    I am not african-american and will never know the struggle of being african-american. With racism and people not giving you a chance without getting to knowyou do you wake up sometimes with a chip on your shoulder or do you just brush it off and dont let **$% get to you ?

    Going through high school, playing sports and being academically competitive, you GOT to have a chip on your shoulder.
    Being in college, you just brush it off now.

    Couldn't have said it better myself. You have to have a thick skin in whatever you get into...

    I don't let it get to me, however I live in California and I'm bi-racial so I guess it's different from a dude living in the South. I reallydon't think about it unless i'm reminded about it by posts like this.

    Do they call white people from Africa African-American as well? I've always wondered this...

    I just live my life. You're in control of everything you do in your life. One can't really worry about others and their view of you. Ultimately, I just"do me."

    I think we need to stop this "race" stuff, we're all human beings so it should not matter. I guess our physical differences come from ourancestors and the different ways they had to adapt to the environment. [​IMG]

    I brush it off and keep it pushing..but a few weeks ago it got 2 me real bad

    I was @ work and 2 (old & white) customers at different times. Where in the same aisle along with another worker (white) and I asked the customer if theyneeded any help..and they both kinda looked at me funny and walked up to the other worker and asked him for work.

    That messed my whole day up and it ate me up..but I got over it the next day
