I liked the entire speech he gave at Morehouse
/shrugs/

But I never thought about the fact that he [POTUS] is not technically African-American.

The exceptional negro is one of the racism tactics I hate the most

It's so deceptive and insidious and invidious ... on its face and in the face of such seemingly insurmountable odds, it's too easy to fall for but we can't afford to be fooled by the smoke and mirrors

My professor, who is black, said that she had friends who would go to Europe and literally come back with their self esteem shooting through the roof because of how they were perceived over there.

Racism.

My mercy.

It's hold is so strong that a black president can't help his own people without racism fighting tooth and nail to keep their unfair advantage

I wish he wouldn't fall right in line with racism and admonish blacks for not using the bootstraps we never had

On a certain level I understand the President Obama is a first step and we have collective work to do to set the stage for a president that must address our needs but it's still infuriating

shid. my girl whom I love dearly can't wait to leave here and go back to school. she said living over there she forgot what it was to be treated differently because you're black. She said when she came back here she was gettin' shaded and followed in stores n'sh*t when she didn't get that "over there". She's never returning to the states to live if she can help it she said.

Thanks for posting Afro.

If one's value/worth can change simply by crossing a border, what does that tell you? 

Unfortunately, the common denominator is still that, on the whole, white people are calling the shots.
People of color are being judged and weighed, valued or devalued, and rewarded or punished, based on white perception.

Proof that no matter what you do, or what you achieve, there will still be a yt person ready, willing and able to look down on you.

Must I keep wishing heart attacks to them all? Yes...yes...I guess so.

Still waiting on Obama to preach and wag his finger at white youth or talk about all of the things that they do wrong.
