    Hey there,

    As a white guy, if I walk on by you and smile, do you take that as a smile of me being nice and smiling, or do you take it as if I am trying to start something, or do you take it condescendingly? I have had many mixed colored friends in the past, but after I moved out of my 1.3 million population city in cali, I feel as though it is harder to even talk to some black peeps around my age because I feel as though they think I am trying to front in some way, like I feel as if they think I am trying to be a dick when I am not. I recently moved to a new state, and every time I am walking around in public now I feel as if I have to act a certain way so that nobody thinks I am being hostile. I don't want to have to do that, its pathetic. I just wanna walk around and be able to make buddies with whomever, without feeling like they think I am something that I am not.

    :10500: ...This question insults my intelligence ...You're asking us to explain how you should smile at someone whose black? Either way you'd appear disingenuous smiling/acting any other way than how you are.

    Is there something confusing about being told to just be yourself??? Some people will like you, some will not. So WHAT? You can't be all things to all people. JUST BE YOURSELF. The worse thing you (or anyone for that matter) is try to change your behavior to be acceptable based upon the race of people you come in contact with.

    Everyone in this nation regadless of race or wealth is a victim of the history of their people in this nation.

    Don't feel bad , immigrants from Germany went through the same thing in the 50s when they moved to Jewish neighborhoods
