    15 Experiences Every Multiracial Person Understands

    Because you've been having these conversations since you were a kid.

    1. Excuse me, what ARE you?

    Via giphy.com

    I don't even know you!!

    2. You don't look like you are.

    Via giphy.com

    Yeah, it sucks when people think I'm not part of the family.

    3. Are you adopted?

    Via giphy.com

    No...that's my dad.

    4. You can't be both, you have to choose!

    Via giphy.com

    Because you're not comfortable with me identifying as both? That's your problem.

    5. So where are you REALLY from?

    Via giphy.com

    Seriously, I'm from Canada.

    6. You're not one of us.

    Via gihpy.com

    7. Oh, you're just half.

    Via giphy.com

    Just half? As in, not really? Not enough? Not worthy?

    8. 你好,我可以帮你吗?

    Via giphy.com

    ??? I'm not even Asian!

    9. So you celebrate Christmas and Chanukah?

    10. You're so exotic!

    Via giphy.com

    I know you mean that as a compliment, but let's save "exotic" for parrots and venus fly traps.

    11. Why do you act white and deny your heritage?

    Via giphy.com

    12. Your mom is the Asian one, right?

    Via giphy.com

    13. I'm mixed too!

    Via giphy.com

    You are?! Where did you grow up? Do you have siblings? Tell me your life story!!!

    14. Can I touch your hair?

    Via giphy.com

    15. Why do you have such a weird name?
