Luisa Casagrande‘s insight:

 

Friendly reminder that:

 

1) The fact that I don’t listen exclusively to rap or that it isn’t my favorite genre doesn’t make me a “white girl”

 

2) The fact that I speak Standard English does not make me a “white girl”

 

3) The fact that I get decent grades doesn’t make me a “white girl”

4) The fact that I don’t feel comfortable using the N word does not make me a white girl

5) The fact that most of my friends are white does not make me a “white girl”

6) That fact that I’m not outspoken and all ‘fuck the police/teachers/authority in general” does not make me a “white girl”

And if you address me as such, I won’t say anything, but that’s only because I’m fantasizing about violent things I’d like to do to you.

My Mother is white.

My Father is black.

Therefore I am both.

That makes me who I am, not a bunch of negative stereotypes.
