W.E.B DuBois

growing up biracial✨ it was at this moment where i began to struggle with self-identity. am i white/black enough? why couldn’t i be both? as an adolescent, people’s comments would frustrate me and i would unconsciously do things to appease them. i just wanted to be like everyone else-i never wanted to be treated differently.
i no longer allow society or others opinion of me, my appearance, the way I talk/dress affect how i see me. luckily, biracialism and mixed-race families are more common and is readily talked about on social media and various other resources. change is coming✨
