The Crisis of a Black Person in the Suburbs

Rule #1: Make sure all white people are as comfortable as humanly possible around you.

Rule #2: Get every rap song (that isn’t by Eminem) off of your phone.

Rule #3: Get an entirely new wardrobe. Don’t argue, just do it.

Rule #4: Make sure you speak the Queens English.

I will say this:

“Ghetto” is not a synonym for black people.
“Ratchet” is not a synonym for black people.
