Its always good when people are willing to talk amongs each other about other cultures and learn from each othe. Being raised in brooklyn and now living in a prodmenantly white city, u truly begin to understand how people if not around a culture, wouldn't understand nore know how to relate to a person from another culture. Racism is alive and well, but its some what toned down do to barriers such as pay scale, where u may live and where u go for entertainment. I'm not affraid of racism so I go places where I may be the only black guy there, and people act different. I give credit to the people who are willing to just come right up to me and talk, but service to me isn't the same, I've been fully ignored skipped and out right called a nigga. Its a real experience I wish on no one. I won't say these things hold me back infact they make me wanna work smarter. But here's the twist when u do achieve something, like a nice car, clothing, and such your looked at like “how did get that”. So naturaly it leads me to believe its not a black mans financial or social status that will assist in changing the perception of a nation, but it sure does help younger black people to say "I can be a success to" and not allow other people dictate how they should live.

How old are you and where did you grow up? If you don't mind me asking.
