hold up, I have to come clean.A lot of the time they don't know much about Somalia or Somalis other than pirates so you can laugh it off. But sometimes they know more than just that..it's those times that I hate. I make excuses like oh yh but I was born in the west tho and don't know much about Somalis or Somalia hehe and hope they let it go
I'm a proud Somali, I'll even bring up a pirate joke and might even throw in a "look at me" barkhad reference.
What made you hate your identity so much? is it family issues, culture or the things that are going in Somalia.
