How to be a badass in the African-American community



If you’re a white guy living in the South and you’re wondering how you can become a badass, here are some tips to get you started.

1.

Be a white dude living in a Southern state.

In the South, white folks can be the ones to make it in the arts and business world, even if they are not white.

There are many white male and female professionals who are African-Americans who are passionate about the arts.

There is a growing black presence in the U.S. arts scene, and it has been in a big way.

The New York Times recently highlighted the success of black female artists in the New York City Arts Commission and the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.

And a recent article in The Atlantic highlights the growth of the black female artistic community in the United States.

So, if you’re living in or around the South (or the rest of the U!), it’s worth checking out the black male representation in the community.

There’s a lot of talent, so it’s important to find your niche.

And if you do find yourself in the position of working with a black male, you’re likely to have some really amazing things to offer.

2.

Take your African-Asian friends to the movies.

If you’ve ever been to an African-African-American theater or a Chinese-American cultural festival, you know the pain of sitting through long, drawn-out, monotonous presentations of African-and-Asian movies.

There has been a growing recognition of the fact that these movies are meant to be enjoyed by African- and Asian-American audiences.

And that means there are a ton of films for Asian audiences.

Here are some good Asian movies for you to check out: The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, the Jungle Book, Kung Fu Panda 2, Star Trek Into Darkness, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, The Little Mermaid, and so many more.

3.

Have an open mind.

You may be surprised to find that many of the films you’ve seen so far have some elements of the “white savior” trope, like the love triangle between the African character and the white savior.

But many of these films also explore a different, darker side of the world: the darker side that’s often associated with people of color.

Here’s an example of this in the recent film The Black Man: The Story of Michael Brown.

This movie features a black character in a pivotal role.

It also includes a strong supporting role for a black woman.

So it’s a powerful film for African- American audiences.

4.

Know your place.

If, like me, you were raised in a racially-minority neighborhood, you’ve likely spent some time wondering why your white neighbors wouldn’t understand you.

And there are lots of ways to find out.

Check out the new Black Lives Matter website and the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter.

If that doesn’t convince you, check out the hashtag, #IamBlack and #BlackPower.

5.

Know that you’re not alone.

When it comes to the arts, black people are more likely to be the subjects of art than their white peers.

So don’t be afraid to ask.

And make a list of any projects that are on your radar.

If your peers don’t have the same interest, then you may be missing out on great opportunities.

If they do have an interest, find a mentor who is willing to take you under their wing and help you find your voice.

This is especially true if you don’t speak a language.
