Black. White. Red. Blue.
Four colours. Four people. Four perspectives of life.
One problem. Four thoughts.
It is raining heavily. There is no umbrella.
Thought 1:
It is my bad luck. Why did I have to come without an umbrella today? Why couldn’t someone at home remind me to take my umbrella? I know, they don’t care about me. They are all so busy with themselves that they don’t have enough time for me. Why does this always happen to me? Why can’t I have a happy life? Everyone hurts me. Everyone hates me. I have no right to live. I am the BLACK sheep.

'My name used to be Mabinty Bangura and I was born in Sierra Leone during the Civil War. I was born with a skin condition called vitiligo, which made people believe I was cursed, and they would call me the Devil’s child. My parents realized that my future in Sierra Leone would be really hard. So from an early age on, they tried to educate me as much as possible. I was 3 years old when my father was killed by the rebels, while working in the mines. My mother and I had to go live with my uncle who believed I was cursed. Therefore, he would barely give us food.
