I'm sure that there are more but this list comprises of what I've heard, thought, or read are the "bad black people". I certainly have been known to exhibit a few of these characteristics or way of thinking. Some may ask, what is the point of this? I think that's a good question. The purpose for me is to think about all of the ways in which black people in my community, my "echo chambers" have condemned other black people. What types of identities are shunned? What types of identities are disgraceful, shameful, or condemned? A lot black people may find issue with me listing issues in the "black community." I don't because at the end of the day I believe that black is beautiful, that black  people are fucking amazing, and that this circulating in white spaces won't further oppress black people- racist white people, along with racist institutions and the practices some of these "bad black people" perform will be enough to ensure that white supremacy continues.
