Drowning in generalizations; floating on truth

As an African American, I have several generalizations placed upon me.
Some people just assume who I am. I am rarely asked. While a lot of
these assumptions hurt, I know the truth. I know only my own actions
and words define me. I know that I am an individual. I know who I
really am and ultimately that may be all that matters.
