ohh, some of these posts just made my day. Is it horrible that reading other peoples' rants and bad experiences makes me feel a connection with them?
I don't consider asking someone if they are mixed to be offensive. However, I have been asked (by total strangers!) if I am Jewish. Talk about some serious awkwardness.
1. Judaism is a religion, not a race. I have known Jews from many different countries who looked nothing like each other.
2. I'm pretty sure the reason they asked me is because not only do I have dark wurly hair, I also have a huge nose.
now, THAT is some offensive shhh. And it's happened on more than one occasion.
