"When you’re black at a PWI you quickly learn just how ignorant some people are. To answer some of their frequently asked questions:
1.NO, I don’t tan. It’s called melanin.
2. YES, my hair naturally curls into an Afro and no you cannot touch it
3. Although I watch BET not all black people do so don’t assume
4. Yes I speak properly and no you cannot use AAVE to mock me
5.NO, you’re not allowed to use nigga in my presence nor in my absence
6. And finally, I attend this University based off of my exceptionally high GPA, extracurricular activities, and my years of hard work dedicated to my studies. Do not for any reason believe I got here based off of my ethnicity. Although you may have gotten this far due to your privilege, I on the other hand have worked for everything I have."

"Start ignoring people who threaten your joy.
Literally, ignore them.
Say nothing.
Don’t invite any parts of them into your space."
