S always tells me I can pass off as a latina but I never believed that because I feel I look like an Indian.
This happened in a mall in San Diego.
Note – There are many Mexicans in San Diego due to the proximity to the border.
When I walked in to shops, the shop assistants would say ‘Hello, welcome!’to the Caucasians + others but say ‘Hola!’ to me.
One shop assistant spoke to me in Spanish and gave me perfume to smell.
In another shop, I was walking towards a door which was locked. The security guy told something in Spanish & I assumed he was not talking to me. Then, he told me in English that this door was locked. As I passed by I overheard him telling his colleague ‘looks Mexican but understands English only. Maybe she is American.’
Maybe, I look like a latina after all.
