Black ? No. White? No. Human? Yes!

I struggled for four decades to find some sort of racial identity…I’m bi-racial by my DNA, but having been raised in white culture where white people called me black I’ve never identified as white, and having been raised in white culture I didn’t “experience” black culture so I don’t Identify as black…and to identify as bi-racial one needs to have some feelings of connection to both white and black culture, but I don’t feel connected to either. I’ve realized that I FEEL more comfortable and happy without a racial identity.
