17 Things Only Kids Who Grew Up In A Mixed Race Household Would Understand

Deep appreciation for not burning in 12 degree heat.

1. Fusion food was a staple in your house long before it became a food trend.

One of your parents claims a meal isn't a meal if it isn't served with rice. Another puts lime pickle on spaghetti.


5. They have no idea how your hair/skin works.

My heart goes out to the mixed race children who have parents that don't know what to do with their hair

when i see mixed race girls with their hair up but their edges are a mess i assume their mum is white n that's y they don't know about gel


every time i go out i get that one mum that's like "i have a mixed race daughter and i don't know what to do with her hair"

Your white aunties not realising that Asian hair can't curl, or how to deal with baby hair.


10. Or your siblings.

brother is so much more tanned yet I'm olive, we have full mixed race struggles.

Why is your sister so dark yet you stay a steady shade of yellow?

11. Not to mention all the questions you get about your family name.

Big ups to the Queens lady who after seeing my Spanish surname said "You don't look like a [surname]. You're so tall!" Ay. Awkward. 😞

"You don't look like a Henry."
