I have an average of a 3.0 but is it not good enough because I'm black? I always perservere but is it not enough because I'm black? I would like to be a lawyer will I not make it because I'm black? I love to read but but does it count because I'm black. When will this hate go away. Will it stay because I'm black?

It seems like everything I do people say you know you black? Why is that stopping me from being who I want to be?

You shouldn't let sterotypical racist tendencies get you down. I believe that you are just as capable of becoming a lawyer as anyone else on this planet. Ignore them; show them you are strong and can do it. You can do anything.
