... the other Black experience

Don't you hate it when people look at you like you belong in a zoo!!!!!!!!!!!!? What the FUCK!!!

I hate when people look at me and are like your so pretty for a "Dark-skinned Girl". Then when they see my tattoos they're are always assuming that I must be from somewhere outside the city of Flint or that I'm not black at all. Why are people so judgmental and always want to put people in these categories. Since I have a darker complexion I guess I'm not suppose to be good looking or even of the Black race. Well guess what even though I am part Cuban I consider myself Black! And for all the people out there who think I didn't grow up in the city of FLINT, I've grown up there for the past 23 years excluding my year in the U.S.V.I. but I'm born and raised Flint town girl. Just because I have a lot of Tattoos and listening mainly to Rock music doesn't mean I'm not and especially doesn't mean I'm trying to act "WHITE"?What is acting "BLACK" and what is acting "WHITE"? Why does everything negative have to be thrown in the Black Category? I hate when people try to make me feel bad for the way that I act. Hell I just think that they're jealous of the fact that while their listening to The Distillers in secret I'm fucking blasting my shit for the whole fucking world to hear.......So don't take it out on me cuz you don't have the fucking courage to be yourself. I have been brought up to learn that we all are different and the world would be such a better place if we can accept people for who they are and what they look like. We are PEOPLE! I HATE FUCKING ZOOS!!!!!

oh goodness i get this all the time here in oklahoma! It's pretty bad actually. My mom raised my sisters and i to know that it it way easier to simply be yourself than to try to be like someone else. I use those words of wisdom everyday and they have essentially made me into the person i am today!

Yeah I hate when people tell me I'm so pretty for a dark-skinned girl too. Ha, sorry I'm buggin'.
Yeah colorism and closed-mindedness are garbage. And when folks give me the zoo animal look, I just growl from behind my cage...

Isnt it somthin'? I mean people will always try to put you in a category; that way they know how to identify you, after they assimulate you with an identity they then feel as if they have triumphed over your being. Like police profiling. Ohhh these fools could never be more wrong!! We are of something that they couldnt comprehend. We are a turn where thier minds cant bend. A product of natural defiance against those that choose to follow those that are following.
Is'nt it great to be..... us.
