Just because i'm black doesn't mean i have to act ignorant and stupid, but so many people see it that way and they are never willing to look outside of the box. They think stupidity is the true way to identifying a black person. If you see a person acting all wild than you know that they have black in them, and thats not neccessarily true. When are people going to wake up and know that we can go out in the world and be just as successful and still know who we are. It's not because were trying to be white. It's because we want to gain success and opportunity that we were so long deprived of . Our success doesn't always have to be credited towards the whites and we shouldn't think of it that way either. Neither should we think of it as getting what the whites have tooken from us. To think of it that way is to say that i never really healed from past wounds of slaverly. Yet think of it as a chance that god gave us to show that we can truly be a great gender. The bases of our culture does not have to consist of Illiteracy, but just as well of intelligents and Brilliant minds. Such as Langston Hughes and Jesse White.
