What is the matter with people?!
(Portland, Oregon USA)
Gorgeous, and mine!!!
I have two beautiful and awesome children! I am black and my husband is white. My children are very light skinned and since the birth of my oldest, white people have assumed that they are not my biological children.
Being from the black community, I have always known that no two people are exactly alike, even in the same family. My middle sister is caramel colored, I am medium brown and my youngest sister is dark brown.
It seems that people who are not used to other cultures are stuck in a world of one color for other races. What about the fact that "white" culture is varied in skin colors, hair textures, eye color, etc? How sad and closed-minded!!
Does anyone know what the deal is?! I am tired of being in the grocery store and having to convince a total stranger that my children are my own!
