Id like to think that you make us look like the different so that you could be the normal. That you seperate us from you because you are intimidated. That you take away ours and call it yours because you are jealous. That you feel a must to discriminate and hate to help better your own self esteem.
But this, is not the way its supposed to be. Why is it so hard to live in peace and harmony? Live together, love each other and help the ones in need. Appreciate, cooperate, take a stand and lead. Work together, build some trust and soon we will succeed. Stop the war, stop the hunger and get rid of all your greed. The human species can't seem to do anything but to run in circles so this is quite near impossible, isn't it?
Honestly though, this disgusts me. You think that your racist comment was okay? Was your joke actually funny to you? Because your little joke that you find so fucking funny, is my reality. How can you not understand that you force me to think about the colour of my skin when you repeatedly remind me of the difference in you and I. Or when you repeatedly remind me that there is no difference in you and I. Every new place that I go to make me hesitate on whether or not people are staring because I'm the only black person around or simply because I'm new. Every old place I go to remind me of every tiny corner that's actually a safe place for me to be in. I don't always feel like someone wants to kill me but I often feel like I'm in danger. However, that's not good enough to be an issue of importance.
And while we're at it, I have another question for you. Why do you assume that you will always be better than I in every situation? You do realize that I've had the same education as you, right? Because when we play Trivia Crack, you always look surprised when I win and you lose. Even though I can count your winnings on one hand and I cannot count mine on two. And why do you assume that my winnings depend on me being streetsmart? I've had everything handed to me on a silver fucking platter, I'm booksmart because I never had to be streetsmart. And when I have long braids or untidy nailpolish, I suddenly look ghetto? I understand that it can be a bit difficult to comprehend that I, a black young woman, raised by another one of those black single mothers, have been raised in a safe neighborhood with a great education. It's fine though. As long as you read this and understand that you need to get rid of the general stereotype of black people that you have in your head.
I am not writing this to you who call yourself a racist. I am writing this to you who are not racist, but who are stuck with the stereotypical view that society has brainwashed you into believing is the only truth behind the background and purpose of a young black woman. I only want you to understand that I know that you, as my friend is not a racist but having been brainwashed by society, the stereotypical view that you are not recognizing that you still have in your brain, is racist.
