Don’t EVER tell a person of color that they don’t count as a (insert ethnicity) and assume that this is a compliment.
Don’t white-wash someone’s ethnicity just because they talk “proper” English or even if they grew up removed from their culture.
It angers me when people dismiss my differences. This is how white culture trains you to equally dismiss stories of POC who grew up in a different social/economic environment who are being abused or discriminated.
Somehow being raised by a white parent can get you a pass in the States. Don’t try to get me to abandon people like me just because you’ve accepted me despite my lineage.
Don’t try to make your non-white friends white. Befriend their differences, too.
