I grew up in an all-black society, and for the most part, my colour or gender was never really a thing – and by all means, I am pretty average, lah. I enjoyed interactions with different people and cultures; however, it never occurred to me that I was from a specific race that had a rich history in oppression and discrimination and subject to gender bias as well. Of course, I was very much aware of history but never directly affected by issues of race. I never had to deal with my colour until in college.
