Why do so many people make fun of my accent?
I'm Filipina, grew up in Singapore speaking mostly Chinesee. My English is getting pretty good now, but so many people think I'm dumb because I have an accent.
This is a nation of immigrants, the US, and nearly everyone had parents or maybe grandparents who also had an accent when speaking English.. or maybe a great grandparent!
Why are they so intolerant of people with accents? I'm very pretty but a lot of guys will have nothing to do with me after they hear my accent.
What's Your Opinion?
