Strangers tend to ask me for help in Math, and no one else. If only they knew that I'm actually a dumb asian.........

Yup, made fun of/bullied because I was the only Asian (besides one other) in the whole school, surrounded by white people. This was a long time ago though, of course. 3rd grade-ish.

While shopping at True Religion (which is a somewhat high priced store if you didn't know) with a few friends. My friends and I were mistaken for a rappers because of or race by a European couple and asked to have our picture taken with them

Well I'm white so probably but I don't keep track or get all bothered by it.

I remember the first (and thankfully only) time I was accused of being racist. I was in middle school and I made a comment about how one of my black friends resembled another black person (I do this all the time with my friends). She got all mad and said, "What do we all look alike to you?" The implication completely went over my head at first so I stared at her like she was crazy and said, "No." I then realized what she meant and felt really bad that I had offended her and apologized. Then I thought, "Why would she even think that of me we are friends? Do I real come of as that big of a jerk?" I can't really blame her considering the area we live in (mostly old white rednecks) I'm sure she was used to being harassed.

It happens to me sometimes. Just because someone is from a Hispanic/Latino Ethnicity does not mean they are Mexican. I am Hispanic and I am mixed.

After moving from Vicksburg to Florence (in Mississippi), I've been called "white girl" and "ghost" by some of my former classmates. Being called "white girl" within the first week of 7th grade was when I first noticed racism. Until then, I viewed the different colors and looks of people the same way most people see the coat patterns and appearances of cats, dogs, horses, and whatnot. I never thought that there was anything negative about such things until 7th grade. I was once so naive.

I blast my headphones, and need to wear glasses but take them off when i don't wanna see if anyone is giving me the evil eye as i walk by so It doesn't bother me if your only going to judge me based on what my "people" are associated with then your not worth the air your breathing up.

DON"T be racist
