“You probably don’t speak English”

Michelle Liv,

As a person of color, it still angers me that mainstream society still regards what is “white” as “normal” or the status quo. I hate being judged on my racial appearance and assumed that I do not speak English because I am not white. These words were uttered to me at a coffee shop in downtown Manhattan when I was ignoring a man who accused me of cutting him in line.
