“My mom just did so good of hiding things. I know this sounds crazy, and it’s probably going to go viral when I say this. I didn’t know I was mixed until I turned 9 years old, which is wild," Kane says. “I just thought I was all white because I didn’t know my dad. My mom ended up telling me and I was like, ‘What! What do you mean?’

"So I started learning all kinds of different new things. Growing up as a kid, I never thought about stuff like that," he adds of being biracial. "I just lived life.”
