I always wanted to be black

Angela,
Manchester, NH.

Since I was a small child, I have thought black people were more beautiful, more brave, more…everything than whites. I am white and grew up in a very white state. I always felt other than everyone else, and thought that being black must be wonderful. I didn’t realize until I was older that being black in America is very difficult. I don’t know if that makes me racist or not, but it’s not my intention at all.
