Mixed Folks, What Do You Wish People Would Stop Saying To You?

We wanna know!

As someone who's mixed, I've heard an ungodly amount of nonsense throughout my life. And if you're also multiracial, I bet you have too.


Maybe you're sick of hearing "What are you?" because it feels super dehumanizing to you.


Perhaps you hate people constantly telling you how "exotic" your beauty is because you don't exist on this planet to be someone else's fetish.

Or maybe you're so over people asking, "Where are you from? No, where are you really from?" because it's 2021, and people should know how to act by now.


Whatever it is, we wanna hear it! Tell us what you're tired of hearing as a mixed person — and don't forget to explain WHY — for a chance to be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community post!
