Yes, mostly for my race. It's not bad anymore but growing up in a predominantly white town... you get the idea!
Anyone European here?
Race can be very trivial sometimes. Why bother with it?
In Nuovoiork, everyone is a minority. We don't have this "majoritarian" problem. I am of the opinion that racial diversity is a mixed blessing.
Welcome to the real world... or at least parts of it, especially in North America.
Now, race isn’t even something beyond a social construct. The origins of race all boil down to eugenics. Charles Darwin had a cousin who was a prominent figure in the eugenics movement — ironically.
We might appear different due to our DNA, but which human being (besides twins, triplets, etc...) have the same DNA? And we might behave different, but are we all of the same culture? In reality, we’re more similar than anyone likes to think. People of one “race” likely have more DNA similarities to a person of another, rather than someone of their own.
Race was created to justify disparities and baseless judgements in society.
So you can see why it is used as fuel for hatred and divide.
