Was I asked to be Black?

Vickie Crawford,
Syracuse, NY.

My Dad use to call me “yellow girl”, my Mom when mad called me “little yellow wench”, and I was happy go lucky I think because I didn’t know I was BLACK. It wasn’t brought to my attention until I went to kindergarten that I was black??? I feel I can get along with anyone, but an ignorant person is not 1 of them.
