"you sound white."

“you sound white.” this was said to me last week by a new friend, a white male, i’d just met. i’ve had to take some time before writing this blog post to raise some awareness in this area of ignorance. this is also not the first time those 3 words have been said to me… interestingly enough, the other time it was said to me was also by a white male back in college, who, at that time, was one of my good friends. we’ve lost touch since then (not because of that).
