“Desperate to look, act, and be revered as much as the blond-haired, blue-eyed girls in my class, I formed an internalized prejudice towards my own race,” Allan admitted.
“I made constant attempts to make friends with those children I believed embodied the ideal characteristics, only to become a willing accessory in their own blooming prejudices.”
