Curious(serious talk!!)

So yea I have basically lived in a mainly black society most of my life and I am white. Right now I am about 5% of the population at the school. Honestly I get really aggrivated about the whole racial thing that goes on. I don't have that much of a problem though since I am not racist and have dated black people and lots of people seem to like me. Although I have had friends with racial problems around here. Some guys just tell me I am black stuck in a white body I'm not sure how to take that lol but whatever.

Im just curious how do things go around your school or society?

See I am one of the few white people that actually sit at other tables than the "white table" I think its good to be accepting of others colors because honestly I don't care what color you are. What do you guys think about different races?


*remember this is a mature conversation. Please nobody get offended by anything anyone says and be mature about how you approach this.*

One of the few people I have kept in touch with since high school is my good friend Leyu who is Ethiopian.
My high school was 90% Asian haha. No matter though, the color of one's skin does not change who they are inside.

yea that's what I always say but I don't know if its because the majority of our school is black or what but it seems like their are more black that say racist remarks than anybody else. The thing that I have noticed most is like when they say "look at that white girl/boy". I don't know if they are trying to make us say something so they can start something or what. Of course like I said I don't have that issue much anymore but other people do.

At my school there is only one black person in the entire Jr/Sr high. But he's an Oreo--Black on the outside and white on the inside. He knows it too. He has a pretty cool fro though. We all love him.
