I got The Talk when I was about 13....I think it was mostly overflow from them talking to my brother who was 11 at the time.

The new talk. Many republicans are very angry that Obama was elected. They are armed to the teeth and have CWP. They will start things with you and then hope that you yell,curse, or if they get in your face shove them away so they can then shoot you and claim self defense. This is a needed talk to have with not only black kids but all black men.
I want as many as possible to obtain a CWP so we can defend ourselves and walk the street with dignity. Not hat in handsaying sorry mister so they don't shoot you. Again not white people but white republicans.

Stereotyping "White republicans" doesn't help anything.

I was sad when Obama won, but after hearing his inauguration speech I was filled with hope. How he has let us down. Hope and change quickly turned to politics as usual.

Many poor policies and decisions have put us in a weakened position. I know many who were Obama supporters who are also disgruntled at his actual agenda once elected.

I never had a talk warning about cops and whites.

I had the talk about self responsibility and decency.

Basically they told me if I :
Don't Look Ghetto (Thuggish)
Don't Act Ghetto (or Thuggish)
Don't Speak Ghetto(or Thuggish)
Don't Dress Ghetto(or Thuggish)
Don't Associate Myself with anyone who does so.

I would not have any issues with anyone, and I would be successful.

That advice worked.

Pretty common sense advice that apparently many don't get.

You and your family must live in the perfect part of america. I've never done anything that would be considered ghetto or thuggish but I'd be lying if I said I never encountered racism. Hell, I EARNED a scholarship to college but you know I overheard a parent telling another one that I probably got it due to affirmative action? You know how many times people have told me I don't "sound" like a black person?

No I didn't get the "all white people are out to get you" talk but I got the "some people will make negative assumptions about you because you're black" talk. Sadly, they were right.

Yeah, there are some people that will do exactly that. But not all - in fact, probably not a majority. But it's not just non-blacks who do & say stupid things like that.

Yep and my parents never specifically said it would be white people. They told me that for some people me being black would be a disadvantage and they taught me how to work that in my favor. You'd be amazed at how easy it is to exceed expectations when people set them so low
