I am starting a revolution by indicating my race when I fill out forms or applications

I am very race conscious. From BET to OWN to EBONY to ESSENCE I believe in race consciousness. I wrote my ECE 210 paper on a book called Kwanzaa and Me and I got an 86% and I couldn’t be happier. I really feel that being Black is a good thing. I don’t want to be anything else or something I am not. I accept and love the color of my own skin. I love my lips and I am trying to start my own revolution. African Americans and Black people world wide should be proud of who they are. I am against bleaching cream. I am against being ashamed of your blackness and I am for embracing everything that makes me me.
