Why are non-black people scared of black people?
Even though they said they don't do it with me it still hurt, it's like saying "we don't think you are ugly but everyone else does". It makes me think, is this the affect I have on people? I live in a mainly white neighborhood and I think "am I scaring the little old white lady across the street just by walking down the street?"
One of them did say that they hate it, and they wish they didn't do it, but it's just "natural reaction".
I just don't know how to feel about their comments.
Listen, you DON'T have to be scared of us. Now, if you are in an all black neighborhood I will admit, DON'T go walking around at night, BUT, you shouldn't just be scared of us for no reason. We are human beings with souls just like everyone else. And what a lot of people don't realize is that yes, many of us act what you would call "ghetto" but that doesn't make us criminals. Hell, even me, I can get kind of hood too but I've never committed a crime in my life (besides rolling someones house, but that's not that bad).
