"I absolutely reject the premise there is anything wrong with Black people “talking white”. It is as if to vast swathes of the privileged white left and impoverished Black community diction, education and a mastery of thought is somehow “white”… comrade, how wrong you are to say that after decades in academia I’m acting white. I’m being black. I’m being black everyday a cop pulls my car over for a “routine stop”, I’m being black each time I look in the mirror, and I’m damn well being black when I school young fools out of the myth our race is too ill-evolved to be both black and accomplished."

Elaine Brown, Secretary of the Black Panther Party, professor of sociology.  (via ifury)

Exactly. There is no such thing as “acting white.” Blackness is its own fucking entity that is rich and multifaceted.
