I'm saying when you see dirt bag ivy leaguers... You don't see another ivy leaguers and assume theyre dirt bags... (Not you but society)
In society... They see one dirt bag black person...
They see another black person and assume he's a dirt bag too.
You where saying that the maroons are the only ones that live up to the stereotypes. Is what I took from your statement. Which isn't true. They aren't a bunch of racist, hooch drinking, cousin F'n retards, etc. I've know some very cool, genuinely kind, and very smart necks that know a lot about a lot.
But to address what you've said here.^^
It's not they see a black person per say.
It's more of they see a black person dressed a certain way or driving a certain kind of car. Don't get me wrong you have those out there that see the color of the skin and base their opinion of you off just that.
But then you've got those that want to try and look pass your skin color, but they want you dressed a certain way, talking certain way, and walking a certain way.
As an American society where all guilty of wanting a certain type of visual in order to trust. Like goth kids. You see the way they dress and you automatically get this negative perception in your head about them. Yet they haven't spoken two words to you. But if you saw them in a nice short sleeve button down, with some khakis, and a backpack you think well rounded individual.
Where a society hell bent on the outer appearance.
