    hi,

    im in a very caucasian (i am also too by the way) and I feel like a couple of the comments could be borderlining on offensive but im not really sure what to do.

    so I was sitting at lunch and my friend said “OMG liturally all aisians are soo pretty. theres not a ugly one out of all of them“. and stuff like “i was totally born in the wrong country i should 100% be asian. i love all of them”. she said other stuff but im struglling to remember it 100% correctly.

    anyway from what you did hear i was wondering if i should should confront her about it? any adive would help ;)

    Hi there!

    I'd take these more as a compliment than a racial abuse kinda thing, although it is singling out one race, even though it's compliments. If it bugs you and don't like, maybe just tell them gently and not like "HEY STOP THIS. I WILL TELL THE TEACHER". If it doesn't, then you can leave it but if it ever gets too much, tell them <3

    as an asian, I take this as asian fishing and I don’t find it offensive but I would prefer if they didn’t act this way as they clearly do not realise the privileges of being white which is very annoying considering what I have to go through on a daily basis
