27 Questions Blacks People have for other Blacks

images (3).jpg

So I saw an amazing video I believe from Buzz Feed that was titled Questions Black People Have For Black People the reason I loved it so much it because these are some of the very questions I have had all my life and have even blogged about many of them. I just do not understand how many black people in the black community can behave, speak, and think this way and then find fault in how black people like myself have a hard time relating to how to ‘act’ black. I act like a human and keep it moving.

Do not stereotype me and place me in your idealistic box and glue me there as if I must stay in whatever picture you have envisioned for me. That is not how my life works and will not be made to work to make/ keep anyone happy.

I just adore this post because it was done tastefully but it said it all. Are there other cultures that deal with such issues? Is so please share. I am quite interested.

    “I just do not understand how many black people in the black community can behave, speak, and think this way and then find fault in how black people like myself have a hard time relating to how to ‘act’ black.

      Honestly, it’s just that I have seen so many black people tear each other down that it’s appalling and I have been a part of it and this happened to be the lighter ‘videos’ of many that has flooded my facebook timeline recently. It was just weighing on my mind. Sorry if it was a bit harsh/ militant but I wanted to know if other cultures dealt with the same issues as well.

        Actually I thought your comment “I act like a human and keep it moving” was great, if more of us did that instead of being worried about stereotypes, colour, sex, sexual preference etc the world would be a better place.

          Thank you. I did not post it to be ANGRY about black people or to say I have had a hard life around blacks but to show that in our community WE as a whole tend to tear one another down and to ask if others did this as much as we do. I am just so confused on why what I “have to be” to have curly hair nice hair or where I’m from because I have proper annunciation and diction. It’s just a bit disheartening. It’s embarrassing and annoying when I am asked, “What are you?” LOL.
