I had a very distant aunt who had a very old, faded and distorted tattoo on her arm. When I was a little kid, I used to think that the green splotch on her upper arm was actually where a bird had pooped on her and left a permanent stain.
i used to think the color of african americans skin was black because God had a chocolate pouring machine and he put some white babies on it and it would pour chocolate on them. i concluded that their palms were white because their palms were down on the conveyor belt so they didnt get any chocolate on them. then once i saw my black friend get water on his arm from the water fontain and i thought that his arm would turn white.
I used to think "birthmarks" or "beauty marks" were just a polite term for cancer, and if I looked at someone with a birthmark, I would catch cancer and get very sick and die
i used to believe that colored people were burnt in gods oven
When I was 3-4 yrs old i would stay in the bathroom for hours and wash my hands, i belived if iŽd wash them long enough they would shine like a silk glove..
I was taken on a London bus in the 1950's when the government was encouraging people from overseas to come to fill certain jobs. Seeing something I had never seen before - a lady with black skin on the bus - I screamed loudly and pointed to my mothers embarrasment (and the lady's probably) "Mummy Mummy that lady needs to go to hospital!!"
i used to believe that if you drew a colour on your arm you would turn this colour over night, so i wrote my favoerite colour on my arm (PINK!)
and over night i had slept on my front and as i woke up i was very pink and sweaty! i had my dad explaining that you only got hot over night!!!
When I was young, I used to think that if a black person and a white person had a child, the baby would be half black and half white. I mean a line right down the middle seperating the two havles. I thought racism existed the because some people didn't want that to happen.
I used to think that African American ppl were made of Chocolate. SO I wanted my mommy to have a kid that was african american.
When I was in kindergarten, thought that African-American people were colored the way they were because they had been playing in the dirt. I was afraid to play with them because I thought I would get dirty too!
light-skinned girls had special powers.
Once when I was little i got this big gash in my foot. Later I was picking the scab and I found a blood clot. Imagine my mother's scrprise when I frantically started sceaming that there were worms living in my foot!
When I was younger, I used to have a lot of freckles on my face. One time, my dad told me that freckles were what happened when cows came into your room at night while you were sleeping and farted on your face. I couldn't sleep for a week.
When I was little I had white blonde hair, and was very, very pale, but I thought Jayne Kennedy was the most beautiful woman in the world. I wanted to look just like her. I saw AfroSheen commercials on TV during Soul Train, and I came to believe that if my mom would buy me some, I'd come out looking just like Jayne.
I have a little cleft in the edge of my skin. When I was a child, I asked my mother about that she said "Before God sent you down from heaven to me, he pointed to you and said 'that's my favorite angel.' and left the mark of his pointy finger." That's what i believed for 15 years.
I used to think wrinkles came about because people just grew too much skin.
When I was little, my dad told me I had freckles on my face from throwing rocks in the toilet. For the longest time I would try to rub the freckles off my face.
Ok, I"ve got 1 4 u. My friend and I used to believe that if you had frekles all over your face (like we did) you had a potentiotial of being a millionare, but all your $ bills would have brown dots on them.
I used to have a wart on my hand which I thought was actually a potato growing there. So I called it my potato. I never did understand why people looked at me funny when I showed them my potato. I eventually had it removed, and thought it would be used to make potato chips. I kinda missed my potato.
My dad was always a rascist and a bit of a pervert. So one day when I was being breastfed (I was 3), my dad told me how chocolate milk comes out of black womens' breasts. My mom laughed so hard and then told me it was true.
Not far after that, I was having trouble sleeping. I told my parents and they warned me that I would get dark circles under my eyes. And then they told me that black people get would get white circles under their eyes.
