What prompted me to begin blogging was a website that I would visit fairly often. After reading various bloggers and blogging myself a time or two, I realized that some people really dislike others merely because of their genetic makeup. Here in Louisiana, we are proud of our heritage and make no excuses for who we are. I am black and a creole, so is my husband. It has taken me a while to get comfortable in my skin but I have always loved my heritage. My maternal grandmother was a Choctaw Indian, My great-grandfather arrived to Louisiana from France. My question for today is, why do people get upset when others refused to deny parts of who they are? Do you have to be just black, white, or asian and deny your Indian grandparents,white parent, black parent or whatever the case may be? I say no. What say you?
