if they like being the only one, it's because they don't want to have to face the racism, easier to delude themselves that it doesn't exist

Or feel they have to fight it, call it out, which can feel like an uphill battle

It makes me sad, mad even but I empathize

I'll admit I'm a sellout for #3

I wear the same kinky straight or kinky curly texture and length and even when I wear my natural hair out it's bunned or in an updo that looks quite similar to the kinky straight

Very true. However, it's appalling when they destroy another one of their own to save face.

This guy ran into my office with such enthusiasm to tell me that someone was selling whole watermelons for $5 in the parking lot. I told him no thank you, I don't eat watermelon. He had the nerve to ask me why. I said because I DON'T LIKE IT & closed my door. Dead I don't like/eat any type of melon.



LOL

Ugh! This brings back memories of my first office job right after high school. The pay was good but those white people were the worst. They brought their big funky stankin dogs to work everyday. I couldn't stand it. 

One white boney crypt keeper lady there would always ask me how I got my braids in my hair and did I remove them every night. Why the hell do you care?Confused

The office whore who slept with the president of the company would stay trying me. And I would stay hurting her feelings. She tried to get me in front of the president and the hr manager to confront me. Talking about "I get the feeling that you don't like me" I was like "I don't". The look on her face was priceless. 

They had the nerve to ask me to walk their dogs one time. I gave them the stankiest of stank eyes without saying one word. They never asked again.

I left that place after 6 months.LOLLOL

There is always the one suspected office whore that sees you as a threat. Thinking you will succumb to their low standard bc they are lazy and incompetent and looking for the easy way out of everything. Both were over 40....hatersssss....tacky....losers

African/black americans? Black people from other cultures usually don't.

Kind of ot: My mother hit me with a Flotus side eye the only time I asked to when I was like 9. I went to my cousin's house and his neighbor was telling me about it. Never cared to ask about it again after that LOLLOLLOL But it's nothing I'd've remained interested in anyway.
