"I'm not quite sure how Black I am."


In answer to the Day 2 Question “How ____ Are You?”

How Black Am I?

I’m not quite sure how Black I am. When I was very young, some of the other Black children called me an Oreo. Some of the children who said this to me had lighter skin than I. I think it was because I spoke reasonably well and dressed somewhat differently than some of my classmates.
