I remember being in a soccer tournament and girls were chatting about how diverse the team is. "Oh! We all have different coloured hair!" And they went around the table saying- "Look! Brunettes, Blondes, and Redheads". Then they looked at me and was like- "Black hair!".

And I was like- you guys now I'm not white right?
