I am unique, beautiful, and gifted.

Greensboro, NC.

I am proud of me, who I’ve become and I will continue to grow. I am also proud of where I come from and grateful for the path my ancestors has paved for me. I am beautiful, unique, and gifted . This will forever be true, and my race does not identify me.

    …oh yes it does and be glad of it. Embracing your African Race is natural…
    …it’s yourz!…loving who you are is healthy as long as you don’t get narcissistic about it and BTW…that’s a very good view!

      Oh yes it does and be glad for it? Really? Her actions as an individual shouldn’t have to reflect just because she’s African American. I’m sure thats’s what she means, no labeling

        …individuals are part of a group and there are connections that are concrete…like Racial ancestry. Your outer shell which is called by Race is your identifying characteristic that is connected to who you are as an individual and as a member of a Race. No individual overrides the Race in importance or identity. You can call youeself what ever you want, but the Race defines your history and your identity. Your point is irrelevant.
