My professor on losing your identity as a kid (via lasfloresdemayo)
THIS is EVERYTHING THOUGH
im so angry
!!!!! Or to a black child “why is your hair like that?”
For those who don’t know, this is exactly how I wound up not speaking my language anymore. And exactly how I lost my accent.
The kids at school made fun of me until they convinced me that because I was in America, I needed to speak like an American.
ugh, i remember getting shit on by OTHER FILIPINO KIDS (i see u, u know who u are) in elementary after moving to canada 9 years ago for speaking to them in tagalog and being a ‘fob’
now i can barely speak tagalog and get compliments from ppl for not having a filipino accent… like i’m supposed to be proud of that???
