Being a Problem

“How does it feel to be a problem?”

This is a question asked in W.E.B. Dubois’ treatise The Souls of Black Folk. The question doesn’t ask how does it feel to have problems or have the kinds of problems that some people can’t or won’t understand. The question directly asks how does it feel like to actually be a problem. This question is also the title of a book by Moustafa Bayoumi who gives an indepth look as to what it’s like to live in a time where being a young Arab or Muslim American is often judged as being the enemy. A threat. A terrorist.

Being a member of the “other”, especially if you’re black, you are not granted the privilege of being individuals, especially if a crime occurs. When a black person is so much as suspected of any crime, the whole race is suspect. If a black person was the suspect and there are white victims, the whole race is looked upon with disdain and mistrust, seen as the potential enemy of white folks who will seek another innocent white person to get back at them for slavery. It seems like it’s always slavery that’s the underlying reason white people believe is the reason for any black-on-white crime. But I digress.

I remember a few years ago back in 2008. A UNC Student named Eve Carson who had a potentially bright future ahead of her was robbed and murdered by two young black males. It was a major news story. A white woman was killed by not one, but two black men. I also remembered two words in one article I read. Racial tension. I hear and see those words often whenever there’s a story about an interracial crime. Usually when it’s black-on-white, that’s when a feeling of dread hits me, because I fear of repercussions for that area against the black community. When a black person commits a crime against white people, black people, not just those responsible, must be held accountable.

Most people still can’t, or won’t, grasp the racism that reeks whenever black people are seen as a collective problem that must always pay whenever a few of their own fuck up. A lot of people avoid being called the r-word by excusing it with statistics, so-called “facts” that they’ve found most likely at a racist conservative website that exaggerates numbers to prove their point.

On the other hand, white people are granted the privilege of individuality no matter how often or how heinous a crime is. Whether it’s a school shooting, a bombing, serial rape or even mass shootings, white people are given the third degree and had their culture questioned, nor are they given stern lectures to “do better” by those who unofficially appoint themselves as guidance counselors for the whole race.

It has been a few days since the Biker shootout in Waco Texas that claimed nine lives, injured over a dozen more and led to the arrest of over a hundred bikers. The media treated the bloodbath with kid gloves, turning it into a singular incident where it was an isolated tragedy and not part of a string of white-on-white crime where more than a few lives are usually taken.

However, the same media treated the protests in Baltimore and Ferguson as if it was a warzone. Pretests themselves became riots. Protestors became looters. Animals. Thugs. The peaceful anger and uprising vanished within the news media’s sensationalism and racism and became an outbreak of black pathology unfolding before America’s eyes.

No matter what, black people are constantly seen as the problem in America. It’s safe to say that no matter what we do, our faults end up overshadowing our accomplishments as well as overall humanity and individuality though the eyes of the white racist mindframe that continuously sees itself as innocent and normal while it sees blackness as criminal, pathologic and something to be feared and taken care of mostly by imprisonment or brute force.

      1. Stupid reply. I just asked a simple question. Was it too tough to answer for you, Pam. BrothaWolf answered it. What was your problem?

      2. You asked a simple question. I gave you a simple answer. And I don’t have a problem, but you seem to have one. So, the question is what’s your problem?

  1. This is all a bunch of paranoid raving. Where do you get these ideas? There are no “repercussions against the black community” whenever there is a black-on-white crime. To the contrary, everyone makes excuses! Well, they’re poor, or they’re unemployed, the cities need more money, or a million other fake reasons for committing a crime — ANY crime.

    If you are going to throw out wild accusations like that you have to offer evidence or some examples that you can say happen many thousands of times over the whole country.

    And the Waco bloodbath was treated exactly as it should have been treated. A bunch of trash got together and had a gun battle. No one treated anyone with “kid gloves.” No one got any pass from the media. And, just as no one blames all BLACK people for the actions of a few, no one, except pure racists, blames all WHITE people for the actions of a few.

    And for crying out loud, no one EVER blames all black people for the acts of a few. You have to be completely paranoid to believe that.

    DaShawn above asks a good question. ARE you a problem? You sure sound like one! And it’s a sure thing that your ignorance and paranoia are problems that are going to prevent you from prospering in life.

    How do I know this? I’m a rational observer.

