I wonder if League players get pissed when they go to the grocery store and don’t like the sales that they have.
I would like to put it out there that I love beat boxing. I’m pretty damn saucy at it too. The great thing is that I have awesome friends, and almost all of them think it’s cool and are supportive of it as a habit/hobby.
But I have this one friend. She once told me that I couldn’t be a beat boxer because I’m just a white kid (what?) and I’ll never be cool enough at it.
Well listen here one friend that I won’t name. I’ve spent the last like 4 years of my life passively working on being an excellent beat boxer, to the point that I now do it some times without even noticing.
All just to indirectly prove to you that forget you and your racial stereotyping and your crushing your friend’s dreams. I can be whatever the heck I want to be and I’ll be a damn excellent beat boxer if I want to.
I realized tonight that that was such an inappropriate thing for anyone to say to anyone. You shouldn’t tell a white girl she can’t sing soul, you shouldn’t tell a black kid he can’t love star wars and rubik’s cubes, and you damn well shouldn’t tell a skinny white kid with self esteem issues that he can’t beat box because he’s not black, even though he has the rhythm, and the background in music, and the talent, and he can’t sing a pitch worth a damn but would effing love to be in a freakin’ a Capella group.
No hard feelings, but please think about the effects of your little condemnations before you carelessly throw them into the minds of your peers.
Honestly, I should thank you. But I’m not going to reward you like that.
More like, make everything 10000000 times more confusing and difficult than they need to be.
