I’ve spent the first two years of my college life alone in my dorm and I’m sick of it.
My only two friends suck and I don’t want much to do with them anymore. I’m really close to four of my cousins but they live in a different state so I rarely see them.
My family really thinks the best way for me to make friends and build a social life outside of my cousins is to join a sorority. I agree with them because I don't have a social life otherwise.
The problem is there is Pan-hellenic (predominalty black) and Panhellenic (predominantly white) at my school. I’m black but I don’t really fit in with other black people, aside from my family. On the other hand, I don’t think I’d fit in a predominantly white sorority because I’m black. I'm somehwhat skeptical that there will be racism.
I only have 1 week to make a decision, so I've come to GAG looking for advice.
Here's a little bit about me: I like anime/manga, but you'd never guess it judging by my apperance. I love Rock, R&B. Opera and Country music. I love action, drama or thriller movies. I like to draw and paint anime characters. My favorite TV shows are The Amazing World of Gumball, Awkward, and Empire. I love Mexican Food and I'm attracted to pretty much any race. My favorite actors are Tia/Tamera Mowry, Paul Walker, Zoe Saldana, Maryl Streep and Zhang Ziyi.

Okay, well you definitely fit in with the blacks because as you said you are an African-American young lady.
But really you don't seem to fit in with the typical culture.
I guess that's what you mean?
You have to understand that being black is an experience.
What we go through in life, all makes us share the same common ground and relation.
Being black is more than the music you listen to, how you dance, speak etc.

I think you should just be yourself.
Racism is something you will have to face.
