people are clearly saying anything to make these bullshyt argument. Black people weren't getting jumped for getting A's in school this is a lie. I was in school from the late 80s up until 2000 when i graduated highschool. Black kids were NOT getting jumped for having good grades. Yall just making up shyt now. I'm pushing back because now you not about paint black in this silly ass fake light.
Sure, outliers exist.
But given any real-world situation, you're not choosing a mentally handicapped person over a highly-educated one to perform a complex task.
You just... aren't.
And there's a good reason for that.
who here actually saw a black person get picked on for getting good grades?
Some of it does. But some of these kids resist their parents attempts at socialization. They take rejection from other groups and become withdrawn and very insular and defensive.Again, this falls at the feet of the parents.. Some parents get too caught up in education that they isolate their kids from socialization with the other kids in the community.. Everything is about balance. There are kids who grew up not listening to rap music because their parents forbade it. Yet they'll send their kids to a predominantly black school where all the kids listen to rap.. So at lunch when the kids who listen to rap are sitting at the table talking about rap, the "nerd" who's parents didn't let their kid listen to it feels isolated.. Kids isolated from the peer group act a certain way as well.
It has always been acceptable in the black community to seek academic excellence. We supposed to act like A Different World and HBCU's didn't exist. We supposed to act like the NBA wasn't doing whole stay in school campaign featuring black men telling black kids to stay in school.Yeah, by the mid 00s, it was finally OK for black kids to pursue academic excellence, without the excess hate.
I'm suggesting that you have no way to tell if your experience is closer to the rule than the exception.And Im saying my experience is closer to the rule than the exception.
Do you have evidence to the contrary?
The norm. Theres more Black people than ever on social media displaying interest comics, anime, S.T.E.M academia etc.
A lot of the Black people that are into that stuff who are clowned are clowned for being awkward or insufferable in general.
I know a lot of yall are oldheads that don't keep up with current trends but its been cool to be a "nikka nerd" for years now.
Black people hating on nerds is a narrative for Black Conservatives to victim blame the Black race as usual.
Eat a dikk. I never had any black person pick on me for being smart. Or accused me of "acting white" for being so. Whatever the fukk that means.
Did I get clowned for wearing old shoes? Yes. Wearing high water pants? Yes. Being skinny as fukk? Yes. I didn't cry in a corner. I fought back with the brain I possessed. I didn't come from a family of cowards. Someone bops you. You bop them back. I think the underlying issues is y'all didn't have a daddy in your homes. Blame that stank puss bytch ya call ya moms.

“If u think I’m lame for playing Magic, I’m gonna become SUPER a$$hole!” type deal. They also weaponize victimhood status and use it ironically to be nasty to others they consider beneath them, even as they cry about people being mean to them.
I wish people would stop acting like every weirdo in a Hawaiian shirt is some sweet kid picked on by the mean ole jock or thug, overlooked by popular pretty/hot girls and guys.
That doesn’t always correspond with reality.And this ain’t merely a “blk” thing.

again, you have shown what the real issue was with you. you are the type to call people dummies and losers, then when they say something back...."it's because i'm smart....not that i was calling them dummies and losers".So erase the history of academically gifted black boys getting ridiculed? So that never happened?
