Since the politically correct movement started in the 90’s, people are so confused as to how to describe someone of another race. We are told to say “African American” when, as a prime example, half my friends are NOT from Africa! Some come from Barbados, Guiana, Jamaica. And more over even the term Asian is quite vague. Part of Russia is in Asia and I don’t think I would label someone from there as asian.
Point is, you’re making people floss over the truth when most of us see it how it really is:
We are different. But we are all human and God’s children.
I am white. Granted I’m 75% English and 25% Maltese, however, I exhibit more “white girl” tendencies. If it gets hotter than 15deg Celsius I’ll be sitting under an umbrella in shade. The bags under my eyes are so noticeable against my skin hence they show more of a blue/grey tone. If I was more Mediterranean I would be able to mask that with my olive skin tone. However…. I’m hairy like a Mediterranean, so some traits still passed down… (I would’ve like to have skipped that one.”
Point is, call things what they are. What you see. It’s not derogatory as long as u don’t use words like “chink,spick, n*gga(I don’t even think this should be used at all”rappers I’m talking to u” it just furthers the racist stigma.)
My best friend (Vietnamese/Chinese) comes to me all the time for “a white girls opinion” simply because we come from different worlds and sometimes we see things differently! But all in all shes my best friend in the world! I don’t feel put down when she calls me white, nor does she when I refer to her as asian.
Stop the derogatory remarks, and just call it is as you see it. We can all be friends and live as one if we can drop our guard and see that we are all human, but we must embrace our differences that make us stand out.
If God wanted us the same we would all be one color. Love who you are, embrace who you are, and share your culture with others, we have such a beautiful world.
