Sometimes I find being a black man in america very difficult. Most of the difficulties come from not knowing how to act in different situations. As a black man, who is trying to make it in america, I have to have at least 10 different faces that I can be able to use at anytime.
What I mean by I having ten different faces is, that at certain times I have to act a different way in a different situation, because I have to match the perception of the people I’m around. I can’t be the black man I am with my friends, with the rest of the world. I have to change how I am based on the situation. I can never be who I really am unless I’m alone.
