    I'm South Asian and people think I'm too "white" to be south Asian.
    I actually thought you were Arab

    I'm black and can't say I love chicken (WHICH I REALLY REALLY REALLY DO TBH) without this one person saying 'not failing to live up to the stereotypes, eh?'

    That is a stereotype I am willing to accept, thanks.

    Although one girl told me I don't look like a typical Ivorian girl. We all look different, so what is the 'normal' one supposed to look like? :curious:

    ignorant dumb beaches usually run by trying to have a quick convo with me with that ''ching chong'' BS of theirs...i dont ******* speak mandarin or cantonese, im not even chinese you dumb beach. Asia is diverse but these people fail to see it...and they have big frog eyes to see with SMH
    I thought you were Chinese man..

    People do that "ching ching" or "chow mien" to me on the street so I tell them I'm from Kyrgyzstan and they don't know where that is. I tell them its next to Portugal and they get all silent and amazed. Ignorance is funny.

    We were randomly watching Rihanna's 'where have you been' music video and when we got to the desert scenes proper, my friend asked
    "You guys live there with huts right?''

    Yes I am black,
    Yes I was asked this question in 2016,
    Yes, I was utterly shocked,
    Yes, this girl and I are still friends, close friends

    circa 2013, at a ball in Maidenhead. I'm Romanian. He got to feel a good Romanian fist up his chinny chin chin.
