Hi again. I talked to Latoya today. She was cool, but I don’t know if she likes me. After school I went to the store and spent my allowance on black stuff. I bought a huge pick that folds in half called a rake. I also bought some new music. Isaac Hayes, the Commodores, Aretha Franklin. I wish I could have bought more but $3.65 for an album is a lot. Anyway, I bought some clothes too. I got these really cool red, black, green and yellow tube socks. Those are the colors of the black nation, I guess. I asked my dad if he had any dashiki’s I could have and he gave me four. I don’t think he likes that I’m doing this. After I’m done with my homework, I’m gonna wash my hair and pick it out while it dries. I hope it works. So, tomorrow I go to school as a black girl. My friends are gonna flip out.
Talk to ya later.
