Why do they called them black when there skin is brown and same thing goes for white ones as well. No person skin on earth is either white or black. Skin color goes from very light brown to very dark brown.

I'm a polar bear with a structure of a koala bear. But it's not like anyone can tell I'm really Pikachu at heart.

Not sure when people say that to me if I should be happy or depressed lol


Well unless you have extremely pale skin (for example if you're an albino) or particularly European facial features I think it's some sort of insult.
Obviously if they're not referring to your physical characteristics they must be talking about your behaviour which would mean that they are stereotyping both the white and black "race" (whatever those are). White people do this, black people do that. The truth is that people's behaviour has more to do with their social class than their skin tone or bone structure.

That kind of comment really can't please anyone and if you don't know how to feel about it, then it's certainly not good. I don't see what's to be happy about with this comment. If you're black and you're not a criminal, you're not ignorant and you for example enjoy literature and the arts, that doesn't make you white, it makes you a black person that likes that sort of thing.

Can I ask if you've ever questioned these people on what their meaning is? Honestly it sounds like something an imbecile would say. I bet the type of people who say that to you, are the ones who would go to a predominantly non white country and spend most of their time on a beach never bothering to visit any cultural areas so that they never have to be disillusioned about non white people's interests in things other than petty crime, weave, sex, golden teeth and drugs.


It has nothing to do with my physical features. It's wholeheartedly due to my behavior. I'm called that because I don't act like the stereotypical black person. Like when I walked up to one kid that my friend wanted to introduce me to, I shook his hand and said "nice to meet you sir." His reply to my friend was "wow you are right he is the whitest black guy I've ever seen." I kinda laugh it off because I know there always just joking when they say that stuff.

My friends did tell me the reason for that though is because I don't do things they see from the stereotypical black person like sagging pants, saying the N word constantly, doing the slap chest bump when greeting people, or pronouncing words in my sentences wrong on purpose. So yeah theirs reasons but I know it's all a big joke so I never minded 1%. Btw we're all teenagers so you can't take what we say to each other seriously lol.

I'm human, that's the only "race" on this planet. Heritage-wise I'm Irish and Scottish and a tiny insignificant amount of American Indian.
