Whatever’s On My Mind Wednesday- Racial identity

In my early years (before I was 9 or 10) I didn't see people in color nor did I realize that people identified you by color. Obviously I knew that there were different skin tones but to me that is all that it was. All of that changed when we moved to the states for the first time after growing up overseas. Overseas I went to school on a military base and my class was sprinkled with all colors of the skin tone rainbow and my class mates's parents were from all over the world. Then we moved to South Dakota...diversity wasn't exactly the specialty.

Whatever’s On My Mind Wednesday- Fools Rush In

So we did typical first date things- went out to eat (he took me to a local pizza joint and ordered wings...how in the world can you eat chicken wings and look cute?! You can't so I decided f*c$ it, I'm just going to eat the wings, forget being cute, and trying to impress, that's not me anyway. So I ate at least 10 wings and a slice of pizza and wanted to go into a food coma). As we rode in the car one day I noticed that we had almost the same radio stations saved on our radios. If it were a town of 1,200 people that wouldn't be saying much but living in a city with a plethora of stations I realized we had love for the same music, oldies being our number one station of choice.
