“I can’t hide being Black. My nose, my eyes, my lips, my cheekbones. Come on, ain’t no White part of me except my skin. You can’t judge a book by its cover. I know that’s the oldest cliché in the world, but it’s true…You see my skin and you automatically get your perceptions about what I’m about, but really you don’t know me… Some people just don’t understand that being a Black albino is part of my identity…If I say I’m a Black albino, accept me for who I am. My Blackness is important to me.”
