I’m more than just a color

Jasmyn Joseph,
Lithonia, GA.

I’m from Mobile, Al….. Bible Belt city, unfortunate my grandparents where witch doctors. My granny is half Black-American and Native Cherokee and grandfather was said to be Haitian. While my dad is a creole and Black-American mix. Yet, with some many mixtures in the boiling pot, I’m usually all the time mistaken for South African. So when I tell people my ethnicity, they make this comment “why are you so dark then,” and I say ” darker the berry sweeter the juice!”

Keep the conversation going - comment and discuss with your thoughts
