literally brought a tear to my eye
You have no idea how often I get asked “What are you?” and “Why do you sound white?”. Or even the other day I got told “You’re pretty attractive..for an ethnic guy.”
It’s like no. First off, I’m Jared. I’m a fucking human being who was born from a Caucasian mother and a father of Caribbean decent, who was adopted by two Caucasian parents. I don’t sound “white” I sound like me, I happen to care about the vocabulary I use when communicating with other people. And lastly, I’m attractive for an “ethnic guy”? How is that even a compliment? Are people of other skin colors put into their own categories? “Oh she’s good looking…for a white girl”..I find it insulting and rude to make comments like that. Not everyone means it that way, but the old adage about thinking before you speak? It applies here.
