10 Things Black Students Hate Hearing at Mostly White Colleges

10. “So, are you here on scholarship?” – I’m not sure why there’s this misconception that black students can ring a bell and then our tuition is covered because of our race.

9. “Why do you talk so white?” – First, it is not possible to talk white, black, or any race. I’m certain a person’s accent is usually based off of where they are from. So if you mean to ask why I articulate my words and don’t “spit slang,” it’s just not what I grew up with.
