    Not the Stereotype....

    I don't fit into the stereotypical mold of what people think a Black girl should be.  I am fluent in Spanish, love learning and graduated with honors from college and am attending grad school.  I love the looks on people's faces when they expect me to be different from...

    Yes i am and damn proud of it!

    I've always been different from other females, especially black females. And when I say black females, I mean the "ghetto" or "ratchet" type black females. I was always labeled the "house negro" or "white" by those type of females and ignorant black males because I listened to...

    Just an observation. I think it's a little weird

    that in our society we have to have a group that puts an adjective on it. Like there should just be two groups for "Intelligent" and "Black Girl". I totally understand why this groups exists. I was always the girl who "talked white" in school. So I get it, I really do, but it's...

    Not Just a Bump On a Log

    I started learning Spanish when I was 5 or six, if you don't count the alphabet in spanish when I was 4 in preschool. I continued this until I was in sixth grade, then I moved, and most of the schools I went to didn't have language courses. I kept my grades up with a's and b's...

    Keep Your Compliments

    I am always so shocked when someone I think I'm getting along with says something like "Why are you so white-washed?" I've heard that, or a variation of that statement so many times now that it really shouldn't surprise me anymore. A co-woker once said that I was so well-spoken...

    I Am So Glad To Have Found This Group

    Everyone is soooo surprised how smart I am. Or how I speak "white", just because I speak proper English? It's so hard to have to prove people wrong everyday. Women alone get a bad rap for intelligence, not even mentioning being black. I am proud to say that I am not a...

    It Should Not Have To Be Stated But It Still Needs To Be...how Interesting!

    I would not be so bold as to say, "yah, I am ultra intelligent" however those that do meet me in my life are VERY "surprised" that I am how I am, I speak the way I speak, I carry myself the way I carry myself, I hold the opinions/views that I do. Maybe many assume most if not...
