If I could do things with you all over again i’d do it all differently, not because of regrets, but the question mark behind “what if we changed it up a bit.” Maybe then we’d still be cordial, I wouldn’t mind that.
This a rant and my thoughts might get lost in translation, but if you’ve read a post of mines before you should know this already.
I hate that “being black” can be so overly associated with hard life that some black person can, insecurely, feel the need to deny being fortunate to fit in the “black community.”
I hate that some black people that are fortunate pride themselves as being a new black and the new faces of the black community while in the same breath criticize and belittle the negative within our community that is - without being a ladder to effort in our evolution.
What if I said that I didn’t want to be associated with the black community? Not because any stereo types, positive or negative, but because I dont like communities.
I DONT like communities.
And what if I dont want to be apart of the GLBT community? I dont care what definition of applies to me.
We should be defining our selves, not finding definitions that apply.
And being gay is not the new black.
Any aspect of your sexuality made visibly public that can be called queer is shown by choice. This is a point that can be easily argued against and dismissed by myself, but it highlights the point that no born black person has to face coming out of the closet about the color of their skin. Maybe about their ethnicity, but not the color of their skin.
I hate how people feel like they need to accept or redefine the definition of a stereotype to be accepted or understood by other “communities” or to strengthen their own.
Some people feel like being placed in the same box with someone makes them relate. I feel like its the same relations that bring people together that can strengthen division.
Sometimes communities encourage division and to weak minds feed a sense of “better than.”
There is no “better than” when we all are human and that scientific fact should be enough for us to relate.
Being human should be enough.
