We are HUMANS, NOT COLORS

I am classified as White/Caucasian because of how I look. This does NOT mean that I am the same people who enslaved your ancestors, or made them go on the Trail of Tears, or genocide them because of their religion! My mother’s side is Finnish, and my father’s side is Cherokee and Choctaw. FINNISH PEOPLE WERE SLAVES TOO! We are NOT just colors like Black, White, Tan, Red, or Yellow! We are all people, and we all have different backgrounds. Don’t hate people because of their background, they didn’t get to choose it!
