“You much more refined than other Black girls.”
My coworker to me. 21 years old, in Florida. Made me angry, speechless. (via microaggressions)
I’ve had many variations of this said to me throughout my life and it makes me mad as hell. I generally try to press them to articulate exactly what they mean by not like most black girls or not like other black people. What do you really want to say? Then they get embarrassed and shit. Fuck off with that.
I get this one a lot, or my favorite “You must not be American” because we’re never anything more than a stereotype.
