THAT IS THE COMMENT OF THE WEEK!
There is no "handbook" on how to be "black". You just "ARE". By birth. What you read, eat, how you dance or can't, basketball skills, what music you like or command of the english language has no barring on your blackness.
All of those are sterotypes........
Morg can smell triple posts from a mile away.
Like another mod and nipples?
Or another and rape.
Or another and triple posts about raped nipples.
Or another whose every post is like a triple rape (nipples optional).
Wonder how you get L_S to come running?
We need a white thread!!!
We need a Bratwurst-Over-Rice Lover's Thread.
Yes, I agree. That was my point.
With that said, I also know many blacks who also have an identity crisis too and cannot bear the idea of being African-American.
I'm proud to be black. However I pick and choose for myself which aspects of African-American culture to embrace along with the best elements of other cultures that I have grown to enjoy and respect.
However I never forget my roots nor those people who I share a common history with.
Or FF2 was a horrible movie. 3....2....1....
Someone post a sexy Hoff pic.
I said running, not killing
(tearing up my "black like Me" Manuals.)
I read "Black like Me."
I think so long as you're black and don't have a "I hate black people and don't want anything to do with them" vibe going, it's pretty much fine. I have known people that are black and grew up around every race but black and, while it may not be intentional, seem to skew towards that opinion. Haha, I already mentioned my little cousin who basically goes to an all white school, came home one day and told her mom, "I'm not black, I'm white." That kind of **** does need to be nipped in the bud.
Bingo! I agree.
Its also call self hate or lack of self esteem, identity crisis, etc.
Now you are arguing nature over nuture.
Bottom line, be proud of where you come from, don't wear it on your sleeve or like a badge of honor.
A) It's not like you had any part of being black, white, asian.
B) I get annoyed when people list their race as their #1 defining quality. I can think of 20 other things about me before I even get to race.
My character is more important than my ethnicity.
^Well, that's like the asian chick that is disgusted by any and all things asian. You don't have to walk around in a kimono and whatever, but at the same, it's not needed to act like your people make you sick to your stomach.
