Not Being What Society Would Label My Race As - Keziah Mays

Since I am an African-American teenager, Society has already predicted my future. "African-American females already has been or will be pregnant by the time they are 16 years old and have dropped out of school. They cannot be independent or have a voice. They are ignorant and have no morals about themselves. They depend on the government to supply their needs and assist them in taking care of their children. They have no mind of their own. They are dumbfounded and weak-willed." These are a few stereotypes that are bold in the world we live in and that's far from me. I am the total opposite of these stereotypes and I'm proud of it. You should be too.
