I grew up in the Portland area and moved away a few years ago. When I meet new people in my current city, or wherever I happen to be traveling, and they find out I'm from Portland, they always have questions.
The white people in my life just don't care. My fiancé is white and he doesn't want to hear it anymore. My best friends are all white, and they have been radio silent for the past year. But what do I expect? These are the same people I spent my adolescence with pretending not to be black.
