As soon as I hopped off the plane in New York in 2011, immediately, folks were asking me where I was from. Of course, I said LA and I received responses like, "Nooo, you can't be from the states," "You look like you got something else going on in you." They kept complimenting my complexion and wanted to see what my natural hair looked like just to guess where my black roots were from. It was a slight culture shock coming here because there are so many different black people that come from different cultural backgrounds, countries, and islands. In LA you're either Black, White, Mexican, Asian, or Persian. Black people are all in one category, there is no real separation based on the culture.
