone ask me if I’m African… Or just regular black -_-
