The first time I knew I wasn't allowed to talk to white people was when I was 7. My mom took me and my brother to a park. I wanted to go on a swing and a little girl was already on it. So, I stood by the swing and waited and then she saw me and asked if I wanted to swing. I told her that she could keep swinging until she was finished (she is white btw). Her mom overheard and she said, "Brittany let her get a turn you've been on for a while." So, she got off, when I got on I told her that we could share and we tried to squeeze together on the swing, i'm still laughing about it xD My mom walked fast towards us and grabbed me off and said I couldn't talk to her. Brittany's mom asked,"why" and my mom said something but I don't remember. I know it was rude though. When we got back home she said that I couldn't talk to white people because they were part of the KKK. Of course, I didn't know what that was and she told me that it was, "a group of white people who hung black people (especially black little girls) from trees." I believed her and I was shocked because Brittany seemed so nice. Ever since then i've refused to associate with white people. I even got send to detention once for refusing to work with a white girl and I told her that if she touched me I would hang her from a tree. A couple days ago I thought "I don't want to be racist anymore." I was trying to unracify myself... I don't think that made sense but whatever cx Until, I was on the internet and decided to look up racist forums to piss myself off and I thought, "damn since they want to be racist then i'm going to be racist back." Whenever I try to unracify myself, I always think about what my mother used to tell me and I read the stuff online and I hate white people even more. It is my mother's fault, right?

A child can blame it on their parents. An adult needs to accept responsibly for their own life. You can't blame all of your issues on your mother forever. Eventually you will have to own up to the way you choose to interact with others. I know breaking away from how you are raised isn't easy, but we all have similar baggage that we have to learn to deal with as adults.
Do you really think Brittany ever even thought about hanging you from a tree? Heck even her mom asked her to stop so you could have a turn. Do you realize how many white supporters Obama had in the last two elections? Or how many white women idolize Oprah?
There will always be some haters, but they are a vocal minority. Mostly they are cowards that hide behind a computer screen and enjoy saying anything to make other people upset. I hope you grow up to be the kind of woman than can walk away from the hate.2
