I’m Me, You’re You, Both Beautiful

I get told all the time I must be racist because of my heritage. But you don’t know my heritage. I don’t happen to look like my ancestry (Hmm, wonder what that could be from? Could I be two different races for some reason? Think hard.) I didn’t get to choose my ancestors any more than you got to choose yours. Pretending you know all about someone because of their physical characteristics or where you think they came from is just wrong no matter who does it. If you want to judge anyone, do it by their character and actions, not by their ancestors or their appearance.
