today at school we were talking about mexican food. i don’t usually talk during class…but i was interested in the conversation, since at least half of the people in my fully hispanic class did not know what horchata was.
i decided to be that one person to explain to the class and help them out. but as soon as i started talking, one girl interrupted me “how would you know, you’re white :/”
god, that pissed me off. im not caucasian.
i am just light-skinned. (not even. she was overreacting) i am fully hispanic, nothing else
and technically everyone in the classroom was, racially speaking, white. i explained this to her.
her response was “no one cares. you look white so that’s what you are. you are not the same as me and we can not share the same culture”
like? ?? bitch, you didn’t even know what fucking horchata or arroz con leche was. shut the fuck up.
