What The Fuck Does Acting White Mean Anyway?

Why are some black people so ignorant?!? Just because I want to go to school and be educated doesn't mean I'm trying to be white. What do you know, some black people actually DO go to college and WORK!! So fucking what if I'm 22 and I don't have any kids? I'M NOT MARRIED YOU FUCKING LOSER!! Just because you had all 3 of your kids while you were a teenager doesn't mean everyone else has too also. I don't aspire to be 20 years old, unmarried with 3 kids, unemployed, on welfare, BROKE, living in the projects with a loser lazy ass boyfriend. You can't be serious. I'm not a food stamp champ. Why do I have to go to work everyday and struggle with no insurance when there's girls like you who have a bunch of kids so you don't have to work AND get health insurance?!?! It's girls like you who make it hard for girls like me. I wish I could have health insurance. Looks like I'm gonna have to pop a bunch of kids just so I can go to the doctor if I need to. What the fuck are you doing?!? Get up off your ass and get a fucking job. So what if I don't want to stand outside on the goddamn corner all day? What the hell are you doing, counting all the cars that go by? I have more to do to myself than to just stand outside and look stupid. Use that energy to get a fucking job!! Stop saying the N word. People like you make white people think its ok for them to say the N word too. This is why we as a culture can't make positive changes for ourselves. We hold ourselves back. Why are you talking so loud? SHUT UP!!

I"M NOT ACTING WHITE I'M JUST BEING MYSELF!!

***disclaimer: Sorry if this offended anyone. I just needed to get this off my chest. I love all my black brothas and sistas, even the ones that piss me off!***

Girl, I did a whole post on this fuckery....I can't make this shit up........:)

Keli said...

Ha! I could not tell you how many times I have been told that I "act white", back in MS, I was referred to as an oreo because I played tennis and listened to rock music...

but yeah, I eat bagels, that does not make me white!

But what gets me...

There you go talking proper, trying to act white. *rolls eyes*

(vixenchick) said...

reggie: i read that post! loved it! you and jessica rae together is a trip. : )

keli: eating bagels is a white thing to do? guess i'm a white girl too! oh, i played tennis in school too. i feel you on the music thing. i listen to ALL kinds of music, and of course i get 'dang you got so much white music in your ipod'. ugh. wtf. that pisses me off! how is music black or white? you can't SEE somebody's voice. ugh. you got me getting mad all over again, gurl!

CurvyGurl ♥ said...

LOL. My laugh is cosigning because I get sick of trife people too. "Food stamp champ" is hilarious!

Teems said...

LOL @ FOOD STAMP CHAMP! No need to apologize. I feel you. Health care issues and welfare get under my skin....

CANNED extravagance said...

i totally screamed at the comment about counting the CARS.
you're amazing.
you don't know how many TIMES i have heard that i TALK WHITE.
grammatically incorrect and all.
i've gotten used to it & it no longer offends me when ignorant PEOPLE say it cuz...they're IGNORANT.
people in my neighborhood think i'm stuck up CUZ I'M NOT UP THEIR ASSES, ON THE BLOCK, or just sittin' outside doin' nothin. i h8 when ppl try to oppress others with their caveman mentalities and welfare ATTITUDES.
you're right.
GET A JOB AND STOP LETTIN THE SYSTEM TAKE CARE OF YOU.

.::Anonymous::. said...

let the church say AMEN.

I got it in elementary school, I got it in middle school, went to a White high school so there was a slight hiatus, but now that I'm in college, even the Black people sitting in class beside me pull out this fcukery. Really though?!

Someone needs to give me the manual that outlines this whole "Black" and "White" standards because I clearly missed a few chapters.

Hope said...

i understand what you mean completely!!! People tell me that ALL of the time I fell the same way you do , just because I speak and carry myself well makes me white? So when people say that i just say My carrer choice is Broadcasting and in order for me to get a job i have to have the ability to speak well !

Ms. Minnie said...

I feel you, no need to apologize this is your blog...let it out!

Bombchell said...

