“So where are you from?”
“Well, I just moved here from Uganda.” (So much simpler than going into the long, drawn-out story)
“Really? Haha but you’re white!”
(Yes. I know. I have wished for years that I wasn’t. I know, okay? Do you realise how difficult it is when people think I’m ridiculous for loving my home so much because I’m not “really” from there? Because I’m white?
You have no idea what you’re saying.)
