Okay usually it doesnt happen to me often since I keep my friends and the people I hang with to a minimum but when I do get around ignorant people who judge me based on stereotypical opinions and what I should like. It really pisses me off! It makes me hate everything that goes along with those stereotypes. I strive be as far away as possible from them... Don't get me wrong I love being an African American(Black)
Don't get me on to the "Just because list" and alot of different ethnicity's can verify with me on this
I'm black doesn't mean I listen to rap
I'm black doesn't mean I drink Kool-Aid
I'm black doesn't mean every and any black man on the street is my father
I'm black doesn't mean I have to smoke weed and drink all the time
I'm black doesn't mean I wear babyphat,south pole,etc urban clothing brands
I'm black doesn't mean I say "izzle" after all of my words (and trust me this still happens)
I'm black doesn't mean I don't know anything about anything
I'm black DOESN'T MEAN I KNOW EVERY FUCKING RAP SONG ON THE RADIO AND EVERY FUCKING DANCE THAT GOES ALONG WITH IT!!!!!!!!!!!!
there's more to this list but I cant think of anymore right now that relate to me
But I'm sick of it and its not something that I can just wish away because people are always going to be ignorant, because they don't want to face the fact that people can be different and like other things besides what the world has stereotyped them as.
I'm different and its hard for me to relate with other people on what I like (especially in Dallas) where I live
I'm the kind of girl that Likes Hard Core 70s/80s Rock and Roll, 80's New Wave, Indie,Soul,Blues, I'm the girl who doesn't dress like everyone else, I don't do my hair all the time, I really don't care that much about my appearance...A real "Plain Jane" lol
but trust me I'm not boring at all!....
I just hate stereotypes...