[round of applause]

even worse when they say "you tryna be white" lol wtf.

then again its bad if non black people say u acting black, when u do something. lol

i just want to be my own individual

A.M. said...

gurl please, i'm 21 and have been dealing with that problem since I was 10. Kids are always like, "why do u act white?"
why because I speak properly. People laugh at me because I say pardon me.
In other words black men and women in my age group who have these views simply think Black people can't speak well, it's retarded.

Torrance Stephens - All-Mi-T said...

i dont know, i guess it comes from the god hair bad hair deal - good hair is white hair

Truthful Trish said...

i get that ALL THE TIME! MY WHOLE LIFE I HAVE GOTTEN THAT SAME THING! "you act white and you talk white, and your such a white girl"....a mess!

It's frustrating, but sadly Im used to it now..Since I cant please anyone, I just please my self. I continue to talk proper, read books, listen to all types of music ANNND eat mayo!

Dope Fiend said...

Shame on me, i blatantly said nigga in my last post.

nah 4 real tho, i think i've lived my whole life being called white. From the way i dress, to my speech and mannerisms, the fact that i go to an art college, the music i listen to.
A Lot of black people are gonna give you slack for not being like them. you just gotta rise above it babygirl.

xoxo missed ya!

s a s h a said...

Everyone is going to say your trying to be this anad your trying to be that. and It's because they are looking for a way to identify you. everyone is an individual even if they are so far up Kanyezille or a.k. Martin Luis the king Jr. ass.

people used to tell me I talk like a white girl and it used to get me heatd. Just the other day my manager told me that too. I was like.. I dont care how I sound to you or any body else. As long as you get where the FUCK im coming from no need to mention it,

and as for that welfare nonsense. girl bye
most everyone on welfare and acting as if its a support sytem for the rest of thier lifes... people just become comfortable Dont Wann BEND the Mold. lol.

But man let it OUT if its offf ya chest thenn the deed is done..
as for the N-word. eh.. They gonna use it whether we stop or not. Shit... They inventeed it..might as well use it to get on they nerves lol.

Princess Katrina said...

Anjl Marie said...

GIRL DON'T EVEN LISTEN TO THAT CRAP OR LET IT PHASE YOU... DO YOU


PLEASE I TELL PEOPLE ALL THE TIME UP FRONT THAT I HAVE A "WHITE" FLAVOR AND STATE OF MIND CUZ I'M THE OPPOSITE OF GHETTO.

ITS STUPID BUT I OWN IT... THE FACT THAT PEOPLE LIKE US AREN'T GHETTO IS WHAT WILL MAKE US COMODITIES IN THE WORLD BECAUSE WE KNOW HOW TO ACT AROUND ANYBODY AND NOT PUT PEOPLE OFF.


SCREW THE HATERS YOU'RE FABULOUS AND THE ISH AND IF THEY CAN'T HANDLE THAT TELL THEM TO KISS YOUR ASS WHILE YOUR CONTINUING FORWARD WITH YOUR LIFE

Sky Blue said...

Rock the fuck on...I hate the welfare whores, white black or whatever. Some people gotta get a clue.

Kitty said...

LOL @ "even the ones that piss me off" I used to get that "acting white" comment too. How obnoxious and ignorant.

Poetic.Justice said...

you took the words right out of my thoughts.

its funny because african americans claim they dont want to be stereotypes but they constantly do and say stereotypical things.
power to you :)

I Am Who I Am, Deal With It said...

you dont know me, but this is a fantastic post, I actually read the same thing in Madea's Uninhibited Commentaries on Love and Life: Don't make a Black Woman Take Off Her Earrings.

I Am Who I Am, Deal With It said...

oh and I really hate when people state that "youre acting white" just cause i dont have 3 three kids, deadbeat boyfriend and free healthcare, im too good to be black.

Alicia/InstantVintage said...

Girl, breathe!

I totally understand where you are coming from. No worries.

It's a class issue. Just keep doing your thing and don't worry about other people's negativity.

=)

PHANZ!!! said...

Wow! Now that was a RANT! I do hear what you’re saying though, what is a shame though is that striving for a good education and being open minded associated with being white and the anti-thesis of being black. Don't watch it though, just do you...

K. Michel said...

Acting white, eh? That must be weird to hear...

Tamstyles said...

AAAwww shit..I feel you though.. great blog! my first visit and i get hit with the truth!

I wish that phrase would just fade away.
