Fellow Colombian-American here, other times people expect me to act like Gloria Delgado all the time and are confused as of why I am Colombian yet I fail to act like a Latina bombshell

A lot of people are clueless about why some of us with a mixed cultural and ethnic heritage wanna talk about this so much. Because we are trying to explain how we feel in a world when we get dismissed or not taken seriously when we don’t look or act (insert race, ethnicity, country of origin) “enough”, but we belong to all of them but in different ways, and it’s hurtful when we don’t get accepted in any of them. We are not trying to act important, we just want to explain how we see the world.
