You’re Mexican? Then why are you white?

Anahi Miranda, escondido, california, .

This is my exact face when people tell me this. Every where I go there’s always one person who asks ” If you’re Mexican then why are you white?” Especially at my job many hispanic workers won’t approach me because they think I don’t speak Spanish, and once they hear me speak the language they seem so surprised. Ever since I was younger this has always been something that happens to me and by now Ive gotten used to it.
