You dont need to be Ghetto... by Animegirl300 You dont need to be Ghetto... by Animegirl300
... 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 :P

Some people feel that you need to act and dress a certain way, to really be a part of their culture.
But why?
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(:lol:) 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.

I'm black, too. I would be considered by my peers as acting "white." since I speak standard enligsh and not in dumbonics or don't share their same interest into rap and gangster culture. With the addition of liking Video-Games,sci-fi, fantasy, science-fantasy, tabletop and rpg games, heavy metal, a little bit of education. All the things white people are to enjoy. 

I could just say who gives a damn on what they say, but apparently I've been guilt tripped by my parents for liking heavy metal may disassociate me with other black kids. I asked about the previous rule of not caring what people think of you or me, but this somehow managed to transcend that.

A black woman at the day program I go to actually got accused of "acting white" just because she doesn't act ghetto. That's just messed up - black people can be classy too. They're not all ghetto. I feel bad for the black people who act normal - they don't want to be associated with the ghetto hoodrats.

I know too many ghetto rats where I live (and they keep coming! D: ), and so it is very nice to see this stamp. I respect blacks like you. But I hate anyone (black, white, etc) who act ignorant and stereotypically. I salute you for making this stamp!
