Not everything is valid when seen through the lens of race relations.

Don’t take it personally. Really. Two can play that game. Would you appreciate hearing banging sounds and hollering at 4:30 AM? I didn’t think so.

This is not about your ethnicity. This is about you learning to be a decent human being who gets along with others. If you define your “Blackness” as the right to annoy others, you will learn that your neighbors can annoy you too.

Apartments are not a place where people share music at the wee hours of the night. I don’t care if it is a Symphony Orchestra, Polkas, or Tuvan Throat Singing. If it’s running at full volume at 2 AM, you can expect someone to be offended.

Save your Blackness argument for things that matter. Unlike your race, you can change your attitude.
