    I'm starting college next Thursday, and I'm kinda nervous. This is gonna sound so weird lol: basically it's a predominantly black college and I feel like I don't fit in with the black girls (I'm black btw). All my life I've had mainly white friends and hung around white people and most black people tell me that I "act white" or "listen to white people music" even to the point where I got called a white girl. I'm comfortable around white & black people but i feel like I don't fit in with blacks because I don't have your typical "black girl stereotypes": rap music, long extensions etc.

    I suffer from a mild stutter so talking to new people (especially black) makes me nervous aswell .

    I don't want to change college because they've got the exact courses I want to take
    ANYWAYS😂😭 has anyone got any tips for me to overcome all this? I need help😂

    Don't worry about it, i'm black myself, but I don't like to hang out with certain black people I usually stick to the white kids at my school or asians. You will find people there who are just like yourself, so enjoy it and goodluck! Also wish me luck for tomorrow i'm starting too
    And as for your stutter it's normal no one will find it weird
