Is That Wrong

Dear Diary  

The other day I was out shopping with my boyfriend. We found ourselves in line next to another couple. They caught my eye because they were all cute and young and in love, so while trying not to be rude, I will admit that I was staring a little. They were just too cute! And that’s when I noticed what the girl was wearing. It was a cute, bedazzled t-shirt that said “BLACK GIRLS ROCK”. She was indeed a black girl and personally, I would agree that she looks like she rocks! But then I thought about it. Could I wear that shirt? Probably not. It would be weird. But what if I got my own ethnicity shirt? Could I wear a t-shirt that says “WHITE GIRLS ROCK” ? Personally that seems a little lame to me, but I’d be more worried that it would seem racist. Alex could wear a t-short that says “NERDS ROCK” Jason could wear a short that says “GINGERS ROCK” But what about me?
