Wow, I feel like crying just typing this. Everyday someone has to make a comment about black people. Like in my school, there was a fight between to ghetto girls at lunch. All the black people were getting involved in it and all the white people just stood and laughed and got scared, etc . I just watched in disgust. Then, when I sat down at my lunch table, a white boy that sits at my table said" Ugh, more black girls. You know, this school would be better without black people." And then him and another white boy that sat at my table started categorizing blacks.( Stealers, Poor, Ghetto, Ugly) I just wanted to cry , so I went to the bathroom at my school and started crying silently. I'm not in any of those categories! They just think just because the majority of blacks are like that in my school, all blacks are like that!(Man I'm crying now..) Most black people in my school try to act ghetto , because they think that's the way black people act. I'm actually really smart and non-ghetto and people call me an oreo. I have all a's and a B and B-, and most people say that's really rare for a black person to have those grades. That's why they say the school would be better without blacks. I also live in a nice 2 story house in a nice neighborhood, so I'm not poor like lots of people say. I hate being categorized and stereotyped. And when I walk into stores in the mall, white people just stare and look at me like they're waiting for me to steal something. I don't steal! And, I want to be a pediatrician when I grow up, but I never see black people that are pediatricians. Maybe they are nurses or something but never pediatricians. And, I'm afraid the patients are going to say in their mind" Oh no, we have a black doctor... she's not gonna help us.." Also, many white boys in my school say blacks are ugly and they would never date a black girl. They say they never see black girls with long hair like whites. And if they do, they immediately think it's a weave or wig. That brings my self esteem down. And with all this hate blacks are getting my self esteem is REALLY low. I'm SO uncomfortable in my own skin. I'm thinking about buying skin bleaching cream from Walmart today to make my skin lighter. I even thought about killing myself.. and If this black hate gets really out of hand, I might just do it..
I don't feel loved at all in this world being a black..
Sweetheart,I feel the same way like you. I also hate being black as well. I feel being black is a curse & I hate the negative stereotypes place on black people like all black people are criminals which isn't true. I know I'm not a criminal. Never been to prison,never smoked crack,never inject herion in my veins,& never had HIV/AIDS or any STD's nor have a pass a disease to anyone. I'm a law abiding citizen that's doing the right thing & I & many others get blame for many things that's goes wrong in America & I hate that & that's the main why I also being black because of the negative stereotypes place on african americans.

that is when one needs to start pointing out to folks who do stereotype folks. that they are wrong.
.
just like the stereotype of asperger folks supposedly waving one's hands constantly. or that a aspie is supposedly mentally deficient.
.
though knowing the various stereotyping folks are doing to folks. one can take those and tear them apart. stereotype by stereotype. the thing is. some might act like the stereotype. and making it firmer in those who are stereotyping that group of folks.
.
getting back to aspies. some do wave their hands about. either in stress. or they are thinking very hard about a subject. and are using the hands in a way to direct those thoughts.

I totally agree with you on that one Sangelia. The stereotyping of people needs to stop. I'm tired of being stereotype by those who think I'm a thug which I'm not or being profiled for something I didn't do. I hate profiled as well & it hurts me & I get very angry. I'm not a teenager. I'm a grown man at age 42 & never been locked up a day in my life & I'm a decent person to get along with.

in my case, I have aspergers. I come by it due to my mom's genetics. my kid also has it.
.
one of the things that folks assume about aspergers. that all aspies are mentally handicapped. as in low intelligence. whereas to be diagnosed with it. the lowest level of intelligence is average. highest is mensa levels.
.
thanks to that Sandy Hook and what the media did with the stuff about the shooter. is that some are starting to assume that folks with aspergers are naturally violent.
.
some assume that it is entirely caused by vaccines. nope. they have been finding out that it has a very strong genetic reason. thing is, there are several possible chromosomes that are being eyed as reasons behind it.
.
thing is, is that what makes it hard to combat stereotyping. is that folks who do it. take something that might be slightly connected to someone in a group. and mix in a whole batch of lies.
.
like as I mentioned in that previous post of mine. in the case of aspies. the handmovments. some do it. and some folks in order to cut aspies down. claim that we all do it. and since aspergers is a form of autism. as in high functioning autism. and is part of a entire specturm. the other end being severe autism. some folks mix up the two.
.
while doing a bit of research. found out how Blacks and watermelons became intertwined in stereotyping. it is due to the fact that watermelons were and are endemic to southern Africa. where it is found growing wild.

Don't let the creator , the merciful hear you say that. He created you just the way you are. Don't take life for granted either. Pick up a book and read about your people. You will find out very quickly how jealous they are of us. They will spend their whole lifetime trying to convince us and the world that they are better than us. truth is, they are insecure about themselves, unhappy about their looks. did you know that they were the first people to have diseases?

I hear what you're saying Sunshine but it's easier said than done. I already know that whites were the first people to have diseases & want to blame blacks for it. SMH! I dont like being stereotyped just because of a few bad ones of our race you get where I'm coming from. Like I said,I'm not a thug,a criminal,a deadbeat dad because I dont have any children & never married & I never been to prison,never smoked crack,never kill anyone,never stole from anyone,nor have I deadly disease to my female partners. Like you said,these racists are insecure about themselves & you are right. I also need to stop saying that I'm going to kill myself because that's what they want me to do & I got to stop hating myself & start loving myself. I know it's hard but I got to try & do the best I can.

dont be sorry.
.
I'm happy that I am unique in my own ways. just like you and everyone else unique in other ways. it is what makes it interesting. be it here, be it away from the computer.
.
but on the other hand it is something that does make it easier for me to understand what is going on. is that due to it I do understand discrimination. not being wanted by various groups for things like at school, work, home life. being bullied for something for something that I was born with.

(((((OH Brina NOOOOOOOO)))))

is there a church support group you can go to? You may want to study a little (okay a LOT) deeper into the history of your people. Many think blacks are part of the tribe of Judah and Jesus was black. i don't knwo if any of this means anything to you or not.

whether he was or not, you and your people are NOT losers!!!! It makes NO DIFFERENCE what any troll or ignorant person says. All that matters is what God's word says.

Pleaes don't bleach your skin or hurt yourself. Whites only make up a very small percentage of the world. Pleaes don't hate white people for their lack of understanding. i am not excusing meanness at all, but please find some support somewhere.

I wish you knew how much God loved you! I realize when you are hurting, this can come accross as very irritating and cliche, but his passion and love for you is beyond anything you can imagine.
