Do we have anything of our own?

Ok, first off, this post isn't meant to be racist. I'm just looking at TV and I see things like weaves, crazy hairstyles, Afros, etc that were once uniquely African American and criticized for being "ghetto" but now thanks to Lady GaGa and the media, it's all good. For that matter, what about the shape of a Black woman? For years,we've been fat. Kim K comes w/ a lil ass and she's "curvy". Why in America is it bad until another race does it? Why is black or brown dirty but white pure? And why do we get jail time for the smallest things but other races can kill people and get so little time? *sigh*
Another thing that bothers me is ignorance. There is a difference between being a hermphrodite and being transgender and the fact that people don't take the time to understand that annoys me. Herphrodites are born w/ both sex organs and have to either make a choice of being male or female or their parents may make that choice for them. Transgendered people feel like they were born in the wrong body and live their lives as the opposite sex. Either way, the way the person lives their life can have major issues on them and their families. While society doesn't think to do its research, I do.
