Uncomfortable to Admit

“Write about your relationship with your racial/cultural identity. When were you first aware of being Asian, Caucasian, Jewish ‘different’ from other people? Did you grow up within a certain group, and/or as an outsider to other groups? See if you can recall a specific incident when you experienced your ‘otherness.'”

-Kim Addonizio, “Ordinary Genius”

 

I was raised colorblind

I don’t see race

Unless I’m the minority
