Hey girl I'm a black female who just started getting into skating too. I understand what you mean because I am 18 and my parents are SO against it for no reason, but as for you being concerned about people looking at you funny, just say to yourself "THE HELL WITH THEM!!". Do what YOU want to do and dont let others dictate that. Being different is the best, so why would you want to be the same as everyone else? Thats always been my outlook on life, so just be yourself and if we wunna skate then we'll skate, reguardless of what anyone else may think about us. FUCK THEM!!

skateboarding is a sport about personal expression. if you want to skate, then by all means skate. it doesnt matter what color/religion/gender you are. skating is about enjoying and expressing and learning about yourself. if anyone gives you a hard time then they are the ones with the problem. just ignore them and rise above.

just ask them to give you at least 4 reasons why you shouldnt do what you love. just say it like that. and with the whole black/white thing honey, its sad you feel like that, you should never be ashamed of yurself.... the first time i went to a skatepark i was the only girl, i had never been able to skate in a skpark coz there were none in my area. the guys got used to me and they started actually talking to me letting me borrow dvds- all in good time my firend AND DON'T BE EMBARRASSED OF WHAT PEOPLE THINK OR SAY COZ IN THE END THEIR THE DOUCHEBAGS :D

I'm a 22-year old black skater from Tennesse and I can help but feel symphatic about your issue. I've personally believe that you can skate no matter what color you are. There are many black skaters who feel the same way you do, and I think it because people follow a certain "stereotype," especially here in the south (where u and me are). It just people, mostly black people, can't get that other blacks skateboards because they have to follow a agenda that suits them well...BET anyone? So other blacks with try to hate and possible laugh at people who go "against the grain". theflashtaylor13, please don't pay attention to these people... They just mad because they don't have no individuality.
