And I hate it when people say I embrace my “white” side, because my mother is definitely Scottish and doesn’t talk with a “stereotypical white American” accent.
I embrace how my parents raised me, which is to be educated, confident, and independent.
Race shouldn’t be an issue when it comes to those things. It shouldn’t be an issue at all, actually.
And until people realize that, the progress will always be slow and stagnant.
