My friend Chika sent me this youtube link on facebook.
It's a pretty ignorant & offensive video, posted August 1 2009 by YouLoveMolly, and I'm hoping it's a crappy joke
I had 2 friends over, one regular one and one Indian one…I learned a lot about the Indian culture…if you didn’t know I guess Indians are like hindus... I know it’s not the right path, so hopefully Sara changes her mind.
The she rolls her previously recorded video
After Sara introduces herself
Molly: She’s Indian, it’s like an African country in Asia
Molly: Do you consider yourself Asian or African?
Sara: Asian of course
Molly: Cause you look African, but your Asian
Sara: I’m not African, I’m Asian
Rachael: but why are you so dark then…
Sara: Because I am Asian!!
Molly: but… why aren’t your eyes pointy…or slanted??
…..I know you can be what you want, but it’s not what you look like
Did you also hear about the Justice of Peace in Louisiana that refused to marry an interracial couple? dude regardless of your personal opinon no1) it's your job! no2) it's America 3) it's 2009 4) people like you make the south look bad
"I'm not a racist. I just don't believe in mixing the races that way," Bardwell told the Associated Press on Thursday. "I have piles and piles of black friends. They come to my home, I marry them, they use my bathroom. I treat them just like everyone else."

People I'm not saying I'm perfect! but please try to be sensitive when asking questions about race or religion, and c'mon if you are of a certain age, you should know better!
And last thing:
Most times when you want to know what someone is, I've learned it is safe to ask:
"What's your ethnicity" or "what's your nationality"
instead of What are you? or Where are you from?.... because you dont look....
Not all black people look the same,
Not all white people look the same,
Not all asian people look the same& I've heard this so... many times from different races, and if you think so it's just cause you are not exposed to various enthnicites, & trust me, if you live with a bunch of people from different races you will see the difference.
India is in Asia, so an Indian is Asian. & yes everyone can be racist, white, black, mixed, whatever, but we should try not to be.
I hope everyone is doing well, missed everyone, and would love to hear your comments.
ooooh & I changed my hair to brown, here's a cellphone pic I uploaded earlier on twitter:
