My skin is brown. If someone saw me and didn’t talk to me, it is very possible they would think that I wasn’t from America.
But fact of life: I am from America. I was born here, I was raised here. I have spent as much time in India as any other given person who has gone on vacation to any other country.
So when people start talking about sending us back to where we came from, I wonder exactly where they think someone like me should go. If they think they could send me back to India, it’d be the same as if they were sent to the country of their ancestry.
I don’t know the systems there. I know how to go on vacation there.
My home is here. Everything is here. If you want to send me back to where I was born, it literally would be about an hour away from where I’m sitting right now.
America is my country. For those of you who can’t seem to get that we are a country of many different ethnicities, get over it.
