Wow, I can’t believe you’re black!

Growing up in society I have always been questioned about my race. I come from two very, very light-skinned African-American parents, so therefore I am very light, have soft curly “white people” hair, and don’t necessarily “talk black”. Being this kind of person draws attention to myself because people always make a big deal out of how I “don’t fit the typical stereotypes of a black person”. I am constantly trying to change that image and stereotype for the better every single day.

      Well done. That is the funniest comment I’ve seen in a long time.

        I was just being silly… didn’t mean any disrespect.

          Really funny either way.

            How is that funny?
