I'm black, I'm very light-skinned & people often think I'm mixed (which, oddly enough, cuts me some slack for being 'different'), but I'm still obviously black. Do you think it's harder being Lolita? I don't mean to down my own race, but it seems like [most] black people are extremely close-minded when it comes to alternative fashions. I can't count the number of times I've been told I was 'trying to be white' just for wearing gothic clothing or something. I can just imagine what their reactions will be when I wear Lolita out. I know I should be prepare for this just for wearing Lolita period, but our fellow African-Americans can just be so...*bold*. (and persistent, I've had people follow me) Does anybody else feel this way, or I'm I just being too sensitive?
