Three Strikes- Black, Deaf, and Female

Although I have lived with three strikes for more than twenty years, the color of my skin always has been and always will be fundamental to who I am. When you are colorblind, you do not see me. Overlooking a portion of me that is susceptible to the brutal ignorance on a daily basis takes away the strength I draw from it to carry on. Recognizing that aspect completes me as a human being.
