My Mixed Roots

My Mixed Roots

A little girl (that is me, yours truly) annoyed by negative perceptions of race and racial identity it's place and the narrow identity spaces in this world.   
I like most kids just wanted to fit in.  Very tender heart, hurt by the labels I didn't want nor deserved. But as most do, learned to navigate and get through each day, always with a smile.
My gramma used to tell my mother, "you'd never know anything ever bothers that girl, she's always smiling"  Gramma... I'm still smiling!

Isn't TV in color these days?  Why isn't this an image we can see on TV or in films more often? 
 I'm here with my dad and my mom- who is pregnant with my sister in this photo.
