Why are people always so curious about what my racial makeup is? They treat it like it’s a game- like they’re going to win a prize if they get it right. The overly asked question “What are you?” often is directed at me by individuals who are just meeting me the first time or don’t know me that well at all. I don’t see what the big deal is. Mixed race people are growing in population and that is just something that people are just going to have to get used to.
