    So i use to live in Toronto then moved about an hour away. Toronto has many different cultures so ur use to seeing Indians, spanish, jamaican, portuguese, italian........everything! Very multicultural.

    Well i moved to city outside of toronto...about a good hour away..and basically there is puure white people its rare that u see a black person. im mixed with with european and west indian so im not exactly white. And i notice that people stare at me ALOT more here then Toronto. And i dont know if there looking at me b.c i look funny or what! it makes me really nervous.

    i dont dress dress differently, and i dont have crazy hair lol.
    So how do u know when someone is staring ina bad way or good?

    If they're staring at you and clenching their fist/jaw or brandishing a weapon then they've probably got malevolent intentions.

    More often than not, people will just be staring at you because they are surprised to see a non-white person and are wondering what you're doing there.
