... to be black.
Black is an RACE. It shouldn't be a stereotype.
I'm part Black :/
I go to a majority black High School.
And if there is ONE thing I can't stand, it's when other black people feel the need to ACT ghetto just to impress their friends and FEEL black.
If you live in a middle class family with a big house and everything that you can ever want in terms of comfort and safety: you are not ghetto.
(Your PARENT'S might be if they grew up OUT of it.)
I'm not hating on people who actually ARE ghetto becasue of their lifestyle, but there is a big difference between trying to act ghetto just so you can conform to the usual image of a black person.
It's just STUPID >___< Also note; it's not ALL black people who DO act ghetto.
It's just a significant amount.
And they are just as much annoying to OTHER black people as non-black people
Some people feel that you need to act and dress a certain way, to really be a part of their culture.
If you're black but you don't listen to rap or loud music: then you're still black!
If you're black and you don't dress with your jeans hanging ALL the way down: you're still black.
If you are black and you don't need a weave(
) or you don't get a relaxer you're still black.
I could go ON AND ON about all these stereotypes that black people try to conform to, JUST to feel unified with the rest of the race.
Really it's all very stupid.
Just be yourself, and stop trying to fake your way into society.
Especially one that's worse off than you really are.
