for some reason my nieces and nephews love to point out how light i am
We're at the beach and as we're walking across the sand my then 8 year old niece says
"auntie, why is your feet the same color as the sand"
My 5 year old nephew stayed over for thanksgiving. He lives in florida so he doesnt see us often.
Out the blue he says:
"how come you arent dark like daddy and uncle? How come you're white?"
me: "Im not white, Im light skin"
nephew: But you have white people hair, so you're white
me: no, my hair is straightened. And im the same color as your mom!
nephew: my mommy is white
me: no your mom is puerto rican
nephew: so you're puerto rican!
me: no im black
nephew: nope you're puerto rican
