I’m skin tone white


I’m skin-tone white. 

Wasn’t apprised of that til around 3rd grade.

My house growing up was filled with jazz musicians.

Never taught skin tone was a factor.

Learned it in school though. 

Learned that I was part of the white club.

ignorance and fear.  two prerequisites of the white club. 

White folk: deny you’ve heard n-word jokes from white brethren. 

Did you laugh? I know you did (at least sometimes), I was there.
