Reply to "They Say You're "Acting White"? You Probably Deserve It"

Without having read much of this thread, I will say that I think the whole argument about "acting white" is rather ridiculous. Since we live in a white world, operate within a white culture, eat white food, work in a white economy, pay taxes to a white government, speak a white language, worship a white God, wear white clothes, take white medicine, live in white homes, eat with white utensils, are governed by white laws, etc., etc., etc. - how does this argument have any merit whatsoever? Sure we may put a black spin on things, but so what? We are "spinning" something that - at the core - is white.

With that as context, does this argument make any sense whatsoever? Confused


I know those circumstances are unavoidable and we must make the best with what he have, or even better improve upon them. I just need to address the elitism that is inherent in certain black people that feeds the need to put above other blacks, the elitism that makes them consider them the "other" instead of their brothers.