    1. I’m going to respond in one sentence. Unless you can fully understand what it’s like to be black in America or at least make an effort to do so, you will never get where I or others who speak similarly are trying to tell folks like you so quick to make asinine judgments.

      1. Wrong. Being able to “fully understand what it’s like to be black in America” has literally nothing whatsoever to do with understanding that your top post was a bunch of paranoid baloney. What a dumb thing to say! And how do you know what I fully understand and don’t? Cuz here’s something that’s obviously true: no one fully understands what it’s like to be black in America. That’s not even possible. I’m guessing Lebron has a different life from Denzel who has a different life from Prince who has a different life from any other black person in America! Fully understand! Ha! What an ignorant thing to say!

        You said, “No matter what, black people are constantly seen as the problem in America. It’s safe to say that no matter what we do, our faults end up overshadowing our accomplishments” Ya know, maybe if you stopped all the paranoid whining and making excuses for failure, you’d do a lot better. Time for YOU to be a rational observer, instead of just me.

      2. If you weren’t being so condescending, maybe you would read my response. So, I’ll reiterate. If you don’t or won’t know what it’s like to be black in America, especially during these times, you will never truly comprehend what I’m saying. If that is so hard for you to understand, maybe you need to find another blog and quit talking to others like they’re beneath you. Just a suggestion. Or maybe you would prefer I ban you instead?

      3. I should repeat what I said, because you apparently don’t read what others write. There’s no such thing as “fully understanding what it is to be black in America.” And you have no idea what I understand and don’t understand, so why don’t you stop pretending you do. It’s entirely possible that (1) what you said was silly and wrong, or (2) that you expressed it poorly, or (3) both. The point is, your post is a bunch of paranoid raving about problems that are not big in America. And as “Sorry ’bout…” said, everything you wrote was opinion and feelings. Nothing wrong with writing opinions and feelings, but if you don’t back them up with facts, then you open yourself up to the charge of writing baloney. Anyone can write down feelings, but they’re meaningless without support from facts, and as a result they just might be wrong. Look, if your post at the top is correct, then there have to be hundreds of thousands of racial incidents every year. There are a few dozen that anyone ever hears of. In a country of more than 300 million people? A few dozen means exactly nothing.

      4. There are facts. You are just too blind or ignorant to see them. And you’re right. You can never fully understand what it’s like to be black in America, but you seem too lazy or too proud to even try to understand just a sliver of the black experience. Sure, we are all different, but most, if not all, have experienced racism at one point or another just the same, because even though we are not a monolith, this society treats many of us similarly. If you can’t understand that bit of reasoning, I think we’re done here. Goodbye.

      5. Maybe you should listen and open your heart and mind to the FACT that you just might be wrong. All the EVIDENCE points that way

      6. When are you going to stop pretending you could possibly know what I do or do not understand?

        You have to make up your mind. In one breath you say that black people are not a monolith, and in the next, you imply that it’s possible to “fully understand” the black experience in America.

        No one can fully understand the black experience in America. And YOU have NO idea under the sun what I understand or don’t understand. Please get that through your concrete head. Why don’t you get off me and talk about what I’ve said?

        You keep talking about facts, and you refuse to produce any. I think you’re not aware of any of these so-called facts. But, I’ve been reading your blog for a while, and there HAVE been facts produced. And they all argue AGAINST your point of view. At which point you banish the ones who give you those facts.

        Ready for something I “fully understand” about the black experience in America? Here goes: no black people are trying to leave America. But there’s sure millions and millions of brown people trying to get into this supposedly racist country!

        I forget who it was that said that, but it was someone on this same blog and you banished them, of course. And what was your argument again? Oh, yeah, I have “lots and lots of facts,” but you just refused to produce them. What are you waiting for? Surely if this is such a racist country, you can point me to AT LEAST 200,000 racist incidents in the past year. Let’s do the math. There are about 190 million white people in America. If there were 200,000 white racist incidents in the past year, that would mean that about one white person in 1,000 would do something racist, right? If whites are so racist, then you should be able to point me to AT LEAST that many incidents. And even if you could, one racist in 1,000? Sorry, NOT a racist country. I’ve read your blog, you point to a racist incident here and another one there. At the end of a given year you talk about a few dozen such incidents, and you bluster and rant and rave a lot.

