What is an interesting childhood story?

I thought I was white until I was five. I just thought my parents were tanner and had cooler hair. Most of my classmates in kindergarten were white and I was around them, but I wasn't really conscious of race. My parents don't emphasize things like Kwanzaa and MLK day. I learned about black history eventually but it wasn't like my parents told me I had to, it was something I wanted. As I got older, I did get questions about my race but I have always thought of myself as a person first and everything else second. It's not that I didn't take into account my race, but it didn't define me and even as a five year old I kind of picked up on how arbitrary it all is and that you should be good on the inside so people won't care about the outside.

None, they didn't exist for them, and technically I think breaking the tablets into pieces is like repealing them.
