In answer to the Day 1 Question “When Did You First Realize You Were Black (or X)?”

When did you first realize I was black

I am from the Caribbean of mixed race. My parents are mixed with African with- my mother of very light complexion and my father East Indian.  I didnt really notice that I was black until I came to America. I just never thought about color at all. Now after living here for 12 years I am very conscious of it - I am different.
