One cannot “act a race”. That’s basically the racial equivalent of “choosing” to be gay. I don’t “speak white” I speak with the same tone and dialect of which the people I grew up around speak with. I act a certain way and speak a certain way due to the environment I grew up around. If you traveled to Great Britain, met a black person, and they weren’t speaking with an American Ebonics accent but an English accent you wouldn’t assume they were acting white; why do it to POC in the USA? I’m sick of it. I don’t speak Ebonics? I’m acting white. I’m intelligent? I’m acting white. I choose to be a kind person instead of regularly instigating fights? I’m acting white. No. Personality, dialect, it’s all relative. It has to do with your environment and who your surrounded by, not what race/ethnicity you were born into. Dear White People, there are many a white trash person in this country believe you me. And I’m not apologizing for speaking eloquently enough, being decent enough, and being intelligent enough for you to feel threatened of losing your self-proclaimed superiority over me. And I’m not meaning to generalize all white people, because I’m not ignorant and close minded enough to insinuate that an entire group of people are all the same, but I’m calling out the white people that feel a need to associate good character and intelligence with the white race and everything negative and derogatory with the black race. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, my race DOES NOT define who I am. I define who I am. I am proud of my intelligence and of my accomplishments and how much I’ve achieved and if you have to proclaim that my success was brought on due to me “acting white” then you are surely mistaken and the fact that you have to say that to make you feel better about yourself and your race is just plain pathetic.
