As a Black woman who grew up with mostly white people, I am with you so much on #3!!!

Exactly! At the one of one of my favorite songs (Cantu by Anime), there’s an outro that goes,

“Who has nice hair? Me

Who can touch my hair? Not you

Did you think this was a petting zoo?

Do I look like somebody's dog?

Do I look like somebody's cow?

Do I look like somebody's lamb? No!

Sit down!”

And it’s my favorite!

I mentioned this in another comment but if you like to read (I read them digitally through library ebooks, which I imagine might be easier with your vision, since you can change the size of the text?), I really, really loved Nnedi Okorafor’s Akata Witch books. They really helped me reframe being different. Here’s a short quote: “We embrace those things that make us unique or odd. For only in these things can we locate and then develop our most individual abilities.”

Anyways sorry for the wall of text. Thanks for taking the time to answer all our questions. Best of luck with everything to you. Feel free to DM any time if you wanna chat about the books or anything. 🖤✨

I was going to recommend the same book series! I don’t have albinism but the books really helped me reframe the parts of myself that I or society considers broken or different. Highly recommend OP!
