Being Dark Skinned Quotes

When I was around four years old I asked my father, "Aba, what color are you?" He replied, "I dont know, a bit white, a bit black." "Its like when one mixes milk with tea," I said.

I'm a black woman who is from Central Falls, Rhode Island. I'm dark skinned. I'm quirky. I'm shy. I'm strong. I'm guarded. I'm weak at times. I'm sensual. I'm not overtly sexual.
