According to some people, if you


are educated
speak proper english
are polite and well-mannered
don't believe that intimidation has to be a part of your demeanor.
etc.

then you're 'acting white'*

But if that is acting white, what is wrong with it?

Smh @ these people reserving all the good things for white people.


* Now I don't believe it is possible to act white, I'm just using the phrase 'acting white' the way some people use it.

    My grandma said that back in her day acting white meant you was wildin out. Because the white boys used to drive through the neighborhoods acting crazy and terrorizing people.

    Funny how times changed.

    I don't recall ever hearing about him, but I just googled him. He's conservative, but I don't see how that can involve 'acting white'.

    So because I'm supposedly encouraging people to use the phrase I'm not educated? That's ridiculous. I don't believe that is what you meant; just admit that you didn't read my post in full. That doesn't make you look as bad.

    just because I don't agree with you doesn't mean I didn't read it

    I meant what I said

    "Acting white" is a phrase that 🤬 ass n!ggers came up with because they were mad that they lacked the ability to speak in complete sentences.

    How can you pretend that you are not black? Blackness is just a set of physical features.

    First of all the fact that most people believe "Acting white" is in some way POSITIVE or something to brag about is a serious problem right there.

    Speaking properly is acting white? REALLY? MOst crackers sound more like Larry the Cable Guy than James Bond. So "sounding white" isn't something one should aspire to. Most whites have never graduated from college so once again...why the 🤬 would you wanna be white? White people are polite and well mannered? You seen the Rodney King beating 🤬 ? That wasnt polite worth a damn.

    THe reality is if you really want to "Act white" you do the following:

    1. Lie on people for no other reason than they're people of color.
    2. 🤬 as many women as possible because you can
    3. 🤬 upwards of 5-25 people in a mass murder spree because 🤬 told you to in a voice in your head
    4. Make excuses for racists and then call whoever calls you out on it a "reverse racist"
    5. Steal as much land and property from natives as you can and use religion as an excuse
    6. Kidnap as many people as possible and lock them in your basement for slave labor.
    7. Have the vocabulary of Sarah Palin's 🤬 son and call it "sourthern twang" but call blacks who use slang "ghetto."

    BASICALLY BE THE MOST DISGUSTING, IGNORANT AND POPPUS 🤬 OF A SUBHUMAN BEING YOU CAN...OK now you're "Acting White."
