Lol, actually something like that has happened to me before. On a road trip with a mate of mine we went to the country town in which he used to live. There was like only one asian family and they ran the chinese restaurant so I felt very out of place there.

Definitely. I feel like I don't belong when I am in such a situation.

I usually sweat like a whore in church.

^^My mother and I always say that..."I'm sweating like a whore in church"

But yes, I do feel uncomfortable in some situations in which I'm in the minority. I get nervous as hell.

It depends on the majority. Wolves? Yeah, I'm uncomfortable. Blacks? So what.

I would prefer not to be the only Christian in a room full of satanists. Not that I'd be scared or anything like that, but I don't think I'd like it.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 11/15/04 - 9:31:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, that's actually one of the things I don't feel uncomfortable about.

UL makes a very good point.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/20/04 - 3:35:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not really. I'm used to being the freak.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/20/04 - 4:48:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, but it makes me feel competitive and ready to defend myself if I'm criticized.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/20/04 - 5:11:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not at all (with people) but like UL said wolves...yeah
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 12/23/04 - 12:11:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
a little bit yes

Im white and when i was five i lived in mexico till i was eight and then have lived in hawaii where i am a minorty since i was 10-11 and now im 14. Living as a minority for a lot of my life makes it uncomfotable for me to be in a room full of only white people. I would almost go as far as to say large numbers of white poeple make me scared, so i quite enjoy being the minority as long as its not on because of my opinions, it doe make me uncomfortable to be the only one with my views.

as long as the majority are people, I won't feel out of place.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 4/5/05 - 6:14:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
sometimes, but other times it feels good
17 yrs ago - Tuesday 5/3/05 - 8:39:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I love being the minority.
17 yrs ago - Friday 5/13/05 - 1:42:10 AM EST (GMT-5)
some times I like to break away from the big group
17 yrs ago - Friday 5/20/05 - 11:10:40 AM EST (GMT-5)
i think bein the minority can be fun in a way...as long as everyone eles isnt againest the reason ur different.... that would suk...

I took my best friend (black girl) to a ZZ Top concertin NC, and she asked the lady who took her ticket (who was also black) if she'd seen any other black people enter the stadium yet. I was cracking up.

Nope. I relish an exchange of view points, and will quite happily be the odd one out.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 6/20/05 - 3:35:41 AM EST (GMT-5)
i like to be the minority
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 6/20/05 - 3:20:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not really, I am me and me is I, and if there's anyone that has a problem with that they can come and tell me. If I stick out I honestly couldn't care less.
