    Yeah on some days, it does hurt to know that they only hate you because you're a mix of two races, and not acknowledge your existence even a little bit
    It's so unfortunate because they're obviously missing out on how interesting you are...

    Some people say that I have a beautiful ethnic mix

    Other people have called me things like a half breed. I relate more to my Indian side because I lived in India for years

    It's always like that haha, our mixes are dope but we're often not satisfied with our appearance (i think your mix is pretty!! )

    It may be because of the expectation that mixed people are supposed to fit this mould of a gorgeous person
