I can't tell you what it's like to be black. Ask a black guy.

But I could tell you about having to pretend to be straight growing up because when someone found out otherwise I had to get stitches from where they stomped on my head.

No worries, though, I got a good job so who cares what people have to go through?


Thats sad and I don't know the specifics of the situation. But I saw kids get stomped on because they were too fat, too skinny, not cool, ugly, or just because someone else didn't like the way they dressed. I remember a kid in 6th grade who got picked on mercilessly because he ate to fast. He would down a hot dog in four bites, and the kids around started picking on him about it. Eventually, he tried to punch one of them, and got the crap beat out of him before the teachers got there. Kids, teenagers, and even twenty somethings can be mean, and most of the time, they don't really need a reason.

If you are born black you are much more likely to be born:

Poor
To a broken home
In a higher crime neighborhood

And that's before the latent racism kicks in.

I have found if you keep your feet planted dancing is much easier.

Thats why I said I would rather be born into a affluent family. No doubt the odds are better with a white family (or an asian family).
