My apologies, I am often one who asks people about their heritage.

I find it is OK, if you are having a conversation and you’re both engaged and interested in each other. It’s when it’s a bombardment of random people, who haven’t asked “How are you?” that go straight to “Where are you from?”, “No, where are your parents from?” etc.

As always, there’s a difference between polite conversation/getting to know someone/taking an interest in their background to just fetishizing them and asking where they’re from. :)

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
