I honestly don't mean to make all my questions racially charged or anything, but I'm genuinely curious.
What do you think of when you think of black people? What images come to mind? What assumptions, if any, do you make (regarding intellect, interests, clothing style, family, class, income, thought processes, desires,abilities, etc.)
I'm really curious. Please don't be afraid to be honest. I don't care how stereotypical or racist anything sounds--it's nothing I haven't heard before. Check your political correctness at the door.
Often, when I'm out and about, or at school, I wonder what people think when they see me--if they take my race into account when we interact, or if they even care. I guess I'm having a sort of racial identity crisis (moving past the black/asian label and going for multiracial...or transcending race altogether) and I'm just wondering what people think.
Be honest. Be brutal, even. I don't even care if the n-word comes up--i've heard it all before, even "if you white, you alright; If you black, get back!"
