Just because I think smoking weed is stupid, that doesn’t mean that I judge people who do it. People are free to do whatever they want to do. I do my best not to judge, but of course, I can’t help it when it doesn’t make sense (i.e. I can’t understand your reasons for doing it/see where you’re coming from) or is morally wrong.
Sure, there are a lot, and I mean, A LOT of racist people out there, but honestly white people don’t owe us anything. The white people today are not the same people who own slaves. Those people are all probably long dead now. Yes, white people have privileges that we as black people (and minorities) don’t, but whose fault is that? All that means is that we as black people as a whole must work harder to earn or generate our own privileges. I can honestly say that black people are the most racial people I’ve come into contact with. We as black people have the amazing ability to take one minute trait somebody has and find some sort of racial root in it. Oh, and racism is the thought that one race is inherently better than the other. Power has nothing to do with it. The only difference is that a racist with power could do more damage. I feel like a lot of minorities just need someone to blame for the shortcomings in their communities. If you’re not where you want to be in life, all that means is that you need to work harder. Maybe if you were actually working and trying to do something, you wouldn’t have so much time to complain about people trying to hold you back.
Okay, so this is a particulary unstable subject.
Do I believe in love? Yes. Do I believe that I will be in love anytime soon? Not really. I feel that as teenagers, we all lack the maturity to handle real love. Would I like to be in love? I’m not sure… I mean, love, real love, is like the biggest responsibility a person has. I don’t think that I’m ready to handle another person right now. I can barely handle myself. Do I think I’ve ever been in love? I don’t think that I’ve ever been in love before. I do think that I have had strong feelings for people. I just don’t think that I love them. Not in the romantic sense, anyway. Love is complicated.
Love is too complicated for me. I just don’t think that teenagers can process love. Most of us think we’re in love too early, and that causes us to be cautious and unwilling to give in future relationships. Or worse, (in my opinion) you could be hung up on one relationship you had for the rest of your life. I’d rather not deal with that right now…
I definitely don’t belive in love at first sight. That is a bunch of bull. You cannot love someone from looking at them. Seriously, that’s stupid. You might fall in love with them later. But what “love at first sight” really is a nice combination of lust and physical attraction.
That won’t keep me from pursuing love, however. I do believe that one day I will find the one person who connects with me. Till then… I’m not rushing into any relationships… cause even if you aren’t in love, you can still get your heart broken.
