Racial Acts

Can you act a color? Growing up I was lead to believe so. My friends would label it quite easy

he’s acting black.

fun fact: i googled "wigger" to get this image

and this guy here…well he’s acting white

fun fact: i googled "preppy black guy" to get this image

that’s how easy it was. But, i never believed it. How can you act a race? It always bothered me.

Just the terminology of acting, like a race is a role, is offensive.

You can perhaps play out or imitate a stereotype…but a race? I don’t think so.

Hi, my name is Nia, I like coffee shops, J. Crew, alternative music, and I wear Ralph Lauren because Kanye said it was ok. No act needed.

Step into the Light.
