Leave my siblings alone you bigots

Katie Hutchison,
Akron, OH

My siblings and I are all adopted, but they were adopted from South Korea and I am white. Growing up I often heard people, not realizing I was their sister, calling them derogatory names or even just marveling about them but in a sort of racist way like “Oh, look, a Chinese boy” or “she’s cute for an Asian girl” or the standard “where are they really from?” question. As the older sister I always tried to stand up to the idiots, but I know I wasn’t able to catch everyone.
