Black privilege is not having non-black people know what you’re thinking.
People of color (especially ones who have found success and reached higher levels of socio-economic status) have evolved into social chameleons. They play “the role” better than any other minority group. People at the office have no idea that you spend your weekends cursing like a sailor, etc.
is this forreal?
I agree! My co-workers would not recognized outside of work., Even the ones that think they’re “down” would get all the way turned out.
I pulled into to work the other day blasting Project Pat’s Cheeze N Dope tape…
Co-worker: ’ Hmm sounds like you’re having a good time, I’ve never heard that on the radio.”
me: *chuckling* and you probably never will.
Co-worker: Why’s that?
Me: *chuckling harder* Lets just say the content can be a bit “inappropriate”.
co-worker - Ohhh like some of Little Wayne’s songs?
Me: Uhh sure.
