So, the other night I hung out with some new people. Theres one other girl, and she takes it upon herself to grill me. That's fine. I'm a big girl and I can take it. Heres a rundown of our conversation:
Girl: So whats your background? What are you?
Me: Mexican and Indian.
Girl: What kind of Indian?
Me: Cherokee and a little Creek
Girl: Oh, so you're a white Indian?
Her reasoning for calling me a 'white' Indian is that Cherokees get a lot of help from the government. So basically, she was jealous. Cherokees walked the trail of tears just like every other Indian. Later she said that she was referring to the blonde girls who claim to be Cherokees, not necessarily me. Uh Huh...Sure...
It went down hill from there, from then on she would randomly say things like 'I like you, you act like a white girl' When I would question her about her statement and explain that its racist and that I'm NOT a white girl, she would just say that white girls are quiet and don't cause drama. WHAT???
Let your ignorance flag wave high.
