When you look at me, what race do you see? Do you see my dark skinned grandparents, whose African relatives escaped from the Dutch slave trade? Do you see my last name, which reflects my “Latina” heritage, or do you see a brunette “white” girl, after hearing the way I speak and act? Racially ambigous is the term they use, but ignores the beautiful mesh of colors and culture that make me….me.
