Born a Crime

This is a passage from Trevor Noah's book "Born a Crime" that I found really interesting. He was raised in apartheid South Africa as a mixed child and had to switch between multiple languages to navigate the world. He argues that "language, even more than color, defines who you are to people" because he was able to use language to change other people's perception of his race. [Published on 2016]