      7. Why should I bend over backwards to prove something to someone who’s already closed his mind off to differing thoughts, opinions and truths? Why should I waste precious time doing what an obvious troll says? Anyway, I don’t speak for all black people. I speak based on my and other people’s experiences and truths. We all have different experiences, but at some point, we all experienced racism. That is the truth. There are mountains of evidence out there that supports that racism is still going on. Even more so is that there’s proof that it’s systematic and institutionalized. That is a fact. There are articles and books, among other things, that point out that truth, and you CHOOSE to ignore them because for some reason or another, they are wrong according to you and your ilk that seems to constantly deny that racism exists.

        Here’s the bottom line, sure there are singular racist incidents, but at the end of the day, racism is systematic and institutional, like I said earlier. We see it in prisons, police actions, the media, education, even in the workforce. And if you’re still hellbent in saying that it doesn’t exist, you are purposely living in a fantasy land where ignorance is bliss. So why not stop rambling and start listening to those who may know more about racism than you, and you might learn something. Then again, you and the rest of the likeminded thinkers hate to do that. You can’t see yourself as listening and seeing what you can do to help solve the problem. Instead you condemn others for acknowledging the problem in the first place. You must really feel proud of yourself being so condescending.

        Anyway, this conversation is over. You have nothing to say that is constructive, observant or rational lol. Seriously, your comments contradict your screen name severely. How can you be a “rational observer” and yet, you conclude that racism is nothing more than a few incidents a year and not an institutional problem. That’s sad. And if you insist at going on about a subject you apparently know very little about, be my guest. But don’t be surprised when I get tired and consider your responses are nothing more than spam or trash.

      8. Let’s examine your nonsensical post bit-by-bit.

        You said:
        Why should I bend over backwards to prove something to someone who’s already closed his mind off to differing thoughts, opinions and truths? Why should I waste precious time doing what an obvious troll says? Anyway, I don’t speak for all black people. I speak based on my and other people’s experiences and truths.

There are articles and books, among other things, that point out that truth, and you CHOOSE to ignore them because for some reason or another, they are wrong according to you and your ilk that seems to constantly deny that racism exists.

        What’s wrong with what you said:
        No one’s asking you to “bend over backward,” but I’m suggesting that you do at least the minimum. You’re not bending over backward, you’re just lounging around doing NOTHING. You just say things with no hint of possibility of tying what you say to the general condition of the country.

        You accuse me of being a troll, but as usual, all you’re doing is focusing on me rather than on what I said. That’s a very bad habit you have. You ALWAYS accuse those who disagree with you of character flaws. That by itself is a SERIOUS character flaw of yours. You should stop it. If you were to pull out of your response to me all that’s perfectly irrelevant, you’d have nearly nothing left.

        And, it seems sad that I’d have to point this out, but you couldn’t possibly have the slightest clue as to whether I’ve closed my mind or not. You seem to reject out of hand what I say, which indicates that YOU have the closed mind. And stop the petty name-calling. It’s stupid, undignified and unbecoming an adult.

        What’s wrong with what you said:
        No, “systematic and institutionalized racism” are opinions. Any rational observer knows that the idea of “institutionalized” or “systematic” racism are completely abstract concepts, so can’t be proven or disproven. That’s why the complainers hang their hats on them. Because they have no ACTUAL facts to go on. That everyone has experienced racism means nothing. Everyone has experienced a whole, wide variety of abuse; from cruelty, to insults, to pettiness, to slights, to arrogance, to condescension, to unjust firings, to layoffs, to unjust poor reviews, to temper tantrums, to cruel tricks. Life is messy, and so are personal interactions. But there’s no one rushing to leave America, so you should just face REAL facts. That fact that I just gave you, tha tno one is rushing to leave America, is a FACT that you refuse to address. Why is that, I wonder. No, I don’t really wonder about it. It’s because you have no answer to it. Oh, I can already tell you what you’ll say: “I wouldn’t bother addressing someone whose mind is closed.” Or some other attempt to dodge it. But, really, just another cheap excuse that I’ve already addressed above.

