I don't fit in, not even in my own family
(Los Angeles, California, US)
I have a Puerto Rican dad and a white mom. But I never see my dad's side of the family, because most of them are gone. And as a result, we always end up seeing the white side of the family. The only issue with that is that my dad and I are the darkest ones by far. I do have a brother, but he is kind of light-skinned. So I am the darkest cousin, and well my cousins love to point that out along with all of the other things that make me different from them; my full lips that are "way too big"; my upturned nose which "you can see your nostrils, it's kinda weird"; my thick curly hair which is "way too thick and gross" "too frizzy and curly" "maybe you should shave your head, then it might come back thinner, straighter, and prettier like mine"; and my butt/hips "they're bigger than my moms, isn't that kinda weird" They throw things in my hair, steal my bra's, they make fun of my lips and nose, they do everything they can to hurt me, and my brother does nothing, and I do nothing.
