Lots of us work according to someone else’s plan for us instead of our own. I’m going to take the time to figure out what I want out of this day… Then… I’ll dream bigger

I really hate that chick. The one that has bought into this new age, better, and smarter in-crowd but has no idea what it means. She feels honored to be a part of something but just doesn’t understand what. Adopting every culture except for the one she considers her own. She orders a Grande Vanilla Latte and hopes she ordered the right thing. They call her drink out and she doesn’t recognize the call at first. She asks some random white lady if it the drink is hers before she realizes the coffee attendant is looking directly at her. She grabs her Latte and stumbles around looking for seating with an outlet and finds nothing. This won’t do because Lord knows she charge her shit at home. She tries to stay under the radar so that no one notices that she doesn’t fit; not understanding that they’ve already noticed her. They’ve already noticed her because she has brown skin and big hair. She has broad hips, nose and full lips. She dresses expressively and… above all… she’s trying not to be noticed and thereby bringing more attention to herself. She doesn’t comprehend that the idea of a new culture is bullshit unless she embraces her own strengths and weaknesses. The In-Group is like clothes and clothes don’t make the person. I was that chick today and I hate that chick. So I stopped that shit and sat my ass down.
That black girl stumbling around in the Starbucks culture…
