Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

You’re acting white

leave a comment »

I know that stereotypes play a role in how America views people of different races, but it always bothered me when people made the comment “you’re acting white” because I spoke with proper diction and didn’t use slang. I understand that Black people use slang, just as people of any other race do, but speaking properly shouldn’t only be associated with one race. There are educated people of all races, and I feel that the media should try to portray that so that people can stop only associating white people with speaking proper English.
