There's a conversation I often hear among European-Americans/white people, which often disturbs me. That is " they/ African Americans/ black people are mad, and have a bad attitude". Well, let me explain "mad" to you from our prospective, and maybe you will consider this the next time you make such statements. We are MAD. I'll explain. MAD; M-Men with responsibilty, children, wifes, bills to be paid, etc. A-Articulate. Educated, engaging, capable of conservating with anyone on any level. D- Duteous. Respectful to all people, agree, or disagree. Hopefully, European-Americans will keep this in mind the next time they say, "we are mad".

Funny, I have never heard this in a is a generalization, one which I do not care for in the least and IF it was to come up in conversation I would have had to ask the speaker to kindly look in the mirror for the definition of "MAD"!!!!

Yes. You're right, it's a generalization, and that's the problem. However, believe me, this conversation take place. And, it would blow your mind, where these conversation take place, such as, for example; the workplace. It is appalling. Thank you, for your comment. Have a great day.
