  • I wish yall had an episode about what it's like to be a multiracial person born of multiracial parents, all of whom identify as Black. Being children of the diaspora, not knowing mixed with what exactly, but you're not dark brown skinned so you are questioned on your identity often. But still, the answer, "I'm Black," never seems to satisfy.
