No way! You speak Spanish?!

When people look at me they think I’m white. Once I start speaking perfect Spanish, they freak out and ask me either where I’ve learned it, or if I am from Mexico. Even, when I tell them that I am from Argentina, they automatically think that just my parents are. Just because we speak Spanish doesn’t mean we are all Mexican. Or when they ask “Why are you white?” as if every Latino is dark. You think I would be used to it, but it shocks me every time, the things people come up with. CBU HIST 311
