  • Im black and I dont care that anon:40 put black
    Im also white...haha half white half black
    I dont say half caucasion, half african american

    But to answer the question
    because there's strange as people selling drugs on every corner, staring u down, u know they have guns, u dont wanna stop ur car at any stop signs cuz they are not afraid to take ur car right from ur hands, and cops never go in the neighborhoods because they'll get shot at too, unless their "dirty cops"

    the list goes on, I hate going to Oakland...My hubby is from there and his foster mom lives right in the middle of the worst part and I just run every stop sign, light if I can. I dont feel safe there without a gun of my own, but since we dont have one I carry around a hunting knife...no joke

    and Im not full white/caucasion so I could only imagine how they feel