        What’s wrong with what you said:
        Where did you get the positively weird idea that anyone said that racism doesn’t exist? It’s not a big problem in America, that seems obvious. Though there is black racism all over. Including here. The FACT that no one here addresses what I say, but stops ion only to accuse me of things they couldn’t possibly know, and accuses me of things they couldn’t possibly know, shows that every here (1) thinks I’m white (and they couldn’t possibly know what my color is), and (2) that they already have all sorts of preconceived notions about who and what I am BECAUSE they assume I’m white, and that’s just racist. Plain ol’ fashioned racism that you should be deeply ashamed of.

        As for all the articles and books? For every article or book you find about how racist America is, I can find just as many that prove conclusively that America is NOT racist. Should I, who have no idea what you have ever read or not read, accuse you of things I couldn’t possibly know? Like you do? Why don’t YOU get off that stupid habit too?

        However, you said you wanted facts. Okay: (1) FACT: The President of the United States is a black man, elected by white people who are, by far, the majority of voters in America. (2) FACT: there is nobody trying to get OUT of America. To the contrary, there are all sorts of people whom you call by the condescending term: “People of Color trying to get IN. By the millions. (3) FACT: White people abolished slavery, enacted Civil Rights legislation, have transferred trillions of dollars of wealth to the poor and disproportionately to brown and black people (yes, mostly to single wite woman).

        Look, no one is saying that white people are perfect, but if you have to be oppressed by a group, it sure might as well be by a group that’s doing its level best to give everything away to you. Some oppressor! So, here’s fact #4: FACT: no black people on earth have it better than here in America. If black people had it better elsewhere, then AMERICAN blacks would be doing their best to join them. Want one more? Okay, here’s #5: One of America’s 35,000 black millionaires said this: “Average folks make excuses while the wealthy make money.” That’s right here: http://www.denniskimbro.com/americas-black-millionaires-food-for-thought/#.VWpI5c9VhBc. Here’s FACT #6. Same web page, where Dennis Kimbro said: “Remember each year $1.2 trillion runs through our hands without a thing to show for it. No other ethnic group tolerates such nonsense”. Dr. Kimbro, a black man, says that black people need only to CHOOSE to be wealthy, and there won’t be anything in their way. Certainly not racism.

        Go ahead, disprove ONE, just one, of those facts.

        What’s wrong with what you said:
        This is, again, just an opinion that you refuse to back up with facts. That PROBABLY means you have no facts to back them up, and you’re just blindly following something. Again, all you do is say things. Back something up. I dare you. After all, I backed up what I’ve been saying. With FACTS.

        We see it in prisons, police actions, the media, education, even in the workforce.

        What’s wrong with what you said:
        Okay. Show it to me then. FACTS. You know: Statistics, evidence, proof. But, look out for what you write that actually proves MY points. For example: black incarceration. Yeah? What about it? It’s ABOUT at the same rate as the level of black crime in America. The media? Every time there are indications that black America is in trouble, the media fall all over themselves to find or invent excuses for riots, black crime, black murders, black violence, etc. It’s always, oh, we must find out the root causes of black criminality! No one ever makes any excuses for white criminals. Because there ARE no good excuses. Simple as that. Education? If you’re black, and you want one, education is free in America. Even if you want to study something as useless as “African-American Studies” or the like. In the workforce? Blacks are represented in the workforce and in management at about the same levels as their educational attainment. Simple fact. If you are black and you get a good education, and you present yourself pretty normally, then you will find a job in America. In fact there are LOTS of companies begging you to go work for them so they can attain their affirmative action goals and not be extorted by the likes of Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton.

        What’s wrong with what you said:
        Just another dodge, BrothaWolf. It’s apparently you who can’t stay on-topic, and have to spend all your time insulting me and pretending that it’s possible to know how much I know about racism. I gave you REAL FACTS. Stop wasting my time and yours, and address THOSE.

        * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – *

        You said:

        What’s wrong with what you said:
        Again, you couldn’t POSSIBLY know what I hate or don’t hate, like or don’t like, love or don’t love. And you couldn’t possibly know that about anyone else either. Again, get off the irrelevant and set about to trying to prove wrong the FACTS that I gave you.

        * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – *

        You said:

        What’s wrong with what you said:
        Never have I condemned anyone, but rather what they’ve said. If what someone says is stupid, then it’s stupid. If it’s unsubstantiated, then it’s unsubstantiated. To say otherwise would be to lie. And lying to you, as your heroes on the left do, would be one whole heck of a lot MORE condescending than being honest to you. Furthermore, how are YOUR insults of my person not condescending? And YOUR ridiculous pretense that you could possibly know what I know, or like, or think, how is that anything but condescending?

