Why do people deny their blood? Why they are not proud of the blood running deep inside of them??? Why a man comes to me with heavy Indian accent and when I ask him where is he from he says he’s from Barcelona? Why does a Bengali man say at last I’m going to my home country and when asked he says USA? When asked if he was born there he says no just moved there 3 years ago. Why when meeting a black man playing basketball and ask him so where are you from he says I’m from the states with this heavy African accent?? Why? Why is it when an Indian guy come to chat up my friend with his horrible (English wanna be) accent doesn’t simply say I am from Indian origin but I was walk the world with an English nationality?
I know why I denied my ½ blood! I was angry! I hated my dad! So I never wanted even to think of his blood that runs in me! For over 7 years I said I was ½ Finnish and ½ black (never made it clear what black) some days I was ½ English, some ½ African, and some ½ American! But never ½ Arab or Kuwaiti!
I am a proud ½ Kuwaiti! Yes I have my issues with my dad… yes I will never be friends with him! But I’m damn proud of my blood!!! My ½ blood come from a wonderful family! They are good people… ok no family is perfect with any issues… but they are good people! Yes true I do not believe in ½ of what they believe in, but who the hell I am to judge their believes??? They are a family that built them selves from scratch! Their money was not found in trees, but they worked their asses so hard to make it! They are smart people! Their children are doctors and all university graduates! They worked hard (or most of them did) to keep their family together! They are respectful and very well loved by other families! So you are damn right to get to hear me say I’m proud to carry their blood! Maybe I will never have contact except by very few of them… but I’m still proud of the rest of them!
True I walk the ground of this earth with my Finnish nationality that I’m so proud of… But that doesn’t make me deny or less proud of my ½ Kuwaiti blood!
So! Hello! My name is Nora Cassandra and I’m ½ Kuwaiti! 😀
