State of in-between-ness

leave a comment »

I live in a state of inbetweeness, neither here or there, so where? Wherever I go people have to ask me where I’m from. Sometimes they try to guess, and sometimes I’m surprised at what they come up with.

Phillipine
Turkish
Algerian
Dominican
African
And so forth

But when you look closely, I can be all those nationalities because it all boils down to a mixture of different colors. My father was a black Puerto Rican and my mother was white of European descent. So, if we go way back I probably do have distant cousins in all those nationalities. It’s possible, no?
