I spent 20 years in a high tech firm. There were only a few black people that I knew. And I probably knew about 200 people by name. You seem to be like one half of the black people who I knew . . . foreign born. I knew 3 Nigerians, 1 Ghanese, 1 Jamaican, 1 Puerto Rican, 1 Columbian, and probably 7 US born. Maybe 7% of the people I knew by name were black.
There was one black man in my area. One time he was in a nearby conversation with someone else . . . an Indian friend turned to me and whispers “ever notice that almost everyone talks ghetto to him?”
“yep . . . “
”do I do that?”
