Redheads get lots of stares too!
So true. My boyfriend and I get a lot of stares, mostly from Black or Latin people. He is mestizo of Puerto Rican descent and I am mixed, with an Afro-Panamanian mother (who is dark skinned, but mixed) and a mestizo Puerto Rican father. Dark skinned black women stare at me as if to ask “how did she manage to do that” and mestizos tend to stare at me like I am diluting the culture. Little do they both know, Latinos can be of ANY race and we don’t think of ourselves as an “interracial couple”.
