In what ways do you stand out?
I like to think I stand out in particularly bad ways, but that’s only because I’m a pessimist.
1. I rock an afro among a predominantly white community.
2. I don’t always say things that make sense. (I know everyone does this, but I seem to accomplish this feat during moments that prove to be most embarrassing.)
3. I don’t speak like a “typical” black person. (In fact, if I try, I am laughed at by whites and blacks alike.) I have been told I am articulate.
