i just remembered that someone i looked up to as a kid once told me that black people have better rhythm because they think in shorter increments like 16th notes when white people think in longer relative increments like 8th notes.

right, recognizing differences is not so much a problem.... just the ignorant assumptions of "inherent" differences that cause a disparity.

have you ever heard that as much as we are all the same, we are all different? maybe it was the other way around but i like it more this way because it emphasizes my point better. being afraid of putting labels on people just seems too disney for me.

i remember what it was like to be a fatty. i didn't like it much how people treated me different. but y'know wut? a little bit of cowboying up, a lot of self esteem booster pills, and 6 months with a group called "escapade to heaven" made me see the light.

not saying that black people should try to fix themselves. that analogy doesn't work with skin color BUT no one should feel separate just because someone else thinks racist things about them. buck up, chuck! and besides, our mindsets are evolving as a group. there may always be a few chumps out there but srsly, isn't everyone entitled?

what, are you a communist?