        What’s wrong with what you said:
        Oh? Then it should be easy to knock my FACTS out of the park. Go ahead, give me (1) some definition of “institutional racism,” and (2) some FACTS that indicate that it’s everywhere, and (3) some indication that it’s a big problem, and not an imaginary one, for black people. I’m still waiting. So are any other rational observers.

        What’s wrong with what you said:
        Oh? YOU were apparently unaware of the FACTS I presented above. What does that say about YOUR level of knowledge. You seem to know NOTHING about ANYTHING that didn’t happen to YOU. Your writing shows you to be profoundly ignorant of the world around you. Are you as ignorant as your writing suggests? If not, why don’t you demonstrate it? I gave you six FACTS above. Want one more? Dr. Kimbro’s figure of 1.2 trillion dollars PER YEAR works out to about $30,000 PER black person in America. If that were a family of four, they would get an annual gift of the equivalent of $120,000. Every year. That’s DAMN good money to get for free every year! All I do is give you facts. All you do is call names, and suggest that you know things that you couldn’t possibly know. So, now, how is it that I’M not a rational observer?

        * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – *

        Why do I bother with you? Because I’m a rational observer. Your invective and immature name-calling and evasions and off-topic dodges don’t bother me at all. But they do reflect very poorly on you.

      9. You must have a lot of time on your hands to worry so much about what I blog about. But it matters not. Racism exists, and if you were such a “rational observer”, you would see that. It’s obvious that you’re not. So, this conversation is nonproductive.

      10. Don’t you get tired of fabricating strawmen? Of course no one ever said that racism doesn’t exist. However, I’ve pretty much proven that it’s not a big problem, and your failure to address that fact says that you agree with that conclusion.

      1. It seems there are a lot of mentally unstable people out there who love coming to blogs like this one and spewing their lunacy. Nice try. They do provide comic relief though, if you can get past some of their long rantings. I usually get cross eyed after the first paragraph.

      2. Everyone’s biased. Against a whole array of things. Just a question of what his or her biases are. Bias doesn’t have anything to do with being rational. I’d HOPE you were biased against child molestation, for example. Why would you post such a stupid post, Mack?

      3. Wow, Herneith! You allowed a mentally unstable person to come in here and logically clean your clock? What does that make you? Oof! Better take your “happy pills” again, you’re playing out of your intellectual league.

      4. What was difficult to understand, BW? Mack called me biased. I simply pointed out the obvious: EVERYBODY’s biased. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with being biased. In fact, it’s IMPORTANT to be biased.

        Bias has no bearing on whether one is rational or not. I then pointed out something against which everyone ought to be biased.

        When Mack said I was biased, he was implying that bias and rationality are mutually exclusive. They’re not. Therefore Mack’s post was stupid. It was clearly and succinctly stated, and wrong.

      5. Wow, Herneith! You allowed a mentally unstable person to come in here and logically clean your clock? What does that make you? Oof! Better take your “happy pills” again, you’re playing out of your intellectual league.

        How so? I haven’t engaged you in any sort of ‘debate’, and have no intention of doing so. So much for your logic. Besides, I don’t have the time you do to bloviate and spew a bunch of crap. Where do you get the time?

      6. How do you come to THAT silly conclusion? Mack said something patently stupid. It would have been dishonest of me not to point it out to him. If someone successfully “calls me out,” I will be the first to admit it, and to acknowledge his or her superior argument. I have no desire to win, only to learn. You should try that sometime.

      7. It would have been dishonest of me not to point it out to him.

        Do you think he cares? Take your ‘superior’ intellect and blow it out your hole. Mack is a very erudite writer, your opinion has no bearing on his reality except to act as an irritant. As for ‘flipping’ the script on Mz. Nikita, nice, but no cigars. It doesn’t matter what group you belong to, you are an all round arsehole.

  2. @ ‘Wolf, “It’s safe to say that no matter what we do, our faults end up overshadowing our accomplishments as well as overall humanity and individuality though the eyes of the white racist mindframe that continuously sees itself as innocent and normal while it sees blackness as criminal, pathologic and something to be feared and taken care of mostly by imprisonment or brute force.” THIS!!!

