I’m like…sort of weirded out when people label me as a PoC or tag a picture of me as “dancers of color”. Yes!! I’m very happy that you are excited that I’m asian. It is a very neat thing about me. However, I’m also half white. And that label sort of erases/ignores that part of me. People on tumblr are very quick to discard/dismiss whiteness as plainness. Let me start by saying that the racial identity of a bi-racial kid is already such a strange and odd place to be. I don’t like that I’m expected to stand on either side of the fence, because both parts are equally important to me. I want to feel that I am allowed to exist as I am, and it makes it very difficult when I’m labeled or categorized by others into groups that I don’t completely fit into. Especially when half of me is erased because “white is boring”. Let me tell you something: nobody is boring. Whatever you are, you are beautiful, and whatever 6 different things or one thing you are, you are allowed to be that. All of it. And not just the parts that are exotic or not exotic. I would like to conclude this by saying that I personally wish not to be categorized by my race. That is my wish. For others, it might be different. But unless I am accepted for all that I am, I would like it to simply be left out of my description.
I really love your dedication to God and your spirituality. I am agnostic (I'm very conflicted when it comes to these labels but that's the best one in my case) however I truly admire your love for God and how you gain strength through Him. I find it inspiring and at times envy it because I don't think I could ever give so much of myself to well anything. Anyway just wanted to say that you're doing pretty awesome and to keep it up! 😁
