I think you misunderstood the last asker. While I don't agree with this "if you don't do X you are a coon" it is true that black people (and any other minorities) will act differently in front of white people. I am black myself and this is part of living in the West. I'm sure Western people do the same when they are in foreign nations and interacting with natives.
someone just told me THE BLACK PEOPLE I KNOW HAVE A *BLACK IDENTITY* WHICH DOES NOT EXIST BECAUSE THEY COME FROM A BUNCH OF DIFFERENT NATIONS WITH DIFFERENT IDENTITIES AND THEY SOMEHOW HIDE IT FROM US BECAUSE WE’RE WHITE. YOU FUCKING ASSHOLES THEY CAN BARELY SPEAK THE LANGUAGE AND HALF OF THE TIME WE DON’T EVEN HAVE A COMMON LANGUAGE IN BETWEEN US BECAUSE SOME OF THEM SPEAK FRENCH AND MY FRENCH IS PURE COMPLETE SHIT, HOW DO YOU POSE IF YOU DON’T SPEAK THE LANGUAGE? do y’all even speak more than one language?
in order to act or pose you have to communicate and if you have to put effort in communicating because I don’t understand you and you don’t understand me you can’t act, good lord. I don’t act differently in front of anyone when I’m in another country except if it means respecting their customs or generally being polite and respecting social norms and guess what a bunch of those ppl don’t even know Italian social norms. also good lord can you please stop saying *black people* as if ALL BLACK PEOPLE IN THE WORLD ARE THE SAME. MOST OF THE *BLACK PEOPLE I KNOW* WHO COME FROM NEIGHBOR COUNTRIES HAVE COUNTRIES SO WILDLY DIFFERENT YOU COULDN’T EVEN BEGIN TO GUESS.
guys. please. just fuck off with this rhetoric and learn your own language because *posing* doesn’t mean what you think it means. also our problem isn’t that they’re black and we’re white, it’s that WE’RE ITALIANS AND THEY’RE NOT. GUESS WHAT, I HAVE WHITE AFRICANS FROM MOROCCO IN AT LEAST TWO OF MY CLASSES AND THEY ACT EXACTLY LIKE THEIR CONNATIONALS except one who’s like the only right winger immigrant in existence and everyone else thinks he’s a complete idiot. like. god please shut up and stop applying US categories on people who aren’t from the US I honestly can’t anymore. I’m not the right person to throw this rhetoric at. good grief.
