Okay so, obv and oreo is a black person who acts white. Point Blank. (changing previous words since people r taking me o so very seriously) people think all black people are into hip hop, and ghetto. Im not one of those people. What do you think about oreos, and if you are one, whats ur opinon? I have a feeling i'll get lots of "flaming" and sarcasm in this thread, but i really don't care how you Mouth off, if you have something smart to say go fuck your cat of something.

I think this is practically BEGGING for flaming, you should have placed this thread in the Extended Discussion thread.

and i don't think that you should give yourself a negative connotation nickname, nor should you advertise stereotypes.

Not all people think of black people as being "ghetto"
I happen to know quite a few black people who are most definately NOT ghetto nor into hip hop.. (a couple of them really prefer jazz, and like piano bars..)

By saying things like, i'm an oreo, is basically pushing yourself and the rest of your race into a negative stereotype, that it's a BAD thing to be black. But in reality... not everyone fits into the stereotypes, so by catagorizing yourself, your forcing your mind to become the stereotype (or against the stereotype) when instead you should completely ignore it.

You are a unique person, just like I am, just like joe shmoe down the street, and every other person on this planet.

I didn't know Oreos existed except for the biscuits ^^
And I've never seen a black person acting white. How would that work?

All the people I've met so far who were black were, as you described it, basically the black stereotype. Ghetto, into rap and hip hop and so on.

Uh, I thought we were going to be discussing how wonderful oreos are.
uh

Little girl,
I'm pretty sure everyone is tired of race threads.

I have nothing against oreos.
sheesh. This sounds like it belongs on your diary.
haha

Btw, I think oreos are cool..nothing wrong with being mixed..
[im mixed too.]

Be proud of who you are. Never think of yourself as a stereotype. You're Kristin568.

And now to quote the Iron Giant, one of my favourite films ever... 'You are who you choose to be. Now choose.'

I think if you don't want to be discriminated against, you shouldn't call yourself a name such as oreo in the first place. I have black friends who aren't into hiphop, I agree the hiphop-black stereotype is a hard shell to break out of because people will always label you, but you should make the choice to be yourself and not to be labeled, and that starts with not considering yourself to belong to anything, including "oreo."

Oh I see. There's nothing wrong with that though. Seems kind of random to label them as Oreos just because they don't fit into the black stereotype.

And ignore all the stupid comments people like AHTL are making. Remember you're better than them.

Don't try to be "white", try to be YOURSELF! Last time I checked, personality and race aren't the same thing...YOU CAN STILL BE BLACK AND LOVE ANIME AND ROCK MUSIC! You don't have to strive to be "white".
