So ‘Ratchet’ is the NEW Black?

I’m a African American female and I am irritated behind the fact that people associate African american women as loud and verbose. people are people we all have different personalities and ways of expressing ourselves. Stop with the categorizing and that is for any race or ethnicity. Vicious stereotypes have been used used on African american women for centuries have been taught to the younger generation and perceived in a jokingly way. Be yourself. Do not live up to the stereotypes just to fit in or be cool.
