Raised by whitefolks judged by blackfolks

Lashanda Burns Carter,
Scranton, PA.

I was raised by a white family from the age 4 until 13. There were some great things and some really horrible things. But I am who I am because of the environment. Open-minded nonjudgmental, well spoken, humorous, and very shy African American. Who loves Motley Crue and hates cornbread. Black people have said u act too white or even that I want to be white. White people say I am not like other black people. This is nit a compliment. Or that I am the coolest black person ever. My own people judge me more than any other people. I don’tget it. But I don’t get a lot of things. **shrugs shoulders**”
