Who are You? I am Black, Chinese and Filipino but have been told that I don’t look as such. My response to “Oh, you don’t look like you’re mixed with (fill in the blank)” is now, “Oh really? What exactly does that look like, then?” I am grateful to be writing for SWB because it’s bringing to light many issues that Black women are afraid to face and allowing access to a platform wherein Black women can express opinions and share experiences freely. It is a necessary outlet.
