Hiding From Racism


So this happened to me once but while I was travelling. I do not want to say when and where because I don’t want my readers to associate people with stereotypes.

I guess I am lucky that my body is “big” and add my brown skin color into the equation, many assumed that I am a Pacific Islander like a Samoan or a native from either Hawaii or New Zealand. Because of that, I can easily pretend to be them when I am too lazy or afraid of facing this type of racist person. Manage to fool them easily due to their ignorance of other culture.
