The struggles of being mixed race in America.

    Hi my name is Erika Richardson and yes I am mixed race that’s what I always identify as my mother is black and my father is black and half Jamaican his grandparents were white so I’m a mixture of them all. I struggle with my race it’s very annoying when people are always like “well you don’t look that race or that race” or why are you so different? Question like that I hate hearing or “you don’t look like you would be mixed with that so and so” is anyone else experiencing this? I’m sure I’m not the only one #mixedrace #speakup
