    OP brought up the fact she is black. Her being black is all we really know about her apart from her being female. Twerking is a big thing in 'black' Western culture, hence the question was asked of the OP. Stop being so butthurt and overly paranoid.

    If I posted a thread about being Muslim, I'd also expect to be asked about Muslim cultural stereotypes and their accuracy

    The thing is that black people are usually from different constituent countries, so having those stereotypes can be very annoying and oversimlifying. It's like saying all white people are obsessed with garlic, saying "zut alor" and wear stripy t-shirts. And I'm sure people would pull me up on that. I don't blame people for their ignorance, but c'mon!

    Twerking is customary to the carnival cultures from some caribbean islands and the Americans commercialised it. That's where it came from. There is no "Black" culture. People in places like Sudan are not twerkers.

    but what does that mean? The ambiguity in your answers are seeming covertly mocking of a pretty serious thing :dry:

    Hiyya I sometimes wear it natural but at the moment I've got braids n yh definitely the best decision to he heat free as your hair doesn't get damaged

    How the hell is that racist? It was the first thing that came into my head as I've been catching up with the Commonwealth Games. Why is everyone so sensitive and paranoid these days?

    I'll re-phrase it then. Do you like sport, OP? Are you good at athletics?
    Yh I like dancing hut not running lol

    Do the black girl stereotypes annoy you? You know, 'you're such a sassy black girl', twerking, people laughing at black 'ghetto' names and words, big bums, stereotypes about your hair etc. You might not even know what I'm on about, but I see stuff like this on twitter.
    I don't really get annoyed cause I know there r people who stereotype everywhere n I think it depends on the place someone lives in for example in north wales there were few blacks you could Hardly see a black girl but here in Manchester its packed with everyone from everywhere.
