American first, Mexican second, Human nonetheless.

I am a Mexican American woman and I so happen to be bilingual. A lot of times at work people will ask me if I speak spanish or will make hand signals to me and mouth really slow that they need a to-go box. It gets under my skin because in my head I’m like “really? i understand you.” I sometimes don’t believe people think I am from America because I have dark skin.
