Careful What You Wish For Boy - Group Show WowXwow
Hey non-white person that grew up in a predominantly white area. As a kid did you ever wish a magic genie could grant your wish and you'd wake up with blonde hair and blue eyes?
Careful what you wish for, boy.
As a kid in my all white 3 stoplight town in western New York state i wished I could be white, viewed as normal, that my appearance wouldn't be the reason for my ridicule, that i could be viewed as a suitable/acceptable to date. Now I would not trade being Korean and Asian, for all the gold coins in the world.
