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

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!

I used to think that white people were white because they ate too much vanilla. I'm black and i saw a white person for the first time at walmart when i was 5, and i shouted "look mommy, vanilla people!"

I used to believe that girls had no nipples. I just assumed that nipples were for boys, and girls just had bags of skin on their chests.

When my little brother was born, I believed that the reason he has a dark complexion and I have a light complexion was because he had been born at night and I had been born in the morning.

When I was younger, I would always pass a tattoo parlor on the way to the grocery store. Secretly, I wanted to go there to get a tattoo. Except I didn't want a permanent tattoo.. yes, I thought they sold temporary tattoos !

I used to believe that freckles would spread (because an older kid on the playground had a very large black birth mark) and once you became an adult you would be black (black people) I didn't want this to happen to me so in turn any adult that was white, I thought was just lucky.

Until I was about 8 or 9 I thought that black people had just been burned in a fire and that was what made their skin darker.
