I’m not hating, but White people who try to enlighten Black people about the Black experience are annoying. There is this new crop of liberal white people who are getting so annoying that I want to run to a skinhead punk concert and mingle.
Listen Sarah, that’s great that you sympathize with the black people. I love that you love Martin Luther King, but seriously, don’t bring up every little black experience fact like I don’t know it and you’re trying to teach it to me. That’s really really annoying.
Oh really Sarah? Dark-skinned black people don’t get along with light-skinned black people?
Really? Black kids in the ghetto test lower than rich white kids from the suburbs? Wow.
For real? You were reading "the invisible man" and you want me to read it cause I can learn something? What do you think I can learn? You think I can learn what it’s like to be black?
You don't think my blackness helps at all in that knowledge? You think what you read is a better source? Let me look at the author, oh wait, this guy did a study at Yale. Oh yeah he's a lot better source. I mean just being at Yale is enough for me. I know every black person there.
If black dynamics in America was taught, and you could apply grades, you’d be in the first grade learning how to spell and I’d be curing AIDS.
You see the difference? So please stop telling me about the revolution.
Stop “informing” me about the negative images that media portrays of Black people.
Okay, you’re “enlightened” - instead of thinking that all black people steal because they’re greedy, you “understand” that all black people steal because of the environment they grew up in.
Yeah, sure, go ahead and ignore the millions of Black people doing well. And the majority of Black people that aren’t in prison. Focus on the ones that are below poverty line selling CD's near the subway and use them as a microcosm for the black experience.
No I’m not from the ghetto, never been to prison, so it’s okay to assume I don't know what it means to be black, so please tell me of the historical significance of Jena 6. It’s not annoying at ALL.
Go ahead and get offended FOR me at work when someone says Black instead of African-American. Give me a random quiz with a question like, do you know what Cornel West said?
Be the first to inform me about anything Hip-Hop. What the hell, put on a biggie/Tupac shirt and tell me how groundbreaking hip-hop is but how the industry is destroying it and so you only listen to independent REAL hip hop like…um…Slum Village.
How annoyed would you be if I talked about the white experience? Would that annoy you? "Hey Joe, did you know that white people have to comb their hair?"
"Hey, did you know White people are uncomfortable in their role as oppressor?"
"Hey, did you know that White girls are inherently open to butt sex?"
Now don't I sound stupid?
To lump a group of people together in the positive sense is as bad as grouping them together negatively. Except you’re more annoying. I'm not hating White people who try to enlighten Black people on the Black experience, I’m just saying.
