    Sorry can't pick just one so:
    1. only being allowed to take 1 meat from the pot
    2. being forced to eat food that your auntie cooked
    3. sitting between your mums legs as she not only brushes your hair, but your ears, neck and forehead also and you jos have to firm it
    4. Everything you do wrong is because of your fathers side of the family
    5. When your friends knock for you and ask you to come out to play, you say you can't because you're getting your hair done. They say that they'll wait for you, but they don't understand that getting your hair done will take the whole day
    6. Planning to run away after your mum beats you but then you smell her cooking and decide to unpack
    7 judging your white friends who tell their mums to shutup because you know that if you tried that, your mum would be in prison and you'd be in care
    8. Walking Into school and having your friends stare at you in awe and amazement because your hair 'grew' down to your back overnight
