There are a lot of old jokes about people worrying what others think of the way they are dressed when in fact hardly anyone is concerned with what others look like - they are all actually concentrating on their own appearance.
Advice to blacks -
Most whites today don’t care what color you are - race is way down on their list of what is important. Blacks are more race conscious than whites.
Serious people, white or black, concentrate on their own studies and getting the most they can from their own college years.
Just forget about race, concentrate on your studies and advancing your own life and you won’t end up a whining racist crybaby or a racist witch who blames all of their failures on whites - like Barack and Michelle Obama.
This irony continually surprises me. Some of the most successful blacks are the biggest whiners. Rather than proclaim, "I did it, so can you, and here's how", they whine about how black people never get a fair shake and are profiled and discriminated against at every turn. They're walking dichotomies.
Isn't that the truth. When a friend of mine said she'd be afraid to visit my hometown (small farming community in OH) because they'd lynch her...I just looked at her and said “you aren't that special.”
She was confused...I had to clarify, people would look at you twice because you are a stranger and want to know who you are and who you are with (it's called small town living), but if you think they'd give up their lives, their families, or their livelihoods because of the color of your skin...well you just aren't that special.
