“Acting black” is a pejorative term applied mostly to white people. This term refers to someone who assumes “black characteristics”, as if those existed. Some characteristics stereotypically associated with blackness are aggression, stupidity, and lack of education and class, characterized by the word Ghetto. This term, and its counterpart, Acting White has many expectations and stereotypes attached to it, and is therefore unacceptable. Black and white don’t come with certain distinguishing characteristics, and should therefore not be used to generalize or stereotype. Blackness comes in all shades, cultures, classes, experiences and values. There’s no guide to being black and there’s not one singular “black culture”.
