Compared to Utah, there are tons more black people here. I love that. I love the diversity! But something that I really appreciate is people FINALLY noticing I'm not black. There is nothing wrong with being black, white, brown, purple, pink.....all is beautiful and FABULOUS! But I'm Fijian and I'm proud. I am not black. My entire life people always thought I was black - I had the dark skin, nappy hair....and some junk in the trunk! haha.
But since we've been here - several people (black and white) have told me they know I'm not black. They said that my features are more exotic, I speak beautifully, my eyes are pure.....kinda random things like that. Either way, they just know I'm not black. Which is kinda cool cause I guess I'm finally starting to LOOK poly haha. People are so funny. Cracks me up.
