Stereotypes are more than what we might want them to be, so stop telling me I'm just a typical Asian, a typical African-American, a typical ghetto black gurl, in a stereotypical world.


Being black is where it's at, right? But if black is where it's at, then what we go through is wack. Being black doesn't mean that we always are cooking chicken, that we eat McDonalds, that the men are deadbeats, that the woman always are single moms, that we always are fighting, that we are always the criminals, that we are the only ones who try to stand up for what's right because #blacklivesmatter. But what about the victims of school shootings, the victims of homicide,  the victims of suicide, the victims of depression, the victims of rape and molestation, the victims of any type of abuse, the victims of Trump's America.

This stereotypical world, with me a stereotypical black girl, having to witness the stereotypical things people believe and live.

This stereotypical country,  with a LIVING, WALKING, STEREOTYPICAL WHITE—oops, sorry caucasian man as our president.


This stereotypical state of farms and corn, with the stereotypical stereotypes of the people being born here.

This stereotypical poem about these stereotypical stereotypes of what it’s like to live in this crazy world, brings tears to my eyes because of how we live our lives as walking stereotypes.
