I honestly can’t understand how so many people can go through life with their friends and social circles all the same color. How close-minded and insecure. I say insecure because most people have trouble connecting with someone of a different race other than them. They also lack confidence because it’s “safe” for them to surround themselves with their own.
I can’t tell you how many people have tried to “level” with me by talking about music. I always smile and converse back while being so glad I can easily relate and conversate with people on deeper matters other than music. 👀🤦🏾♀️🙄
When you have friends of different nationalities, it broadens your world. I love learning about different nationalities and their cultures because it’s so fascinating to me. African, Native American and Hispanic / Latin cultures are the biggest and most diverse cultures that exist. The history of the people, who they are, where they came from and how they came to be is both inspiring and enlighting.
So much has been used from these cultures in regards to inventions, music, food and entertainment just to name a few. 🌎🌏🌍 You can’t get such knowledge if all your friends are of the same color or nationality.
I challenge you to broaden your horizons and get to know people from a different ethnic background other than yours. Be confident in yourself and please, speaking as a person of color, steer clear of stereotypical topics. Anyone can discuss a superficial topic like music or food. To us people of color, just as an FYI, you come off as insecure and shallow when you choose to discuss stereotypical topics. Just saying…🤷🏾♀️
Until next time…
