Imagine if you grew up thinking your dad was one person, but he was actually another.
Imagine if you grew up thinking you were white, but you were black.
Imagine if your dark skin was explained away as a skin disease.
Imagine if your mother kept secret her "dalliances" and "hanging out" from your family.
Now... imagine this is not Dynasty or Young and the Restless, but your real life. True story.
And how is your family today?
