Growing up it was always hard to find my own identity because I came from a bi-racial background. I am half Black and half Japanese and always had problems being accepted by either racial group because of my uniqueness. Although coming from a low-income housing development called the Rainier Vista Projects did help me to identify with my Black roots as it was a predominantly African-American community and as the saying goes, ” If you have one drop of Black blood you are Black”, and your birth certificate is proof of that.
