How To Be Black

My children are mixed race. I’m white, and my husband is Korean. Someone asked my sons what their father was, and they said, “He’s Korean.” When asked, “What’s your mother?” They said, “She’s… nothing.” I didn’t have a special language, food, clothing, dances, so according to my six and 9 year old kids I was “nothing.” It was hilarious.