    Sidenote: Is anyone reallY buying into this obvious troll’s name being “DaShawn”? Nice try, but you lose-thanks for playin’ though.. lbvs

    1. Is anyone buying into MzNikita’s pretending she’s a black woman? She’s obviously a white spy trying to make black people look stupid by posting her brainless fluff. Nice try, BUFFY!

      BrothaWolf, I respectfully request that you ban “Mz.Nikita.” If she’s REALLY black, which I doubt, then that’s just really embarrassing. Otherwise, it seems obvious she’s just a white spy.

      1. I figured as much. She’s an embarrassment, but she a racist embarrassment, so she’s okay on your site.

        I still think she’s a white racist man who’s writing the stupid tripe she does to try to make it seem like black people are stupid.

      2. I don’t think you’re telling the truth. Maybe YOU’RE a white guy too. I think she’s white lady named Buffy, and you’re a white guy named Stan, and you’re both trying to make black people look stupid by posting the crap you post. I dare you to prove you’re black.

      3. You can’t prove anything to one who’s mind is already closed. Anyway, if you don’t like what I post, why bother visiting? That makes no sense, but then again, neither are your accusations.

  3. While I highly doubt Brothawolf nor anyone on Brothawolf’s site has ever been a problem in any way, I would ask anyone if the following constitutes a problem:

    http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/local/Father-Memorial-Day-Philadelphia-Attack-Group-Juniata-305061081.html

    Contrast that with “feelings” that some, not all but some, black families claim to receive from white neighbors when they are alone in the neighborhood. Compare “feelings,” which are relative and unique to each individual, and “bad looks” to the above. Are the individuals involved in the harassment and violence mentioned in the piece worried about being perceived as “problems?”

    Would they perhaps rather fit well into this shirt:

    The “Don’t Tread On Me” coiled snakes are a nice touch.

    Just a question and some food for thought.

  4. ..Thanks for settin’ the Projectionist Troll, dear ‘Wolf! 3 things I have Never been accused of in my life: #)1 Being perceived as “white” (though having a Cali “accent” has caused people to jokingly say that I “speak white”, as though POC are only capable of grunting and not being able to talk English properly-snarf!), #2) Being called a man (it doesn’t get any curvier than yours truly), and #3) Being called an “embarrassment” to myself, family, friends and/or anyone who knows me personally-quite the opposite actually as even my own teachers throughout my school years up to University have are and quite proud of being affiliated with moi as student and helpful classroom participant. So, take that in your pipe and smoke it along with those “rocks” you’re obviously puffin’ on as well! lolol

    Sidenote: For the record, I’ve never listed my full Multi-ethnic background on this site so You Lose again!!!

    1. Nor have I listed my background, yet you presumed to tell me what my background is. Mz.Nikita, or should I call you Mr.Nikita, you’re definitely a racist white man, trying to make black people look stupid with your idiotic posts. And your clever, but fake, biography, isn’t fooling anyone. You’re obviously a racist white troll and BrothaWolf should ban you.

      1. Deshawn, again, I’ve known Mz. Nikita longer than you. I know she’s genuine. I don’t know what your beef is with her, but you need to chill out.

      2. BW: knowing nothing about me whatsoever, she accused me of not being who I say I am. Here’s her quote: “Sidenote: Is anyone reallY buying into this obvious troll’s name being “DaShawn”? Nice try, but you lose-thanks for playin’ though.. lbvs”

        Well, by definition, that means that it’s okay for me to accuse Nikita of not being who he says he is. He’s obviously a white spy trying to make black folks, and particularly black women, look stupid by posting really stupid posts. After all, “Nikita” IS a man’s name.

      3. I’m calling foul on Rational Observer and DaShawn! I think that the above post proves that DaShawn is Rational Observer .

        As you probably know, I’m very sympathetic to daShawn’s and Rational Observer’s points of view, but I am not sympathetic to anything but fair play.

        Pretending to be two different people, Rational Observer/DaShawn, is not fair play.

        Best,

  5. ..Yawn, get off my bra strap, Mrs. “Duh-Shawn”-why are trolls always sO fascinated with pestering me(?) *Shrugs* I’ve always liked my mom’s cool thinkin’ outside o’ the box by giving me such an Androgynous name (a Russian boys And girl’s name) and I’m not even a Soviet! lol Hippy parents are cool like that..
