I don't know why anyone would get angry over that question....?
Because depending on how it is asked, it can be offensive
, esp. from a stranger.
I guess it's because people of mixed race (and those who look like they could be mixed) often encounter ignorance and stereotypes.
Personally, I've always been asked "what are you?" all my life.
After a while, the question gets old. I get t
ired of constantly having to explain why I look this way
. Sometimes I just want to be me, know what I mean? Without having to talk about my race/ethnicity/nationality/ancestry and all that jazz.
Sometimes a person simply wants to get through the day without being stared at like they're a freak show and constantly questioned about their background
