I am a bright skinned young woman, grew up in Southwest FL. We we’re not tought about our history in school. But racisim is and was learned at home. Because of that I grew up and still am a loner. No one wanted to be friend me because I didn’t look the same as they did. I have taught myself about history by doing research. But I still long to find out my history and where I come from. So Far hitting dead ends.
