Have you ever been that token guy/girl?

Recommended Posts

In school yea, I kinda could move between groups so sometimes I used to be with the white pub going lot, they used to try to get me to come pub with them, did it a few times, I remember a look the doorman gave me 1 time though put me off frequenting places as the token black not gonna lie.

Yes most recent times being a few days after I got back from Brazil.

 

Went to check my friends who've got a screen printing studio, little did I know they were going camping for a triple birthday celebration. I brought a change of clothes cos I thought we mind end up going out and I'd crash at one of theirs so as far as they were concerned it was a no brainer, I said no at first but eventually gave in.

I was the only person of colour on the camp site, had a terrible sleep and my hayfever battered me. We woke up and went for a trek in the woods, climbed to the top of a hill and they all got high out of their faces on some cocktail of mandy, weed and some next ting whilst I was stone cold sober. 

 

My first camping experience, was kinda jokes looking back.

even if someone says something offkey they check themselves

My friend groups have always been pretty varied ethnicity wise, though I was definitely the token white guy at uni.
