Am I black, white? Can’t decide.

Jessica Christian,
Winchester, VA

I am a human who comes from a mixed family. I have always felt stuck in between to choose what ethnicity I want to be. When school or any form I fill out would ask what my race was I couldn’t decide. My skin is fair but I was raised with my black family, and through them I learned love and equality, versus my white side distanced from me and treated me differently. I’ve been told I look white but I act black, but to me there is only one race the human race we all bleed red.
