What if I were born black?

It’s so hard some days to make sense of anything. Humanity, not color, should define us. I was born in the Midwest to non-racist parents. I moved East where everything is ethnic.

    It’s easy to say that color doesn’t matter when everybody except like_three_people is the same color as you, such as in the midwest. When you move to New York and you see the other races up-close it’s a lot harder to maintain that color shouldn’t define you, when it clearly does. Tolerance of diversity is directly correlated to distance from it.
