Confessions of an "Oreo" (vent) a little long
I see so many black people ready to fight white people over racism that may or may not exist in certain situations, but why not get mad over the "racism" amongst ourselves? Its not even always about the light skinned/ dark skinned issue. I will use myself as an example...
I am black, but not from the "hood". I went to private school, was in many activities and spoke properly, or mom would've been angry! We didn't use slang or broken english in her home. That doesn't sound bad right?
Apparently, I'm stuck up and whatnot. Really?
Now, I understand many people may not always be able to help their current situations and I sympathize. But don't be mad at me because I was blessed with a great mom who busted her ASS to care for me, without help or gov assistance.
Sorry I speak too "proper" for you. This is where the oreo comment came. I was told that I was black on the outside but white on the inside. Lol, sorry... I don't speak hoodrat (j/k).
I'm rambling, but it pisses me off. And black folks wonder why we as a whole get talked about. Hell, we talk about EACH OTHER!! We need to get it together within our communities first... How the hell do we expect others to respect us when we (general) don't respect ourselves and each other?
Ok, sorry! I'm done, thanks for reading!
