You are a white person undercover.

I was a 20 year old indigenous childcare worker at a Salvation Army in South Phoenix which was a predominately Black and Latino neighborhood. Apparently the father of one of my students felt I wasn’t “Black” enough and said this to me as he picked up his son and I was conversing with him about what his son did that day in preschool. I am a first generation African American of Mende and Krio descent born and mostly raised in Orange County, California. Currently I’m an Master’s candidate in Social Work.
