I get the "are you Jewish?" thing alot as well, which irratates me to no end in all the assumptions that represents.

I get the "what is she?/are they?" comments in regards to my daughters when my husbandisnt with us. I usually respond with "a girl!" or "human!"

Im caucasian American and my husband is a fairly light skinned Mexican.... But in our very white neighborhood back in the US people thought my daughters are sooo " tan" . We now live in Mexico and everywheere we go people call the three of us girls "gueras" /white . Funnyhow things change dependingon context, isnt it?

Im so sorry that there are so many prejudiced people out there. We are all beautiful, no matter our "mix" .


Lol! I love your response to the first bolded comment!

To the second, I agree with your sentiment. If only more people thought the same.
