I Got a Question


Note to reader: THIS POST MAKES A FEW BROAD GENERALIZATIONS ABOUT RACE.  NOTHING HURTFUL THOUGH. SO IF YOU HAVE BEEN OFFENDED BY SOMETHING THAT I HAVE WRITTEN BEFORE....I AM PRETTY SURE YOU WILL GET OFFENDED AGAIN. 


I do not know if I have every told you folks this.  I go to The Pennsylvania State University, or just Penn State.  Home of the Nittany Lions.

"What the hell is a Nittany Lion?  Sounds like some punk ass lion that kicked out of the pride and started his own group!!!"

Apparently it is a species of mountain lion that was unique to this area.  They were found on Mt. Nittany, hence the name Nittany Lion.

"Still sounds like a rejected mountain lion.  And you are a punk for going to a school with an extinct mascot."

Why is it that you never have anything positive to say?

"Well I don't know about other days, but today I'm just hyper.  I had two of those 5 hour energy shots and 4 Red Bulls.  I'm ready!!!!"

For what?

"Whatever life throws at me."

Your heart is going to explode.

The point in mentioning the school that I attend is not to get Douglass all hyped up about the mascot.  Here is what I am getting at:

When you go to a majority school, you see people of EVERY race/ethnicity.  You name it, it's here.  Today I was walking to the bank and I looked at this Asian chick and I thought, "Wow, her hair looks really good."  So that got me thinking...I have never seen an Asian, man or woman, with bad hair.  So I have come to the conclusion that all Asian people have nice hair.  Maybe they put more time into their hair, or maybe nature has blessed them with that bounce most people would kill for.  Whatever the reason, I am making that statement.

So that got me thinking about the good qualities in all races, because all races/ethnicities have good and bad qualities.  I am not just talking about physical traits, it can be personality traits, culture, ANYTHING.  For example, a good quality about white people is the privilege and opportunity that comes with being white.  

So my question to you is...

What qualities from other races/ethnicities would you like to have for yourself? 

I understand that most of you will probably say "I am happy just the way I am."  I am pretty sure that MOST people are happy the way they are.  This is just a thought exercise that is supposed to be fun, and maybe a bit funny.  So go crazy, have fun with it.  I will not judge you for anything you may come up with.  This is one of those rare times that...

Stereotypes are more than welcomed!!!

i tan, so i would say i would like to be any race with brown skin. LOL

and i love spanish women's thick strait or curly hair.

*shruggs*

and i agree with A.M. not all white folks have privilege.

also, i think (THINK) that some races have different hair because of their diet. different cultures eat different food, have a different environment and so on. think about it.

My best friend is Chinese so I know 1st hand they have issues with their hair too.

I love being black, but...

If I were white, I'd wanna be a redhead...just to be different.

Or Japanese cuz they make any hairstyle or outfit look fly.

I wanna be white so I can have GREAT CREDIT..(mine is aight, but them student loans made a decent sized dent)
Or better yet, so i can walk into any store/dealership/bank and not have to justify my browsing.

On a serious note, I think I'd wanna be something hispanic cause I like their hair. Oh and arab cause they all got that arab oil money.
That is all
