Danger Of A Single Story

to have a single story means that people think one thing about you to think that African Americans are gangsters, or that Mexicans are immigrants ,or that wights are rich . but not every one it like that. not all of us are the same not all of us have the same story.One single story that I have herd or have seen in person is that sometimes I go to the stores with my mom like H.E.B or Walmart and they Jude her by her color like people start to talk to her in Spanish without knowing that she also knows English and that bothers me and some people ask her if she takes care of me or something they don't believe that i am her daughter because I am lighter than her and she is dark skinned.Another story that I have been part of is with my Dad he also speeked Spanish but he is wight , light skinned and also people start to talk to him in English and call him a Gringo but really he speaks Spanish and he is Hispanic. alto of things like that bug's me and they bother me. See that people cant just judge you from the outside so remember next time to think before you speak and to maybe try to learn more about the person before you judge them for there looks or color. Just to let you know some of that stuff can really bother people and hurt there feelings ,get them mad ,offend them, maybe even start to believe you.
