My mom who is about Eastern European mutt as it gets had a coworker ask her if she was part AA once. We all laugh at it since her grandparents came from a part of Eastern Europe that had and has little immigration from Africa or even at all. My grandmother though got genuinely offended at the idea that my Mom may have African blood. I forgave her since she's old obviously but I really do hope people get over their prejduces about this sort of thing. My first niece is going to be of white European and Peruvian decent and my brother's already talking about not allowing her to date until she's 40.
