I have lived in Kenya for over 5 years now (if you count our year in '97), and still to this day people gawk at me as if I'm a 'freak,' because I have white skin.
People get so excited when they see a white person that they forget, I am JUST THAT, a white PERSON. I have feelings, too!
Just today a lady screamed with a loud shrill pitch while pointing her finger at me, her mouth wide opened as I drove past, "Ooooooh! Mazungu!" (Oh! A Brittish! [which I am not]) I hate being pointed at and shouted at as if I'm an animal or something bazaar to look at.
So I just pointed and shouted right back, "Oh! Mkenya!" (Oh! A Kenyan!)
She just stared at me in shock. Yes folks, white people speak, too.
Thought you ought to know.
Perhaps being the black sheep would actually be easier?
