Maybe because of how interested and inspired I am by the civil rights movement.  Nope, I am definitely white.  I probably have some black ancestry somewhere, though.  We're all a mix of races in reality, but I just happen to be overwhelmingly more white than anything else.

I have relatives who used to live in Mt. Prospect.  They moved out about ten years ago, but that's still cool.  Small world, huh?

5. I was the first student to receive a perfect score on an exam in one of my college classes

8. I have never seen any Star Wars film and did not see The Wizard of Oz until I was 16
