Not being white

Not being white. It’s hard. When you walk into a room the first thing you see about people is how they look. Their exterior. Obviously we rely on this to try and create a sense of who that person is because we have no other information to go on. Whether they look scruffy or neat. Fashionable or plain. When you’re not white, you can’t just look decent and expect to be treated like a white person looking decent. It’s hard to put into words what I mean. Basically if you’re not white you have to try even more to look decent so people think you’re not scruffy or dirty or lazy. You try and look more European and western to try and fit in. It sucks because people don’t realise that having traits like curly hair or darker skin doesn’t make you messy or dirty. It make you unique. It’s hard to put into words what I’m saying.
