I'm not saying this to sound all progressive, but I keep getting warned by a co-worker that being one of the only non-black people in my department would eventually get on my nerves. I didn't even notice until he brought it up. That just strikes me as odd.
When I'm around people I don't know, I think I distinguish white from non-white much more than when I know the person, even a little bit. To me they're people, not colors. It's the shitheads with the thug culture that get on my nerves but that's hardly a black thing.
