How would you describe the blk community on your campus?
Truthfully I would describe it just as the outside world but a little better. See in the outside world there are subdivisions of black people. There’s blacks as a whole, which turn into blacks who are white washed or wish to be white, which doubles over to intelligent blacks who would rather be around white people and intelligent blacks who actually share the knowledge with their community. Of course on the other side you have not so educated blacks, drug addicts, gang bangers ect. On campus it’s kind of like that but better.
Some of the community is wholeheartedly and snobbishly whitewashed. They will say it themselves “I don’t like black…” (insert whatever it may be for the person’s situation ). Be it black women, black men, the black community, oh yea…it’s all there. Then of course there’s the educated blacks on campus who put others down because they don’t know something (I’ve actually met some of these types of people and it wasn’t pleasant). Then you have the others who keep to themselves, but over the vast majority I would say, especially since this quarantine started at least try to stay together. Hell truthfully the only time I’ve seen the entire 1% of the black OSU population (that’s actual facts by the way) was this huge party on the middle of the oval. But it was night time. Everyone comes out at night but never the day. Why, well that’s for your own opinions and observations .
A good portion of my acquaintances within the Bosu group chat all say the same thing. “Y’know…the black community is never this put together. Let’s keep it this way. Let’s continue to build this community upright because it needs it.” This in response to protest and deaths ect. But the black community on campus actually stood their ground together and it was a shock. Now it’s about keeping that same energy. All the way through and forever.
