IamA black guy raised by white parents in rural southwest USA, AMA!
I'm a black guy in my mid-twenties, and I was adopted by white parents when I was less than a year old. I grew up entirely in a tiny oil town in west Texas before moving to Austin for college. I have an older brother, who is my parents' biological son. Growing up, I very literally had no black friends or acquaintances, and I was constantly one of two or three - maximum - at my school. (Well okay, to be fair, I have some black cousins, because adoption is kind of a "thing" in my family -- but they grew up in a different city and I saw them very rarely.) All of my friends were either white or Hispanic.
In the U.S., I have never lived in a place with a large black population, and at the moment I live in a small country in the ex-USSR, so I've just always been "the black guy" and have never expected to fit in very well with others. I do often feel a frustrating sense of in-between-ness: not being white but also not being black enough for other black people or for white people.
All that being said, I have always sort of regarded the fact that I am black and my parents are white as an extremely banal thing, but people are always really interested/surprised when they find this out about me, so I thought, hey, why not do an AMA on reddit? Ask away!

Fortunately, this picture is almost 8 years old -- I'd like to think I look at least a bit less lame now. If it's not obvious, the woman on the far left is my mom, then my brother and his wife, then me, then my dad.
