LISTEN TO THE EPISODE:
“There were days when I was crying and saying, ‘Mommy, why am I black? I want to be white like you.’”
These words are heartbreaking to hear coming from someone as positive and cheerful as my guest, but they highlight just how much racism people of color face from a young age.
Jessica is a German African American who has lived in Germany since she was in kindergarten. She joins me on the podcast to talk about George Floyd’s death, watching the events in the USA from Europe, and the racism she experiences on a regular basis in Germany.
