Recently I’ve become more accepting of a part f me. A part that I’ve tried to hide from others because I was ashamed of what I was. Changed my mannerisms to fit and eventually led my own way to self hatred of my kind. I knew I was this way since I was little, the way I was in school, my way I acting around other kids, it wasn’t hard to see. So today I bare it all and just come out with it. I’m a geek.

Geek, nerd, or whatever you want to call me, that’s what I am. Highly intelligent with proficiency in mathematics, technology and high spatial skills. I’m no longer ashamed to hide who I really am. So what I can program, I read comic books, watch Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Anime. I’ve seen every episode of Star Trek: TNG, DS9 & Voyager, praise the accomplishments of Steve Jobs and read the any and all Macintosh news. I play video games; console, computer and handheld. I mean like role playing games. I use to play Magic: The Gathering on a daily basis.

I come out today cuz I no longer care what people think of me. I am a black geek and I’m proud of it.
