Lower

I was in class and my white friend comes up and starts touching my hair. She asked if I was sure I was black and I was like “yeah…of course, what kind of question is this?” She told me I didn’t look black, she said I could pass as something else. “You actually look white” she told me. “You are the prettiest black girl I have ever seen.” Who says stuff like that?! I was so shocked. I told her she shouldn’t say things like that but she didn’t understand. She was insinuating that the whiter you look as a black person the prettier you are. It’s not much of  complement if she is saying I am only pretty because I look like her.
