I just feel embarrassed by some of the aspects of my culture. I don't like the way we sometimes behave.

Like how some people talk about black women and call us fat. It’s true. I can’t even defend us against statements like that. Why are most of us so fat? I hate being black.

Don't say that. Get out of AA culture. Find a Black dude who doesn't want to be in the AA culture. I got out of the AA culture recently.
Please explain. I guess I just hate our culture. It's embarrassing. I'd like to leave the African American culture too.

Being fat has nothing to do with your race. The culture is at fault. Don't hate being Black, but hate your culture.
But what does culture have to do with who you are and how you represent yourself as an individual?

Because people tend to lump as all together and not see us as individuals. I don't want anything to do with blackness or black culture. I don't want to be seen as the black woman but just a woman. I'd like to escape my blackness and all it stands for and just be viewed as an individual.

I don't blame you. But there are black guys at my company who don't really act like ghetto negros.. Some black people can be civil and intelligent.. I really believe its your culture..

If I were white my life would be better. If I looked white I would be treated as such and not have to experience the constant racism and discrimination that I do now.

Our culture is something you shouldn't embrace. Our culture is what the mass media says it is. You have to be an individual.
Do you find yourself actually being treated as an individual? I find no matter how I act, I am still thought of and treated as just another black person at the end of the day. That's why I'd rather not be black at all.

Our culture is self destructive. It courages us to join gangs, sell drugs, not care about our bodies, and kill each other.
I don't think our culture should be blamed for that.......that comes from parent neglect, lack of involvement with your children and criminals. Those are the people who are responsible. Not the black culture.

Parent Neglect and boredom, peer pressure, and wanting to belong causes the child to join a gang.

Low self esteem, causes you not to care about your body..

Killing of black men comes from ignorance, from the individual. The culture is not responsible. But that killer is..........

Selling of drugs, comes from poverty and drug strickened neighborhoods, that all races can be guilty of..........rich or poor.

I have a couple of problems with what you proposed.

1. First off, suicide is one of the greatest sins on earth in the eyes of the powers that be so the person who commits suicide most likely wouldn't even come back as a human being which is the highest from of life on earth but be reincarnated into a dog, cat, bird or beast of burden.

2. A black person can come back as a white person but whether or not he/she is civiled depends greatly on the people he/she grows up around and white people like you, it just isn't possible.

That's unfortunate you feel that way. I don't know if you're white but pretending to be black. But not being black will not solve your problems. If you don't love and respect yourself..........then you will not be respected but pitied. Being white does not make you live longer than anyone. It's just a complexion. Just like being black has nothing to do with the culture it's just our complexion.

Our culture glorifies everything you mentioned, but it is up to the Black individual to get out of our screwed up culture.
But if you say culture then we all will be held accountable........for what's glorified and that's not all black people. So i don't know if what you say is fair.
