How to Play the "Where Are You From" Game
- •Meet me. See that I'm not white.
- •Ask me where I'm from.
- •No, but like, where am I really from?
- •Do not accept my answer that I'm from Marietta, Georgia.
- •Ask me again, what's my "ethnic" background though?
- •Nod in relief when I say my family is from India.
- •Talk to me at length about your tenuous spiritual connection to India.
- •Refuse to understand why I find this conversation tedious at best and offensive at worst.
