Me too! I am curious like I would be if there was an accent I did not recognize. I like to know people’s history and where they are from and where their families are from and where they have lived. No discrimination. On the contray, I think it is richness! Although I do understand the difficulty the writer reports. My husband is a person from “the world”, having lived in many countries with his family and having indian origin (having never lived in India!), so it is never easy for him to explain when people ask him where he is from.
