My Jewish friend has a mole on the exact middle of his knee, and so do his other family members. Since he and his family were the only Jewish people i knew, I thought that only Jewish people had moles in the middle of their knees while other nationalities had them on a different spot in the knee, since I was Norwegian-American and most of my friends were American/Mexican and didn't have moles in the middle of our knees.

I once watched a video on youtube where a man slices his knee on a sharp rock and he gets a deep gash in his knee, when i was 5, and I was scared that if i got a deep gash in my knee, and I would die slowly since blood comes out

top belief!

For some reason, I thought that the term "black people" referred to people who had black hair, instead of people with dark brown skin. I had seen people with dark skin before, I just never made the connection or remembered that black people actually meant African-Americans and similar.

I'm white and have dark brown hair that looks almost black, so therefore, for a few days, I thought I was black. I even once thought I had an afro, until my mom told me that I actually have a straight bob cut(sort of like Severus Snape, or the classical composers Chopin and Liszt).

I didn't even realized that a lot of music I listened to as a kid wasn't even African-American, it was actually more European(like classical music from Little Einsteins). Wow, this post is kind of long for a belief i had for a short time!

When i was like six or seven years old, I once thought that when someone said something about "black people", it referred to their hair color, not their skin. Because of that, I thought that I was black, since I had black hair. I don't even know why I thought that, since I'm actually far from it!

When I was 8, I used to believe that Specsavers (an optitions in the UK) had a glasses factory under their shop where they made glasses and they would put the glasses in a tube so the people working there could collect the glasses.
