I would really like to point out out that not being ‘ghetto’ does not automatically make me white washed, not getting a weave doesn’t make me white washed. I’ve been called that so many times. Why? Because I don’t enjoy every single type of foods from trini or that I don’t enjoy other foods from totally different cultures? Because I enjoy north American and European music, Because I don’t say y’all in every other sentence or ‘swag’ or ‘nigger’ etc. I’m not white washed and personally that is an insult to me. And it surprises me also that all the people calling me whitewashed are NOT part of my culture at all. All my actual black friends have never said anything like that to me. You would not like being called white washed when you love and respect your culture so much, so why do it to others?
