Christmas Day 1996, I was born to a Black father and a White mother in California. I had what I thought was the perfect family: two loving parents who provided for me, a younger sibling that I could have fun with, and pets to play with out in the yard. I had friends who I would regularly enjoy the company of. I truly thought I had the perfect life! I had this mindset for the first 10 or 12 years of my life, and nothing drastic had happened to change that. Little did I know, that was about to change.
I moved to Northern Michigan when I was 6 years old. Even though I was so young, I knew it was quite different than California. As I reflect on that experience now, I would’ve expected to be greeted with some kind of racial prejudice when I first moved there. Fortunately, that wasn’t the case. I immediately made new friends, finding them at my local church and even making friends with the kids on my street. I continued to view my life as perfect or the best it could possibly be. Who was I kidding? My life was pretty good. Nothing major had happened to me, my parents, my sister, or anyone else in my family. I had no complaints.
After 6 years of living in Michigan, My parents had to relocate the family again due to the job economy. We found ourselves in Texas, which I was soon to discover was the complete opposite of California or Northern Michigan. When we first got there everything was going okay; we were adjusting to a new state that had a completely different atmosphere and…
