Race Rules: When you aren’t your stereotype 

 

Hey Golden Eagles thanks for tuning in to episode 8 of Shee Speaks via Golden Eagle Radio. Today I want to address racial roles and what happens when we don’t live up to our stereotypes. Every race is expected to behave a certain way or have certain characteristics. In this episode i’ll be discussing the feeling of “otherness” when we don’t live up to the stereotypes tied to our race. I’m also addressing the ideas of “Acting Black” or “Acting White” and the putting down from people outside and within our communities. We should be able to be ourselves without judgment. I’d love to know your thoughts and hear your stories so feel free to share in the comments below.
