I bet none of you would have guessed that I am black. My parents, aunts, uncles, sisters; we're all black. Growing up i got told I was actually white because of how I acted. It was supposed to be a compliment but it is not. It never will be. Calling me an Oreo is not funny. My insides are the same color as yours; not white or black.
Just recently i had my second child and the names suggested to me by white friends and coworkers were Jaylen, Briana, Jasmine, Kia, Ciara, and the likes. But when my white coworker was pregnant the names suggested to her were; Sophia, Natalie, Alice, Charlotte.
Notice a difference? Though we all have the same income, same interests, same profession, I am expected to name them something more "black". That's not right .
I ended up naming her Alexandra by the way :) Her brother's name is Samuel.
