You are more than your skin colour, your race, your gender, and your physical attributes.
Recently, I was in a heated discussion with a friend of mine about a few things, one of which was the topic of identity.
He defines ‘identity’ in regards to physical attributes – what you first see in a person.
I disagreed. I define ‘identity’ as the collection of the unique features and characteristics of an individual (in this case) has that sets him or her apart from the rest. (According to some websites online, that might be generally what identity is defined as too.)
I have this thing about identities. The first time I actually spoke about identity was with another friend of mine on the topic of race and skin colour. I couldn’t stand with his point of view that he is only his race and skin colour; I almost couldn’t understand.
