I'm proud 2 be black and I'm always awre of the fact, it's nothing to be ashamed of, but ohther blacks i see don't ever seem to feel it the way i do, whenever there is an incident with the police and a brother/sister gets arretsed you always hear the term "It's because I'm black". why is it that ia negative situation the issue of being black comes up. but in other positive situations you never realy hear a thing about being black,?? Whenever there is a job interview>"Oh, I didn't get the job because I'm black" "I got pulled over beacuse I'm Black" When will i hear the words??, "i got the job, beacuse i stayed optimistic, and i had my stong black pride", We shouldn't hide behind negativity, by using the fact that we are black . being black is a wondeful thing and i love it, and i ain't gonna allow myself to be lowerd by white folks just beacuse of my skin color.
