I'm sooo tired of white people thinking they can relate to what it's like growing up black in America. Regardless of how many black friends you have or how "hood" you think you are, you are still not black! and there is a HUGE difference between being "hood" and being black. being hood or rachet does not make you black! that's just the way T.V. makes it seem. I am NOT hood! I am however black in america. I know what its like to be followed around a store or treated badly by a cop, you dnt!
