You don’t belong, but same birthplace

Sebastian Portillo,
Fort Myers, FL

These 6 words are just a personal meeting to interactions I’ve had in the past with people against my race. I am of hispanic parents/ An older male told me once I did not belong in the country, and he was from Florida. What seemed funny to me was that I was also born in Florida and had been raised here my whole life, but because of the way somebody looked he was quick to make the assumption I was from somewhere else and did not belong.
