Dear sweet lord, I feel your frustration. When is being articulate and black going to stop being sometime special? If I make a sound point or argument, said that and move on.
Not everyone is articulate.
True, Not all black folks are, however, inarticulate black people is the rarer thing to find. I wouldn’t be bothered about a compliment of how I explained some incredibly complex idea verbally to someone, but when people seemed amazed with my ability of express myself coherently at all, it’s condescending.
I can’t guess your approximate age, but I got that a lot when I was younger. Articulate young people are more interesting than the older set
I turn 40 in exactly two weeks.
Wow…. I just said almost the same thing in my six words! THAT, drives me up the wall!
