I made a wrong decision by urging you to go ahead and your light skin and you good hair to get by. I should have made a better effort to make people believe you are black. I am writing about how you saw me on the other side of the street and you did not even stop to talk you me, because you don’t want people seeing you talk to a Negro. Why because they might have a second thought that you are black. I know I urged you to use your features to get by but come on you need to remember where you come from. I should have made you believe in yourself that you are more than just a light skinned black boy who is white and black. The reason why you are that color and why you have good hair.
