We like sandy blond hair so much that we would trademark it at the U.S. Patents Office if we could. A sure fire way to annoy a mixed person is by staring at their hair and asking, “Is that your natural hair color?” and then continue staring at them in near disbelief. The mixed person will politely reassure you it is indeed their natural hair color until you calm down but secretly they will put you on their mental check-list of people who just don’t get it.
Memorize this before interacting with a mixed person and you will stay in their good grace.
