missalexlarosa I had to #repost this one! It's wild to me how race is created. Society taught me how I was expected to act as a person of color when I was just a toddler. When did you first realize you were of a particular race or ethnicity?

  •   photogenixxx When I first got called nigger in school 2d
  •   bright_bird About 2nd or 3rd grade. I was unfortunately mistaken when I assumed I could consider myself black bc I am. Some kids in my neighborhood made me realize that I'd spend my whole life being asked one of the most rude questions ever "what are you?" and being called lemondrop/Oreo/yellow. Good times. Lol 2d
  •   venessarenee89 ^^ yup! 2d
  •   an9uianoamornd When I was in 3rd grade and some girls were making fun of my "hairy mexican arms" 2d
  •   xcabadas I live in a community where the majority are Mexican, so growing up I never thought about race, because most people were just like me. They might have not all been dark skinned but the majority spoke Spanish and kept Mexican culture alive in their house holds. It wasn't until I switched to a charter school where I definitely noticed that I was different. I was suddenly the minority, and to be honest I felt uncomfortable. People were constantly asking me who to say words in Spanish. My name is Xitlali. I cannot tell you how many times since I then I've had people ask me how to pronounce my name in English. My name isn't meant to be pronounced in English... 2d
  •   miss_linds_ Five years old. Everyone called me half Indian. I remember asking my dad...when I grow up will I be full Indian? I truly did not understand how I could be half something. I get the dreaded "what are you?" Question constantly. I'm a person. I wish everyone saw the world through my child's eyes. She sees no races or colors...only people. 2d
  •   tinderoni Always! 2d
  •   lawren_queen13 In the second grade when I moved from the hood to the suburbs...you get strange looks. I live in the suburbs again and it's more intense...being looked at like you're different. 2d
