“I think it’s about race because I’m mixed and people just see me and my dad and they’re like, ‘What? That’s not his kid.’ So I think I want people to know that  I am black but my dad is white and that’s part of who I am also. Being biracial is just hard because [of] the disconnection between [races]. The fact that people just assume my dad isn’t my dad. It’s so frustrating when we walk into somewhere and [we are asked], ‘Are you paying separately or are you here together?’”
