no shade, but shade.

Are you sure she's white, though? The article says this study was focused on people of color. I assumed she was a really light mixed person.

#5 gave me high school and college flashback.

in high school there were only 3 black girls and these white folks kept asking me to try out for the play.  my one white friend was like you really should try out, so asked her what was the role and she told me it was a slave. she didnt know then but we were about to not be friends anymore.

a few years later in college my english lit professor asked to speak to me after class.  she said she really liked my voice and wanted me to do audio for a play she was writing.  i asked her what was the role....you already know where this is goingLOL  honestly i shouldve taken the part cuz she lowered my grade by an entire point but i didnt fight it.

i guess that depends on what youre used to seeing.  in my area i would just assume she was hispanic because most of the black people around here are.

Sorry, I just realized bhm censored the link. It said the word n-i-go in the link. But it had no racial meaning it was n-i-g-a-t-u.

Just google buzzfeed and the racial microagressions like someone said here . I would just post them all, but I'm using my phone to type.



Sorry

Thanks modeless

If she's black and white mixed....then i'll take it back...sorta.
 
I feel like in articles like this Greek/Italian etc want to say that they're not white in an effort to no be left out.  IMO.  But hey... if i'm wrong then my bad.
 
I have other words but that's too much work right now.

Black latinos do exist, and if this was done at Fordham in NYC, she could very well be Puerto Rican, Dominican or Cuban.

one of these happened to a friend of mine. he's filipino american. someone white actually asked him where he was from. when he replied america, they we like-- no. for real, what island are you from?

to which he replied: Confused i'm from nj. the closest island to where i grew up is manhattan. Stern Smile

i really didn't have words when he told me that story. Ermm
