So I'm in 8th grade. I'm in honors/gifted classes and I'm 1 of the five black students out of 33 students in my class. To put it nicely, I really don't like 1/3 of the people in my class. They're do-gooders who are arrogant and full of themselves. I don't know if this is true or not, but I feel like they think that they're smarter and better than I am just because I'm black and never really "show off" my smartness. I'm usually to myself and don't get all riled up by other people, but their little snarky looks and comments are really pushing me to the edge. I usually don't say anything to anyone, but I really want to tell them about themselves and put them in their place. I'm not the only person who feels this way, other people in my class do as well. However, I don't think most of them do it intentionally. They do it subconsciously, but it still gets on my everlasting nerves. Maybe, I'm just not used to going to school in a big city; everything's always different in the city. I moved to where I currently live almost one year ago. I used to live in a small rural town where everyone went to the same school and everyone knew everyone. I can't name one person off the top of my head who was snobby at that school. Sorry for the long post; I just needed somewhere to vent! What do y'all think I should do about the situation, and why are smart, white people or smart people in general so snobby? I'm not being racist; I just tend to notice patterns. By the way, if it's important, I live in Georgia.
