Oreoism was mentioned in Assimilation Blues, and so I am coming out strongly against it as a black person raised in a predom white area. I don't think being an oreo shows much respect to yourself, your race or to white people either. It's not respectful to yourself or to white people to accept casual racism or to become the token good black person just to fit in. Why do I say it's disrespectful to white people? White people can choose to be good people if they want to. Let's not lower standards for them. As for your race, it's not respectful to always be like I'm different from other blacks. (note: this will be added to later)
