I don't even know where to begin. Someone on here told me to keep my wig on today, so there's that.
Um, my hair is curly and it's down my back and grows out of my head. While I used to own a platinum blonde wig as part of a Storm costume (because I would never fry my hair like that), I don't wear wigs.
Of course, because I have long silky hair, I can't possibly be black.
Even Black people don't think I'm black.
No, what are you really? No, really?
Indians think I'm Indian, lol.
The worst part is when I do share my heritage with people they feel justifed that I'm not "black."
Umm...I'm half American, half-Caribbean. Didn't you know Black people live in the Caribbean?
And regardless of the diversity of the skin tones in my parents and my family tree, both of my parents are considered Black.
