***Caucasion Comparisons***

You know those awful tantrums some little White children display in public?

Those "MOMMY! I want it NOW!" hissy fits that makes them change colors and block out real-time happenings?

Well, me and certain brown people I know weren't allowed such public privileges. We had the mothers that would go to jail for "child abuse" if it was a choice between being publicly embarrassed and letting us be "self expressed". It was just a line we didn't cross.

Thus, as in last week, I've noticed in my not-so-young adult life that I exhibit similar tantrums of those same White children (that I later grew to envy). Only my present tantrums aren't explosive, they're implosive. Introvertedly expressed in the form of a "shut down".


And I thought I was different...

I'm sorry but yours is different. At least you keep it to yourself and you aren't disturbint the peace and quiet of other people. Only those who know you will know that you are shutting down and they will really only know it if they care to know it...if they don't care, they don't have to know. Plus, unlike those children who will continually learn to throw tantrums when they don't get something, you will get over it and you will learn to do without instead of complaining about it... I just don't think that you shutting down is the same as being spoiled and throwing a tantrum. I know this guy who was one of those White children who throws tantrums and he still does the same thing now as a 34 year old adult when he doesn't get what he wants. It is disgusting. YOU are not that. I'm sorry but I respectfully disagree.
P.S. you don't have to post this if you don't want to...I only said what I said b/c i know you and b/c I have dealt w/ your shut down mode and I don't think it is like those kids who need a good whoopin' to get their asses in line.
LOL! I see your point. However, sometimes all I'm missing is a lowered head, folded arms, and a pouted lip. Or at least in my head, lol.

Point taken though, Ms. Townsend. Point taken!
