Reply to "What is your first race-based memory?"

My FIRST raced based experience was in the 6th grade. A white girl in the bathroom asked me "How much grease do you have to put in your hair everyday?". I was confused. I didn't put grease in my hair everyday and was unaware that she was passing along the stereotypical bullshit her parents were pushing at home.

My most HURTFUL race based experience was a comment made by my BLACK best guy friend when I was about 20. He said "You would be really pretty IF you were light-skinned." Eek
