Racial minorities, do you ever forget that you're not white?

I know it's kind of an odd question but I'm a little curious.

  • Nonwhites are reminded everyday that they aren't white. It isn't something the majority really have to think about.

  • As a white person, this question is sort of upsetting and eye-opening. It must be tough to constantly be aware of something as seemingly trivial as the way you look and the color of your skin. I have the luxury of never having to think about my whiteness, since I fit in with the "standard" look of my country. I hope things even out over time, and people become less racially biased.

  • depends where you live. there are more East-Asian people than any other race
    so white people are a minority in a global sense

    • I guess I shouldn't of asked this. I know someone who is black and he tells me that he sometimes forgets it so that's why I asked.

  • As a mixed blood, sometimes its not always the most important issue that I think of or get attention for but I always personally remember that I am not entirely of Caucasian descent.

  • Sometimes I forget I am white. For example; when I dance LOL

    But, it saddens me to know that people out there still see themselves as a color or race besides basic stereotypes and cultures. Racism to me is one of the ugliest, dirtiest things in the world and it burns me. You shouldn't be telling yourselves that because you're a certain color you're any different. You are different because of your cultures, and that's awesome. But you're no less entitled to be on this earth than anyone else.

  • The dynamics are changing in society the minorities will be the majority by 2044 as interracial marriage and babies are a developing trend. I'm a minority since I'm Hispanic, Mexican-American but I have never felt nor wanted to be white. I'm proud of my heritage but American nonetheless. I find your question to be dense as hell by the way.
